Asbestos hygiene and air monitoring
During the removal of asbestos or when renovations are underway, it is important that the area is kept safe and free from asbestos fibres. The most reliable way to make sure this happens is to monitor the air that surrounds the removal area.
Air monitoring is the process by which the air is checked for the presence of airborne asbestos fibres. It is usually used for a number of purposes.
- ACM has been disturbed/damaged at a workplace and air monitoring is conducted to ensure that the airborne fibre concentration of asbestos fibres is below the acceptable level.
- During asbestos removal works, it is used to ensure that the control measures implemented to control the removal are working adequately and people are not being exposed to airborne fibres as a result of the removal works.
- After the removal works are complete, clearance air monitoring is conducted within the removal zone. This is to ensure that the area where the removal has been conducted does not have airborne concentrations of asbestos fibres and the area can be safely re-occupied by unprotected persons after the removal works have finished.
The process for air monitoring, is using a small air flow pump that will collect a set quantity of air by running it through a filter. This filter catches any airborne particles on it and is then mounted to a glass slide and examined under a microscope to determine whether the air quality is safe for breathing.
Should you have concerns around the presence of airborne asbestos fibres in your property, ACA can conduct background air quality monitoring in your premises to identify if you have any risk.
Air monitoring may be a legal requirement during your asbestos removal works, depending on the ACNM being removed and the controls required. ACA can provide air monitoring and hygiene services during asbestos removal works. Our team of experts will ensure that removal is undertaken to the highest standard, all control measures are implemented adequately and that the Asbestos Removal Contractor complies with the regulations whilst on site.

Clearance Inspections and Certification
You may be required to have a visual clearance inspection and clearance certificate issued post asbestos removal works, this will be dependent on the type and/or quantity of ACM being removed. ACA can conduct a visual clearance inspection of your removal zone post the completion of asbestos removal works, ensure that the removal zone is completely free from any residual asbestos and provide you with the clearance certificate to allow your staff to re-occupy these areas.
