Environment, Health & Safety
The health and safety of your staff, contractors, and the general population should be your first concern when undertaking your project. There can be no way of knowing from a surface level inspection what type of contaminants may be disturbed as building begins, which is why it’s so critical for you to work with the NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) Laboratory to ensure you’re meeting strict national and state-wide asbestos legislation.
At Edge Group, we are committed to providing exceptional consultancy services for clients in both the private and public sphere – from national corporations, government agencies to residential homeowners. Australians are aware of the dangers of asbestos, which is why you are required – by legislation – to have the workplace inspected for potential asbestos-containing materials.
