ALGA is writing to invite your comment on The New Zealand Guidelines for Assessing and Managing Asbestos in Soil Guidelines.

Asbestos is a health hazard driven by fibres in the air. The New Zealand Guidelines for Assessing and Managing Asbestos in Soil (the guidelines) takes New Zealand industry step by step through the process of identifying, assessing and managing asbestos in soil. The guidelines provide a practical approach for industry practitioners (consultants, contractors and regulators) that is specific to New Zealand – our soils, climate, lifestyle, history and regulations.

The ALGA Asbestos Interest Group has a working group tasked with reviewing the NZ GAMAS originally published by BRANZ.  To help us do this, we would appreciate your input on the current document.
