Response To Contamination From Fire Damaged Asbestos Materials – A Structured Approach

In the unfortunate event of fire in a property containing asbestos it is essential to undertake a measured and structured response to ensure the safety of all involved as well as the wider public.

Depending on the scale of the fire there may be considerable potential for asbestos to be spread well beyond the building involved, usually in a friable form.

This risk of contamination spreading on a very large scale means that numerous State and Local agencies will be required to be involved as the concern for the safety and wellbeing of the general community becomes the priority.

Having a robust response and management process is essential. This whitepaper outlines an example of the process we promote at QED to minimise risk and ensure the safety of those that fall within the contaminated area.
