Basic Asbestos DIY Sampling Kit with IANZ Laboratory testing
Regular price $89.00
COVID-19 Update. Due to the government Level 4 response to the Coronavirus threat, our lab is closed to non-essential services and is therefore unable to analyse asbestos samples until further notice. We are able to process samples for essential services. Any samples submitted to us will be held and analysed when possible, or samples holders can request they be returned. Sampling kits are still available for purchase but please be aware of probable delays in having samples analysed. Thank You for your understanding.
Asbestos Do It Yourself Sampling Kit - Basic Kit with testing from an IANZ accredited laboratory.
Are you planning on refurbishing your building? If so, do you know whether the building materials contain asbestos?
The Safe Sampling Solutions asbestos sampling kit allows you to safely sample building material which you are planning on disturbing/removing or you have concerns over (e.g. a badly damaged ceiling). Samples are sent to an IANZ accredited laboratory for analysis, which typically takes 2-3 working days from sample receipt.
Safe Sampling Solutions Basic Test Kit includes the following:
- Lab analysis for one sample, with the option to add additional samples;
- Instruction manual and link to instructional video ;
- Sample bags;
- Pre-paid courier bag with Chain of Custody forms for sending your samples to the lab; and
- Support from qualified environmental specialists
In addition you will need the following to safely take a sample:
- Needle nose pliers;
- Small paint brush;
- Sealant or glue;
- Water spray bottle; and
- PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
Safe Sampling Solutions was developed by a group of people who work in the industry for assessing risks to human health. The idea was developed to allow an easy, cost effective and accurate way for members of the public to safely gain more information on hazardous materials within their home or building which may pose a risk to their or their family's health.
Note: This product is intended for the DIYer who is planning a job for the future or has uncovered building material they are unsure about. For workplaces or PCBU’s (person contracted to undertake paid work in a residential dwelling), asbestos samples are required by the Health and Safety at Work Regulations (Asbestos) 2016 to be taken by a competent person. The Worksafe Good Practice Guidelines for conducting Asbestos Surveys indicates that “People identifying asbestos should have the knowledge and skills to identify or assume the presence of asbestos through training, qualifications and experience.” PCBUs should only use these kits where an unexpected suspicious material has been identified and a qualified asbestos assessor is not available at short notice.
