Asbestos Sampling And Testing

Due to health risks associated with asbestos it is essential that exposure is effectively managed.

Working on or near damaged asbestos containing materials (ACM) without appropriate control measures in place increase the risk of exposure to airbourne asbestos fibres.


It is often difficult to identify the presence of asbestos material by sight and sampling of suspect material containing asbestos is in itself hazardous and should be carried out by a competent person and analysed in accredited laboratories.


If you believe or suspect that there is a risk of asbestos-containing material at your site then seek professional advice. Our experienced, approachable team is always on hand to answer your questions, and guide you through your obligations.


ARSNSW provides a sampling service conducted under controlled conditions outlined under the guidelines of NOHSC:2002(2005) we assist project/site managers, trades and private dwelling owners under their duty of care protocols.


We are associated with reputable accredited occupational hygienists and consultants for asbestos site register, remedial, environmental, monitoring and reports.
