Asbestos Removal During Renovation and Demolition

If you are undertaking a renovation to your home or office then you likely need to consider the possibility of Asbestos being present.

Property development such as renovations or demolitions, involving asbestos material removal must be undertaken by a licensed professional under Clause 318 of the Occupational Health & Safety Regulation 2001. The only exception to this requirement is where less than 10 square metres of bonded (sheet form) asbestos being removed.
