ADE has a large team of highly experienced licensed asbestos assessors (LAA) and hazardous materials consultants based in Sydney, Newcastle and Melbourne, giving us the scope we need to undertake hazardous materials surveys and investigations throughout Australia.

We are passionate about providing the right outcomes for our clients, and also for supporting safe and sustainable communities. To achieve these dual aims, we deploy assessors with a strong background in Occupational Hygiene, who will provide tailored support in pursuit of your objectives. Our asbestos surveys and reports ensure compliance with the New South Wales asbestos register and integrate with your business’ current procedures and protocols.

ADE’s own in-house NATA accredited laboratory (Sydney Laboratory Services) allows for rapid response and fast reporting turnaround time. In special cases, ADE can provide your Asbestos Survey Report the following working day, if required.
