Well, you know what, every single high-rise in the Gold Coast built before 1990 has asbestos. And it’s usually in the bathrooms and the laundries.

No problem. That’s what we’re here for. 90% of asbestos removal in Surfers Paradise is asbestos bathrooms removal.

Coastal asbestos removal to the rescue!

Coastal asbestos removal to the rescue!
Asbestos contamination on a development site a case study.

Shopping local is at the very heart of what we are about all of our suppliers are within 40 min of our office, and 99% of our customers are within 20 km of our business this means that when you need a rapid response to an asbestos contamination you can count on us we are local, we are on the road all day.

Recently we got a call from a local developer who was drilling some holes for the foundations on an empty block. The block had recently had four houses removed so they could build a hi-rise on this site it is not uncommon for some asbestos debris to be in the soil after a multi demolition. You just never know what people have buried in their backyards over the years, and no amount of asbestos is safe in a workplace like this.

The developer had their site shut down by the unions because some suspected asbestos was found on site and the union rep onsite called stop work this was an asbestos emergency job now . Stopping work is the responsible thing to do here as none of the workers had undergone asbestos awareness training if they had of called us before they started onsite, we would have happily delivered this training for them.

Stopping a development site with a full crew of men and a couple of machines can be an expensive undertaking 30 minutes of asbestos awareness training for civil operators looks like a great investment.

The two priorities are.

Making the site safe.Getting the site going again.

Next Queensland Workplace Health and Safety had been called to the site, and everyone was on edge. Now our builder was caught between a rock and a hard place none of this was his fault. When we got the call, we were able to attend site within 60 minutes we met with the site supervisor, the Union rep and Queensland Workplace Health and Safety addressed their concerns. We formulated a plan firstly a site inspection to identify, and asbestos on the surface is marking all suspected asbestos with marking paint next removed all the asbestos pieces, had the site inspected and a clearance certificate issued, and work resumed.

From the initial phone call to the inspection getting a clean-up crew to site and gaining a clearance certificate, we were able to get the site up and running in under two hrs. Minimal production time was lost and some valuable time was salvaged on this project that day.

Asbestos In Baby Powder And The Safer Alternative.

Asbestos In Baby Powder And The Safer Alternative.

Talcum powder has been a staple in many homes around the world for many years its been used for everything from keeping babies comfy to being added to many cosmetics for both adults and children .

There has been a lot of news lately regarding asbestos and baby powder and asbestos and talc powder products . Just like asbestos talk is a naturally occuring mineral wikipedia describes is as

“Talc or talcum is a clay mineral composed of hydrated magnesium silicate” unfortunately these two minerals asbestos and talk can be found together in the ground and the cancer council of Australia has said recently

“According to the Cancer Council of Australia, in its natural form, some talc may contain asbestos, which is known to cause cancer. That’s because geologically,talc and asbestos can naturally form alongside each other. But not every talc deposit is contaminated with asbestos.”

So what is the risk and what types of cancer may be caused by asbestos. Here is a list of known cancers and diseases caused by asbestos .

  • Mesothelioma
  • Asbestosis
  • Lung Cancer
  • Laryngeal Cancer
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Testicular Cancer
  • Pleural plaques
  • Pleural thickening
  • Pleural effusion
  • Mesothelioma

Currently there is no cure for many of these types of cancer . So what are the alternatives ? Currently there is no research to suggest that cornstarch based powders pose any risk to your health . Experts recommend that you use all powders carefully and avoid inhaling any powder is best practice . because cornstarch powder is made from processes corn and not mixed with any minerals it cannot contain asbestos unless it is added on purpose, so we recommend choosing cornstarch powder that is 100% cornstarch powder .

Asbestos and Christmas

Asbestos and Christmas

Asbestos has played a big part in everyday life and Christmas is no exception . Asbestos in its purest form has similar characteristics visually to snow . There were so many asbestos products available for home use fake snow was readily available and often pure 100% asbestos .

Asbestos was not only used in homes a fake snow Hollywood used in movies Christmas movies like “Miracle on 34th Street” and Bing Crosby’s ” Holiday inn” . Asbestos was used in nearly all oil lantern wicks back in those days as well !
Luckily these days the risks of deadly asbestos are known and it is no longer used as fake snow and sold into homes aor used in movies.
Asbestos Rapid Response Encapsulation Service

Asbestos Rapid Response Encapsulation Service

Coastal Asbestos Rapid response encapsulation system for fire damaged buildings.

Asbestos was used extensively in the construction of homes and commercial buildings in Australia before its total ban in 1985. Asbestos was used because of versatility and flexibility in many building products including walls, roofing, flooring, ceilings and some electrical appliances and commercial equipment like fire doors and components in lifts and plant rooms.

Safe work, Australia classes asbestos as either “friable” or “nonfriable” and their description of friable asbestos, is

“Friable asbestos is a material containing asbestos that when dry, is in powder form or may be crushed or pulverized into powder form using your hand.”

When nonfriable asbestos becomes damaged in fires, it is deemed to be friable and friable asbestos represents a clear and present danger to surrounding residents. This risk of friable asbestos spreading into the neighboring homes and streets can be managed by encapsulating the debris with an encapsulation compound applied directly to the rubble. Giving the building owners enough time to organize safe demolition of the structures and keeping the community safe from deadly asbestos fibers.

The deployment of the rapid response encapsulation system can be as soon as the fire had been put out and can last for many weeks, keeping the community safe and meet with the responsibilities property owners have and be a crucial part of an asbestos management plan for commercial and residential buildings that have been affected by fires.
