What you can expect from ARNZ

We provide easy-to-understand expert advice.

We believe it is our public and professional duty to provide the best advice we can to our clients.

Worldwide, asbestos is seen as a serious issue, but there is great deal of relevant consumer information, case studies, and best practice advice that is missing from the New Zealand arena. We aim to fill this gap by providing the most up-to-date and easy-to-understand information to assist homeowners to make the best decisions for risk and handling of asbestos, without fear-mongering or bias.

We adhere to best practice health and safety

Your health and the health of our team is at the heart of everything we do. Our health and safety protocols exceed industry standards and current legal requirements. We feel confident we keep our staff and the public safe from harm.

Our protocols are trustworthy and measurable

Our testing and removal methodology is systematic, consistent and auditable. You can be certain that our services meet the strictest criteria for public health and safety and leave nothing to chance.

We only use trained labour teams.

We train our removal teams to adhere to our safety practices and systems, which exceed current industry standards.
All removalists are required by law to have a licenced COC … oversee a removal process to make sure safe protocol is in place. But we don’t feel this goes far enough to protect workers or the public. In our experience, using the right equipment, fitted correctly, and using the right methodology is not something that can be taught in a day to untrained rotating contractors.

Risk management

We take our role seriously. Our risk-management protocol provides peace of mind and effective governance if you have a rental property or are a commercial customer you can be certain that our health and safety protocol meet the new standards to come into play in April 2016.
