On-site, Real-Time Screening for ACMs Using a Handheld NIR Analyser
To protect worker health and the environment, before any building renovation or demolition property developers, contractors, and construction companies must identified and properly abate any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). This seminar examines worldwide asbestos regulations, traditional ACM testing methodologies, and the newer technology of handheld near-infrared (NIR) analysers. It considers the science behind ACM screening methods and evaluates the benefits, limits, and best practices for portable, on-site asbestos screening using NIR.
