How to get asbestos tested?

Asbestos testing & asbestos identification is performed by a specialist environmental health & safety consultancy. If you suspect that you have come into contact with asbestos at work, then you need to immediately contact your company’s asbestos hygienist. Homeowners can contact a specialist company directly for advice.

When is asbestos testing required?

Asbestos testing & asbestos identification is required whenever you suspect that asbestos is within the environment. This often happens during renovations of older buildings, as asbestos can be found in cladding, wall linings, roofs, drains, pipes and gutters. Contact your company’s asbestos hygienist or a specialist testing company immediately.  

Who can test for asbestos?

Asbestos testing & asbestos identification is performed by specialist environmental health & safety consultants. An asbestos hygienist takes samples of the suspicious materials for testing and removes the materials if the test is positive. Home owners can contact these companies directly to ask for advice and engage their services.
