WHY USE ANALYTIX?
On the 4th April 2016, new regulations pertaining to asbestos were implemented under the ‘Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016’.
As part of these regulations, there is now an implicit duty under Regulation 11 – ‘Duty to Analyse Samples’ – to use only an accredited laboratory to undertake asbestos sample testing. The above regulation states:
- A PCBU with management or control of a workplace may identify asbestos or ACM by arranging for a sample of material at the workplace to be analysed for the presence of asbestos or ACM.
- If a PCBU with management or control of a workplace arranges for an analysis, the PCBU must ensure that the sample is analysed by an accredited laboratory.
Analytix Ltd is accredited by IANZ to NZS ISO/IEC 17025 – giving our clients assurance that the results received are delivered in a reliable, accurate and competent manner. Accreditation delivers confidence in certificates and conformity statements. It underpins the quality of results by ensuring their traceability, comparability, validity and commutability.
Analytix guarantees all bulk samples received will be analysed in 48 hours or less from receipt (excluding soils). In most cases we deliver results in less than 24 hours.
Analytix can supply pre-paid postage bags (next day by noon delivery) for our national clients at no extra charge – instantly saving costs. Analytix also supplies pre-loaded air monitoring cowls for filter analysis at no additional cost.
In addition to being an accredited laboratory, Analytix only employs fully qualified asbestos laboratory analysts, holding as a minimum the BOHS P401 – Identification of Asbestos in Bulk Samples by PLM qualification. Our comprehensive procedures ensure you have total peace of mind that all asbestos within your submitted samples will be identified correctly – first time, every time! Our ability to identify all six regulated fibre types ensures that all issued results are clear, precise, and value for money
