Asbestos Removal

ASBESTOS ROOF REMOVAL AND DISPOSAL

Objectives:

  1.  Replace asbestos roofs with new metal roofs or tiled roofs.
  2.  Remove asbestos roofs to facilitate demolition of buildings.

Prolonged exposure to any type of asbestos has proven to increase the risk of lung cancer, mesothelioma and non-malignant lung and pleural disorders including asbestosis and pleural plaques.

As such, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) and the National Environment Agency (NEA) has instituted strict guidelines under the Workplace Safety and Health Act (WSH) on the removal and disposal of asbestos related materials including asbestos roofs which are commonly found in the older buildings including houses that are built between 1940s and 1980s.

 

Failure to comply with WSH (Asbestos) Regulations on removal and disposal of any types of asbestos will result in an immediate stop works order from MOM and offending stake holders will also incur a penalty not exceeding $10,000 for the first offence and a fine not exceeding $20,000 or maximum of 6 months imprisonment for the second offence onwards.

As such, engaging a competent asbestos removal contractor in Singapore is imperative for your project, the health of both occupants and workers concerned and also to be in compliance with the authorities.

 

Over the years, MVM Roofing Pte Ltd has been accepted by the MOM as a competent asbestos contractor and has proven to be a reliable roofing contractor for the removal of asbestos related roofing materials.

For projects where asbestos roofs are to be replaced with new metal or tiled roofs, MVM has the expertise to carry out both the works thereby minimizing the problems of coordinating between two different contractors, one for asbestos removal and another for installing the new roofs.
