It's National Asbestos Awareness Month

It’s November and it’s National Asbestos Awareness Month. With one of the highest rates of asbestos-related diseases in the world, the Asbestos Awareness Month aims to educate Australian homeowners and tradespeople the dangers of asbestos in and around the home, especially when undertaking renovation or maintenance jobs and how to best manage it. 
 

Asbestos was an extremely common material used in buildings before the mid-1980. At least a third of brick, weatherboard, fibro and clad homes and apartments will have asbestos present.  Asbestos can be found all around the home including under floor covering such as carpet, in walls, ceiling, eaves, garages, fences, outdoor toilets, ventilators and more. That being said, asbestos only becomes a health risk when asbestos fibres are disturbed usually during renovations, released into the air and breathed in.

Measurements Using The NBM-550 As A Controller For NBM-520 & Any RF Probe

It is useful to use the NBM-550 as a controller for the NBM-520 in areas that are difficult to reach. The NBM-520 can act as an extended probe handle in such situations.

The NBM-520 in Controller mode captures the measurement values. The measurement result is transferred to the NBM-550. All measurement functions of the NBM-550 except “Measure with correction frequency” can be used. More information is found in section 8.4 of the NBM-550 operating manual and in section 4.12 of the NBM-520 operating manual.

The Importance of Bump Testing & Calibrating Your Gas Detectors

The Importance of Bump Testing & Calibrating Your Gas Detectors 

Gas detectors play a critical role in ensuring the safety of workers and personnel on site. When used, calibrated and maintained in accordance to manufacturer’s instructions, gas detectors are extremely effective and reliable in alerting workers and personnel of potentially dangerous environments however gas detectors alone are not enough to keep you and your team safe. Workers continue to lose their lives from exposure to toxic or explosive gases. Why is this so?

Working In Hot Environment Guidance Materials

With summer just around the corner, have you reviewed and updated your heat stress program and policy?

There are currently no legislations that indicate the maximum temperatures employees may be exposed to in the workplace however Australian employers do have a duty of care to provide, maintain and ensure that so far as reasonably practical, a safe working environment for employees and that all employers are to take practical steps to minimise the risk of heat hazards in the workplace environment.

Working in intense heat regardless of whether you are indoor or outdoor, can increase normal body temperatures and lead to a range of symptoms from discomfort to life threatening scenarios.

New At Air-Met | The ORION Smart Vibration Monitoring Terminal

Now Available At Air-Met Scientific

The new and rugged 01dB ORION Smart Vibration Monitoring Terminal monitors all vibrations created by human activity. 

In recent years, the issue of monitoring noise and vibrations has been increasing levels of attention in a variety of fields, from construction sites to urban settings, quarries to the industrial sector. Such sites generate noise and vibrations liable to have an impact on the health of workers, the peace and quiet enjoyed by nearby residents, and the physical integrity of buildings and architectural structures. It is therefore essential to implement monitoring solutions so as to prevent these risks.

Small Business Instant Instrumentation Asset Tax Write-Off Scheme

The Immediate Equipment and Instrumentation Asset Tax Write Off Scheme is Still On!

Claim an Immediate Tax Deductions on Assets Costing Less than $20,000

When did the instant asset write-off scheme commence?
The law commenced 7.30pm AEST 12 May 2015 and will cease on 30 June 2017. 
As announced in the 2016-2017 budget, the scheme has not been extended and will still be due to end June 30, 2017.
 
Who Is Eligible?
Any business that meets the definition of a small business entity, i.e. one with an aggregated turnover less than $2 million, may be eligible to claim an immediate deduction for the cost of depreciating assets acquired for less than $20,000.
 
From July 1 2016, the federal government will extend its $20,000 instant asset write-off scheme to business to businesses turning over up to $10 million however the scheme has not been extended and will still be due to end June 30, 2017. 
 
What Does This Mean?
This means that a small business will be able to claim an immediate deduction for the cost of each and every depreciating asset that they purchase for less than $20,000. 

For example, Pamela bought a second hand skid steer loader for $17,000 on 28 May 2015 which is used solely in her landscaping business. As the depreciating asset cost less than $20,000, Pamela will be able to claim an immediate deduction for this asset.
 
What Does It Apply To?
It should be noted that the measure applies to BOTH new and second hand assets. 

It also applies on a per asset basis, so several assets each costing up to $20,000 would qualify for the write-off if installed ready for use before 30 June 2017.
 
What About Assets Over $20,000? Assets valued at $20,000 or more (which cannot be immediately deducted) can continue to be placed in the small business simplified depreciation pool and depreciated at 15% in the first income year and 30% each income year thereafter. The pool can also be immediately deducted if the balance is less than $20,000 over this period (including existing pools).

Draft Overview Of The Black Lung Disease Interim Findings

More Cases of Black Lung Disease Emerge Among Queensland Coal Workers

It was first thought that black lung disease had been eradicated in Australia, however if you’ve been following the mining news lately, coal workers’ pneumoconiosis (CWP) or “Black Lung Disease” may not be a thing of the past with eight Queensland coal miners being diagnosed with the disease since late 2015, the first case in nearly 60 years. 


Percy Verrall, First Victim Of Black Lung In AustraliaBlack Lung Disease is a preventable occupational, man-made disease of the lung. The disease is caused by the inhalation of dust particles or chemical irritants usually over a prolonged period of time. These dust particles or irritants accumulated in parts of the lung causes inflammation and scarring and eventually resulting in irreversible lung damage.

Maximise Low Flow Sampling Efficiency with Geotech Bladder Pumps

Low flow sampling in the field requires time and expertise. So don't rush it and take your time!

To maximise low flow sampling efficiency in the field, many parameters must be met in order to produce the best outcome. Your pumping system for example must minimise drawdown and turbidity.

Well parameters need to be monitored for stabilisation and the sampling flow rate must be adjusted accordingly in order to achieve the best possible sample catch rate. Additionally, not all wells share the same characteristics and sites do vary considerably. Having the right tools available to your team will make a significant difference in your low flow sampling efficiency.

Important Information About VOC's In Melbourne's Sewer Network

In 2014, Melbourne Water undertook research into hazardous atmospheres in sewers and has identified the presence of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) in Melbourne’s sewer network. As a result, most Victorian water authorities including Melbourne Water, Yarra Valley and South East Water now require that anyone coming into contact with sewer headspace gas to have in addition to their traditional four gas sensors, a VOC sensor and an ammonia sensor as part of their gas detection equipment.
