With Greenerway Asbestos Air Monitoring, breathe easy

Welcome to Greenway Asbestos Removal Sydney! We are a team of highly trained professionals dedicated to helping you ensure the safety and health of your employees and others in your workplace or facility.

Because asbestos is imperceptible, it isn’t easy to detect airborne asbestos without professional equipment – nor would you want to! It is essential to monitor the air quality to ensure that there is no airborne asbestos exposure before, during, and after asbestos removal. It is one of the services that our team does best, so you can confidently breathe in safe air.

What is Asbestos Air Monitoring?

A test for respirable asbestos fibres is conducted during asbestos work to assess asbestos exposure and control measures. Asbestos-containing products may release asbestos fibres into the air when they are in poor condition, or when asbestos-containing materials are removed. Asbestos is presumed to be present in all fibres exhibiting specific geometric characteristics under a phase contrast microscope. To confirm its chemical composition, it may be necessary to run transmission electron microscopy testing on the asbestos air monitoring in NSW.

How Do We Measure Asbestos In The Air?

Based on the size of the asbestos removal area, an area-specific volume of air is drawn in through a filtered pump. The filter will collect asbestos particles in the pump.

Asbestos fibres will be counted after the filter has been examined closely to determine if asbestos remains present and how much is respirable. A decision will be made regarding the treatment of the affected area once the test results have been received.

Experts can calculate the asbestos fibre concentration level by using an average fibre concentration level calculated from the air sample and multiplying it by the size of the contaminated area. More filtering must be applied to remove all traces of asbestos and airborne particles.

The area can be cleared and declared asbestos-free if there are no traces of asbestos in the sample.

Monitoring of asbestos-containing air

To assess and ensure the effectiveness of asbestos control measures, asbestos monitoring is performed to remove friable and non-friable asbestos-containing materials. Air monitoring may be performed during asbestos removal to detect asbestos fibres outside the asbestos removal or to check if the area is safe for reoccupation after asbestos removal.

We use counters and signatories approved by our NATA-accredited asbestos laboratory for air monitoring. A Greenerway consultant can also perform asbestos inspections. Analyzing air samples determines whether asbestos fibres are present.

Our Process

Whether you are located in Sydney or NSW, our asbestos air monitoring consultants can help you.

Background Monitoring

Two situations commonly require background air monitoring. When asbestos-containing materials are being worked on, air monitoring helps identify other fibres present in the materials. Asbestos-containing materials can also be assessed via background air monitoring if they are suspected of being damaged. Background air monitoring is generally performed with visual inspections of the subject area.

Exposure Monitoring

Repeated Asbestos air sampling of air quality will quantify what exposure an individual has to airborne asbestos. When asbestos is present in an occupational environment regularly, airborne fibres are sampled and measured. When the pumps are run in the background, they will provide a good reading without interfering with everyday activities. Furthermore, a filter holder can be attached to the worker’s clothing. Asbestos fibre exposure can be tallied using this method. The results are then compared to the national exposure standard to determine if the exposure levels are within acceptable limits.

Control Monitoring

To assess their effectiveness, monitoring of asbestos control measures during work on asbestos-containing materials is essential. The asbestos control monitoring method measures the level of asbestos fibres in the air at fixed locations, generally one metre above the floor level.

Containment measures are monitored during removal by control monitoring measures. The results are not recommended to be interpreted as indicative of occupational exposure. Unlike exposure monitoring, these results cannot be compared with the national exposure standard.

Clearance Monitoring

After asbestos-containing materials have been decontaminated and dried, clearance monitoring is conducted. The number of asbestos fibres per litre of air must be less than 0.01. Occupational hygienists rely heavily on clearance monitoring for clearance inspections and safe area declarations.

What is asbestos air monitoring Sydney?

Testing for asbestos fibres in the air (asbestos air monitoring) is used to detect asbestos fibre levels. During a predetermined period, the air is drawn through a filter. Our qualified asbestos analysts collect and prepare airborne particles for examination.

Benefits of asbestos air monitoring

Air monitors are used to detect asbestos fibres in the atmosphere. To ensure that asbestos levels are within safe limits, this test is often performed in buildings and work areas to determine the level of asbestos exposure. Air monitoring for asbestos has several advantages:

1. Helps identify potential health risks to workers and others in the area.
2. Allows for early detection of asbestos fibres in the air, allowing for timely remediation.
3. Helps ensure compliance with occupational health and safety regulations
4. Provides data for risk assessments and exposure evaluations
5. It can help prevent costly and time-consuming cleanup efforts
6. This may lead to reduced insurance premiums for businesses and organizations.

What are the dangers of airborne asbestos particles?

Asbestos causes serious respiratory illnesses, including:


a chronic lung disease that causes scarring of the lungs and difficulty breathing


a rare and aggressive cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, abdomen, or heart

Lung cancer

asbestos fibres can cause changes in the cells of the lungs, leading to cancer

Other respiratory problems

such as chronic bronchitis, difficulty breathing, and coughing
