Hao Da is an MOM Approved Asbestos Removal Contractor (AARC), offering comprehensive asbestos survey, management, and removal services. We are also an NEA-licensed asbestos waste disposal contractor, so you may be certain that any asbestos waste will be properly disposed of.
Our competent person will inspect your site and conduct a thorough check to identify all suspected ACMs within the premises. You can trust our experienced team to find out if that suspicious roof panel does in fact contain asbestos, and to advise you on what you can or should do if it does.
Asbestos is a naturally-occurring fibrous mineral with excellent physical properties – it was extremely durable, corrosion and chemical resistant, fire retardant, and served as excellent insulation material. Due to these properties, it was called the “magic mineral”, and was a popular material of choice building in products such as roofing shingles, floor tiles, ceiling materials, cement products and electrical insulation. It was later confirmed that prolonged exposure to asbestos fibres can cause mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer.
Although the use of asbestos in buildings has since been banned, asbestos can still be found today in old buildings and structures such as roof sheets, ceiling boards, insulation boards, wall partitions and claddings, pipe insulations and gaskets. As such, under the Workplace Safety and Health (Asbestos) Regulations, a competent person must be appointed to ascertain and document if asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are present before:
Asbestos removal works must be carried out by an MOM Approved Asbestos Removal Contractor (AARC) (https://www.mom.gov.sg/workplace-safety-and-health/wsh-service-providers/find- approved-service-providers/find-asbestos-removal-contractor#/), and the asbestos waste produced must be disposed of by NEA approved asbestos disposal contractors (https://www.nea.gov.sg/our- services/pollution-control/hazardous-waste/asbestos-control).
