6 October 2016 - Sydney

This seminar’s aim is to:

  • Identify efficient management of asbestos waste and ACM
  • Promote efficient removal from human exposure routes to maximising health outcomes and minimising costs.

Areas under WHS, contaminated sites and waste regulation governing ACM handling and asbestos waste have roles to play. Confusion and issues with the technical assessment and handling of asbestos materials and wastes can cause inefficiencies, delays, poor handling, all of which can lead to increased exposure leading to higher health risks.  The conference will also discuss emerging issues with the management of asbestos waste and asbestos containing materials and will attempt to answer the following questions:

  • When does Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) become asbestos waste
  • How are ACM contaminated soils dealt with under contaminated site requirements
  • What levels of ACM are permitted to be left on site in soils
  • To what extend can you source separate asbestos from other materials e.g. soils on-site
  • What is an asbestos free material and or an asbestos free waste
  • Measurement of asbestos – what triggers lead to an analytical tests
  • Does having no scientific contaminate level for asbestos waste cause issues
  • Recycled wastes and asbestos contamination – what is an acceptable screening methodology
  • How to help communities understand that good asbestos management will minimise risks
  • Sydney has limited and a reducing number of landfills which accept asbestos waste – will this become an issue
