Total Roofing Site safe practitioners and accredited asbestos removal specialists know how to safely remove asbestos from a commercial building safely and disposal of asbestos.

New regulations require any asbestos containing roofs to be replaced and that landlords have a compliant management plan regarding asbestos in the workplace. To reduce the stress of dealing with asbestos in your workplace, Total Roofing can:

  • identify asbestos containing material (ACM) by means of analysis
  • help with a compliant management programme
  • safely remove and dispose of asbestos from your roof
Still unsure about asbestos in your workplace?  Contact the Auckland roofing specialists at Total Roofing today. If your asbestos problems mean your existing roof is unsafe to remain, our team can help you with roof replacement to ensure your compliance.

Why is asbestos such an issue?

Asbestos is both fire and moisture resistant so it was a popular building material for many years, used in areas such as pipe lagging, insulation and cladding. However, the fibres can be released into the air where they can remain and cause respiratory problems and, after long-term exposure, asbestosis, a problem with the lung tissue, and cancer.

Raw asbestos has been banned in New Zealand for several decades and more recently a ban has been imposed on importing asbestos-containing products.

Products containing asbestos can be dangerous if they begin to break or fall into disrepair, as is the case with many older buildings. Problems can also occur if renovation work is carried out on buildings which contain asbestos as the fibres can be disturbed.

New regulations put the onus on organisations and businesses to deal with asbestos removal

Changes to the Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) regulations were implemented in 2016 to urgently control the use and removal of asbestos in the workplace. These regulations affect commercial and industrial buildings built prior to 2000.

What the regulations mean for businesses and organisations.

The regulations bring in a new role known the Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU). A PCBU can be a business, including franchises, building contractors and self-employed people or an undertaking which includes schools and early childhood services, government agencies and charities. The PCBU must implement the new safety regulations.

Unless you have already done so, you must now record the location of any Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) at your site.

You must also:

  • prepare an asbestos register that is kept at the workplace.
  • not allow a worker to carry out work involving asbestos or direct any work to be carried out in areas with ACM
  • get all ACM identified by an appropriately qualified person
  • ensure samples of material are analysed to confirm the presence of ACM.
Total Roofing can help minimise the hassle of dealing with ACM by removing asbestos safely. Contact us for more information.
