Why Use A Certified Company?

A brief explanation
The Department Requirements

By law, businesses that use or work around asbestos are charged with ensuring that asbestos containing materials (ACMs) are identified and managed or maintained by a qualified person or company. 

Once identified, the information required by the government relating to asbestos includes a full description of the material (inventory), its risk category and potential exposure scenarios (surveys), and the company’s plans to remove and manage the product (management). 

The Whole Picture

What some companies don’t fully understand is the detail to which the Department of Labour expects you to align to all guidelines. It requires due diligence in response to every stipulation – from the mandatory bi-annual assessments of the potential for exposure to the way you label the ACM. The obligation to supply clear, transparent information to employees and comprehensive, up-to-date training to those exposed to asbestos lies with the employer. This includes the provision of effective personal protective equipment, training, signage and the like.

Highlight From OHSA (Act 85 of 1993), Asbestos Regulations 2011
  • An assessment of potential exposure must be conducted at intervals not exceeded two years.
  • A written inventory of the location of asbestos in workplace, buildings, plant or premises must be made and maintained.
  • Written safe work procedures must be laid down and followed during maintenance, alterations, renovations, repairs and dismantling of buildings that contain asbestos cement sheeting and related products.
  • An Asbestos Plan of Work that has been approved by an Approved Asbestos Inspection. Authority must be followed during demolition, alteration, stripping, removing, repairing, gleaning or high-pressure water jetting of any structure containing asbestos lagging or insulation.
  • Only contractors that are registered with the department of labour may do any demolition work where asbestos containing material is present
  • Regulations are followed for the disposal of asbestos waste product.

What is asbestos, dangers of asbestos, asbestos training, asbestos awareness, asbestos removal, asbestos disposal, asbestos surveys, asbestos disposal, Ecotech Africa

Asbestos is the generic name for a number of naturally occurring silicate mineral fibres. Asbestos is a versatile product. Due to its ability to withstand heat, erosion and decay, and for its fire and water resistant properties, asbestos was widely used in building materials. Despite the use of all forms of asbestos being banned nationally, building materials containing asbestos are still prevalent in our community today. The most commonly found building materials that contain asbestos are asbestos cement products.

Asbestos has been mined in South Africa since 1930 and was a popular material used in over 3000 different products in the building and engineering industries over more than a century. Asbestos exposure resulted in many deaths as a result of diseases such as asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.

Although the use of asbestos in new work has been banned in South Africa since 2008, there are many asbestos containing materials (ACMs) that are still in use today.

Employees may unknowingly be exposed to asbestos during maintenance, decorating, renovating or even demolishing of redundant plant equipment and buildings.

Injudicious disturbance of asbestos may contaminate workplaces, which may present a serious health risk to employees, occupants or even members of the public.
