Asbestos Air Monitoring 

Asbestos Air Monitoring is conducted to ensure that people are not exposed to a level of asbestos dust that places their health at risk and that the control measures in place are effective. Risk of exposure to high levels of asbestos dust may occur where asbestos is being removed or disturbed, or where known asbestos-containing materials are degrading and potentially liberating airborne fibres.

Air monitoring is the only way of ensuring an area is safe from air born fibres. All types of Air monitoring are performed following the Safe Work Australia's Guidance note on the membrane filter methods for estimation of airborne asbestos fibres, 2nd edition, 2005 [NOHSC:30039(2005)] and tested in a NATA accredited laboratory.

Types of air monitoring 

Global Asbestos Audits performs all types of asbestos air monitoring including:

  1. Background/Ambient – Where concerns exist that asbestos fibres are present within an area.

  2. Exposure (personal) – To assess individual exposure during maintenance or other works processes.

  3. Control – During asbestos removals or maintenance works, to establish the efficacy of control measures.

  4. Clearance – To determine what areas are safe for reoccupation following asbestos removal or maintenance works.
