Fully licensed to remove asbestos

As a Class A asbestos removal license holder, Civil Fire can remove and dispose of asbestos safely and legally. Although they may look like other doors, asbestos doors pose a health risk when the internal core is exposed, or the door is damaged or friable (crumbling).

By law, asbestos doors cannot be repaired due to the risk of releasing asbestos fibres into the air. Therefore, defective asbestos doors must be replaced.

Measuring the door and frame

The size of fire doors varies, therefore each door and frame needs to be individually measured before replacement.

Notifying SafeWork NSW

SafeWork NSW must be notified five days before any asbestos removal work commences.

Air Monitoring

Air monitoring is mandatory for all friable asbestos removal. This involves sampling the air for airborne asbestos fibres and must be conducted by an independent licensed asbestos assessor.

Clearance Inspection

Once the asbestos has been removed from the site, the air monitors undergo laboratory analysis. Providing the asbestos-fibre count is at a safe level, a Clearance Certificate will be issued by the independent monitoring company stating the area is safe to inhabit.

Removal & Disposal of Asbestos

Controls are implemented to eliminate and guard against the risks of asbestos. Civil Fire’s Safe Work Method for this work has been reviewed and approved by SafeWork NSW. It is not uncommon for SafeWork NSW to make an unannounced site visit to ensure all controls are in place.
