Manage asbestos with the expertise of IPM Consulting

IN recognition of Asbestos Awareness Month, IPM Consulting Services is helping raise awareness in the community.

With more than 25 years of experience, IPM are leaders in asbestos risk management, occupational hygiene, work health and safety, and training.

Whilst November is Asbestos Awareness Month, IPM is always keen to further educate the public about the presence of asbestos in the workplace and in residential settings.

IPM offer asbestos awareness training that educates Tasmanians about safely identifying and managing asbestos – containing material.

“During the pandemic more Tasmanians were renovating, and we found that many people living in the community had limited knowledge of where asbestos- containing materials are located and the potential health concerns of the material,” IPM Principal Occupational Hygienist Richard Jackson said.

“At IPM we run an onsite NATA-accredited laboratory which provides identification of asbestos-containing materials as well as offering specialised training around how to manage asbestos- containing materials in the workplace and in the home.”

Mr Jackson said any home or workspace built before the 1990s has the potential to contain asbestos, especially those built between the 1950s and 1980s.

“Whether it be a switchboard panel, a wall lining in a bathroom, eaves or vinyl flooring, asbestos materials can be present anywhere,” Mr Jackson said.

“On top of monitoring for asbestos-containing materials, IPM offers monitoring of silica, noise, mould and indoor air quality.

“Our team of occupational hygienists are able to go into any industry or home to identify hazards and provide a thorough risk assessment and recommend practical, effective controls that will ensure workers and members of the community are not being exposed and getting sick.”
