Asbestos Soil Testing

Accurate and compliant soil surveying

Awareness of the risks posed by asbestos-contaminated land and soils is growing, and with the New Zealand asbestos in soil guidelines due for release this year, Fibresafe NZ can offer a range of services. Conducted under all relevant health and safety asbestos and contaminated land legislation, we apply an internationally recognised tiered approach to asbestos in soil investigations, ranging from visual assessments and surface grab sampling, to preliminary and detailed site investigations, consultancy services evaluating remediation approaches and clearances following removal activities.

We can offer:

  • Preliminary Site Investigations (PSI)
  • Surface Soil Sampling
  • Test Pit Excavation
  • Detailed Site Investigations (DSI)
  • Remediation Consulting
  • Clearances
  • Site Management Plans


Soil removal can be costly

Excavating and disposing of soil as asbestos contaminated waste is an expensive solution. Make sure you know the facts and options so you can make an informed decision about the removal or remediation of asbestos contaminated soil.

Safe, accurate testing

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.

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.
