Why There is No Excuse to Using Asbestos-Free Materials
We are serious about preventing any health problems by providing asbestos survey testing and removal services in Perth and the surrounding areas.
In case you are not fully aware of the risks asbestos poses to you, your family or your workers’ health, we've gathered some reliable facts for you.
A Silent Killer
Asbestos is like an invisible dagger that gradually drains your blood until your last breath. Research showed that inhaling asbestos fibres could cause a range of conditions, including fibrotic lung disease (asbestosis) and changes in the lining of the chest cavity (pleura). Prolonged exposure to asbestos could likewise lead to reduced respiratory function, lung cancer and death.
There is no other benefit gained from using this material other than reduced building cost. Do not want to put your family, workers, or customers in great danger just because you want to save money?
The Risks Outweigh the Benefits
Take the Perth Children’s Hospital as an example. This medical facility should have been operational before Christmas, but because experts found asbestos in the roof panels used during construction, the State Government postponed the initial plan and required everyone involved in the project to take the right action.
According to reports, the responsibility for this incident is not with the construction company, but the importers and exporters of the roof panels who failed to ensure their products do not contain asbestos. Imagine how frustrating this has been for parents who hoped their children could stay in a new, state-of-the-art and safe medical facility as they recover from their illnesses.
We strongly believe and agree that construction companies must use asbestos-free materials when building any type of structure. If you find any trace of asbestos in your property, you want your building checked for potential risks, or you need expert asbestos removal services, contact us immediately.
