20 August 2019 - Sydney

How to best rid NSW of the scourge of asbestos and its contaminated materials is a key theme of this seminar.  Doing it efficiently, safely and cost effectively seem reasonable goals, but there are many obstacles in the way.  Other key themes include:

  • Navigating the recent regulatory changes on asbestos waste management
  • Linking WHS, Contaminated Land, Site Management and Occupational Hygiene
  • Identification of asbestos stocks and flows of asbestos materials, where does it go?
  • Solutions for managing contaminated stockpiles - EPA accepted screening processes and practices
  • Consider cost effective approaches to asbestos remediation
  • Impact of new NSW laws on asbestos waste management
  • Investigate impacts of asbestos on recycled materials and disposal methods

Speakers represent a broad cross section of disciplines, which have a role to play in asbestos management, along with the main regulators to provide a holistic view of asbestos management in NSW. The seminar will also discuss emerging issues with the management of asbestos waste and asbestos containing materials including:

  • Asbestos waste issues – definitions, enforcement, available disposal services and transport and costs
  • Legal impacts of the new POEO Act and Waste Regulations amendments on asbestos
  • Management of ACM and asbestos impacted contaminated soils with under contaminated site requirements
  • Recent court case impacting on liabilities in finding asbestos in reused soils
  • Leaving asbestos on a contaminated site - capping and clean up requirements
  • Definitions of what constitutes asbestos free material especially for recycled materials
  • Current and proposed planning requirements for asbestos site remediation
  • How much asbestos materials are left in building stock and when should it be removed?

With the combination of the various disciples, rule makers and other concerns, this seminar seeks to improve NSW’s approach to asbestos management.
