Asbestos Safety & Management

Asbestos Risk Assessments


At OHSS, our assessment reports provide full documentation of the location, type, quantity and condition of Asbestos Containing Materials. They include practical recommendations for compliance where applicable.

 

The key to a successful asbestos risk assessment and a quality management system is accurate information and thorough risk evaluations. We work closely with building owners, managers, architects and other professionals so that our risk assessments of any asbestos containing materials meet your needs and properly controls any related risks and liabilities.

 

If you suspect elevated levels of risk in an area where any work is performed, you must evaluate the risks involved before proceeding with any work or preparation. Building owners, employers, and contractors have a legal obligation to obtain information about all asbestos containing materials in their facilities.

 

At OHSS, we help ensure all obligations and legal standards are met. All of our survey methods, fibre analysis, quality management, and report formats conform to the highest quality standards. Our team is made up of experts on all the legislation and the guidelines that surround safety measures and best practices when carrying out a survey for asbestos and assessing the risks caused by its presence.
