Asbestos in soil work “asbestos soil testing” is conducted by Fibresafe NZ’s internationally trained and experienced environmental scientists. We can provide Asbestos in Soil Preliminary and Detailed Site Investigations (PSI & DSI), advise and oversee removal and remediation projects, and validate sites at the completion of remediation activities.

When you engage Fibresafe NZ, you get the services of a highly professional team committed to working in your best interests. Our soil investigations are conducted by our environmental science team, utilising suitably qualified and experienced staff at every stage of the process.

In accordance with BRANZ guidelines

BRANZ guidelines prescribe a best practice methodology for identifying, assessing and managing asbestos in soils, specific to New Zealand – our soils, climate, lifestyle, history and regulations. Guidelines have been established in collaboration with the Ministry for the Environment and The Australasian Land & Groundwater Association (ALGA); the peak body for contaminated land practitioners operating in Australasia.
