Lucion resourced the project with x3 CAT B Trained Plant operators to utilise a 360 & dumper and x1 CAT B trained Banksman / Supervisor (dual trained for asbestos air monitoring) for the duration of the project.
The site area was marked out and ground investigations started with breaking open concrete and land excavation. Once the excavation and transportation of the soil into a stockpile was completed, 60 soils samples were taken at various locations and depths for analysis to confirm the presence and quantification of asbestos by volume to determine the classification of the arisings (hazardous or non-hazardous waste). 4 waste acceptance criteria (WAC) samples were also taken from soils within and adjacent to the contaminated areas to confirm what contaminants the soil will produce when wet for compliance with waste disposal requirements.
The results of the analysis confirmed extensive contamination of asbestos in the soil and instruction for disposal at a licensed landfill was provided by the client. We removed all hazardous waste from the site as per the instruction and consignment notes were obtained for all shipments for compliance with HSG guidance.
