Asbestos in the workplace is the number one cause of death from work-related illness in New Zealand. Protectus works with companies and public entities across the North Island to create safer and healthier workplaces, and protect workers on construction and demolition sites.
Do you have an Asbestos Management Plan?
If asbestos is present in your workplace, you have a legal obligation under the Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016 to protect employees and contractors from any risk it may cause. We can help you with your Asbestos Management Plan, by designing an innovative and comprehensive Asbestos Removal Control Plan, to ensure the safety of your workers, and your compliance with the law.

Independent asbestos testing in the workplace
If you’re concerned about the presence of asbestos in your commercial or industrial premises, talk to us before starting any construction or demolition work. We can sub-contract licensed asbestos assessors to carry out thorough asbestos testing. They will identify all sources of asbestos in your workplace, whilst minimising the risk of contamination. You can rely on these asbestos assessors for an honest, third-party appraisal, because they remain independent from Protectus. Sub-contracting this service for you ensures the process remains transparent and streamlined.
