Safework and the EPA have handed out a total of 74 compliance notices to 11 licensed removers after conducting a recent audit.

The notices call for improvements on a variety of matters including asbestos removal methods, safe storage and the frequency of respiratory equipment testing. 

SafeWork SA executive director Bryan Russell  revealed that this was simply the the first stage of a statewide audit of 70 licensed removalists.

“We will not be happy until asbestos is removed entirely from all workplaces but obviously that’s a long-term vision and we’re working towards ensuring that the safest possible processes are in place to manage asbestos in its current form,” he said.

Mr Russell has been pleased with cooperation most companies have had with them.

“This is not something that you would be complacent with. Asbestos is not an area that we would ever say that we are satisfied with what’s happening,” he said.

“We will remain vigilant and we expect businesses to be vigilant with respect to the management of asbestos.
