Why is proper asbestos transportation important?

Improper handling of asbestos-containing materials puts workers and the general public at risk of developing asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.

The risk of developing one of these diseases increases with every asbestos exposure. Unfortunately, mesothelioma specialists haven’t found a cure for mesothelioma or any other asbestos-related diseases. That’s why strict regulations on the handling and disposing of asbestos-containing materials have become law.

Apart from the health concerns mentioned above, improper handling of asbestos can also land a project on the wrong side of the law and compel the project heads to pay hefty fines or face lawsuits.

Why is it critical to remove asbestos from properties?

  • Asbestos is carcinogenic.
  • Prolonged exposure can lead to a myriad of respiratory illnesses.
  • Asbestos exposure can also lead to mesothelioma – the medical term for tumours that manifests in the tissue lining of lungs, stomach, heart and other major organs.

Our Approach: How do we transport asbestos properly?

We will start by planning the approach by assessing the size and severity of the asbestos transport project.

We will then go ahead and prepare the work area by sealing it off with plastic sheeting and negative air pressure unit. These are essential as it is the only way to ensure contamination is kept within the work area. We will also put up warning signs to alert others that an asbestos transportation project is underway.

Our workers will then proceed with their duties after wearing personal safety protection suits.

We maintain strict safety protocols in the work area by disabling all forms of HVAC units if the work area is inside a building. Our workers will then go ahead by using wet wipes or a HEPA vacuum to clean asbestos off immovable objects to control dust.

All the asbestos collected will be placed inside 6-millimetre thick plastic bags and enclosed in a plastic, leak-tight container with a lid and proper labelling.

After this, we will transport the asbestos in special landfills that are designated to receive asbestos waste.
