Maynard Marks can assist you with the identification, management, removal and provision of clearance certification for Asbestos.
Engaging Maynard Marks to initially complete an Asbestos Management Survey (also known as Asbestos Risk Assessment Report) will enable you to become aware of and then to manage asbestos containing materials (ACM) during the normal occupation and use of a premise.
Our Asbestos Management Surveys will satisfy the Health & Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016 (Regulation 10) which requires that “A Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU) with management or control of a workplace who knows or ought reasonably to know that there is a risk of exposure to respirable asbestos fibres in the workplace must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that all asbestos or ACM giving rise to the risk at the workplace is identified”.
If you are planning any refurbishment or demolition work on any building (including residential dwellings or homes) or plant, constructed or installed before 1 January 2000, the Regulations (Subpart 4) also state that a PCBU must not carry out any work until the structure or plant is inspected for asbestos by a “competent person”.
If asbestos is identified prior to any refurbishment or demolition work, in the areas affected by the proposed work then the asbestos must be removed before any other work commences.
The process to complete a Refurbishment or Demolition Survey will involve more extensive and intrusive investigative work, which would not necessarily have been completed during the Asbestos Management Survey.
Our team of Asbestos Surveyors can provide Refurbishment or Demolition Surveys and are independent “Licensed Asbestos Assessors” by WorkSafe New Zealand. We can therefore also complete Clearance Inspections and issue Clearance Certificates for all types of Asbestos removal works.
The benefit of engaging Maynard Marks is that we employ a large team of Licensed Asbestos Assessors with the globally recognised British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) P402 and P405 qualifications in the surveying, sampling and management of asbestos in buildings.
Our surveyors work to the highest industry standards and follow the Worksafe New Zealand Approved Code of Practice: Management and Removal of Asbestos, when completing survey work, reporting and when involved in the management of works for the removal or other treatment of Asbestos, ultimately providing you peace of mind.
