HAZARDOUS MATERIALS MANAGEMENT

_

Drawing on the wealth of experience and knowledge of our Hazmat team, JMB Environmental Consulting Pty Ltd continues to drive risk management and standardisation within the industry, while helping our strong client base  to implement strategies so they can mitigate risks,  meet compliance requirements and provide reasonably practicable and cost effective solutions to managing asbestos and hazardous materials within their properties or assets.

 

Our services in this sector are extensive.  We assist at all stages of hazmat management, from identification and survey development,  through to risk and project management of remediation works.

 

Under work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation the person in control of a business or undertaking (PCBU) has an obligation to assess the potential risks and develop a hazardous materials register for building compliance.

 

Additionally any hazardous materials found on site must be managed, labelled and stored correctly, and if applicable have up to date Saftey Data Sheets (SDS) available.

 

Our range of services within the Hazmat Industry can assist with this, and include but are not limited to:

 

  • Asbestos and Hazardous Materials Surveys and Registers
  • Management of Asbestos and Hazardous Materials Remedial Work
  • Portfolio Risk and Compliance Management
  • NATA Accredited Airborne Fibre Monitoring
  • Asbestos and Lead Clearance Inspections
  • Site Supervision and Air Sampling Pump Runs
  • Flammable Cladding Assessments and Sampling

MOBILE REPORT DELIVERY

_

JMB Environmental Consulting Pty Ltd works in partnership with Docsies to manage our the delivery of our Hazardous Materials Management.

 

We needed a technology that will allow us to be truly mobile.

 

Docsies is that product.  It is a streamlined cloud computing suite allowing simple and intuitive data capture in the field through to effective online reporting.

 

Through a suite of job specific applications, Docsies helps us capture standardised and reliable data in the field, and uses QR and barcode technology to simplify air monitoring, clearances and surveys and inspections.

 

It has scaled with our organisation, and allows JMB team members to collaborate on, and hand over seamlessly at any point in a project.  Through Docsies we issue reports in real time, and with mobile preview and sign-off technology we can run our clients  through reports and then issue before leaving site.

 

Our partnership has also allowed our Clients to easily track their portfolio risks, and manage their reports via the Docsies intuitive web based portal. Clients can even see the progression of their projects live.

 

No more site notes, no more emailing information between consultants, no more forms – we couldn’t be without it.
