Asbestos Testing Services

Fitz Scientific now provide identification of asbestos in bulk and soil samples, in accordance with HSG248 Asbestos – The Analyst’s Guide. Our technicians are qualified to P401 – British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS). Asbestos in soil samples is a current testing requirement of some WAC testing.

Asbestos was commonly used in Ireland up to 1999 mainly as a building material, in insulation and fireproofing, and in some consumer goods. As a result, it is likely that there are still significant volumes of this waste in the environment. All types of asbestos cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, cancer of the larynx and ovary, and asbestosis (fibrosis of the lungs). Asbestos waste is hazardous and must be identified and disposed of properly when undertaking any demolition work.
