assist in addressing asbestos contamination issues at your site.


Asbestos was once in widespread use, forming a key part of many buildings in Australia. Over time, buildings have been demolished and rebuilt, but the asbestos contamination has remained. As a result, asbestos in soils has become one of the most common forms of asbestos contamination.

Asbestos can be extremely damaging if staff, workers or customers are exposed to it. It can mean cancer or asbestosis, and you may only see symptoms ten years after the exposure. This is why OccSafe Australia provide assessments for asbestos in soil, to ensure that worksites are safe for your employees to use.

Get the most knowledgeable asbestos management available

Asbestos in soils has been managed differently depending on the state or territory, but the process has recently been merged under the OH&S regulations. OccSafe Australia has the knowledge at hand to complete a professional and expert assessment of asbestos in soils with a full suite of services and assessments.

Our services will conduct a preliminary site investigation (PSI) to identify any surface level or superficial evidence of contamination of asbestos in soils. This will give enough data to proceed onto deeper investigative techniques, employing a detailed site investigation (DSI) that will more closely assess the contents of your soil. We will complete test pit excavations, remediation consulting, clearances and site management plans in an effort to make your soil safe for workers.
