Between the 1920s to the 1980s, Australia was one of the most significant users of asbestos in the world. The affordable, robust, weatherproof and fire retardant nature of asbestos made it a popular building material, especially in commercial and industrial enterprises.
Asbestos was phased out in the 1980s and was banned from importation, sale, storage and use Australia wide in 2003 due to significant health risks including:
Australia has some of the highest recorded occurrences of mesothelioma and asbestosis in the world due to its heavy use in industrial enterprise. There is still no cure for these diseases.
The only way to positively identify asbestos contamination is to have samples tested in a NATA accredited laboratory.
The expert staff here at AHI Asbestos Consultants offers comprehensive asbestos identification and testing services for commercial and industrial enterprises. We utilise only NATA accredited facilities and produce results with fast turnarounds.
