  QUESTION: Starting a business as a ceiling dust removalist, 13 Feb 2006, New South Wales Australia

I am interested in starting a business as a ceiling dust removalist and would appreciate your help and advice. Could I also be included in your referral list of contractors? Your advice on the type of suitable extraction machines would also be appreciated. I am in the central west of NSW. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
ANSWER: 13 Feb 2006

Dear Lloyd,
in the absence of a state government run licencing system for ceiling dust removalists, my organisation, The LEAD Group has mentored the development of the Australian Dust Removalists Association (ADRA) and its Code of Practice so that the info service that we run [Global Lead Advice & Support Service (GLASS) - incorporating the Lead Advisory Service Australia, can then refer people to contractors that we know are following the ADRA Code of Practice. So the best thing you could do is read the Code of Practice - at - and fulfil all its obligations and then apply to join ADRA. You need to apply to ADRA. EMAIL: Many of the members of ADRA have purchased their truck-mounted HEPA vac machines from
Safe-T-Vac Australia,  manufacture and distribute commercial and industrial vacuum systems. From portable backpack and tugalong vacuums to heavy duty truck and trailer mounted vacuum systems which can remove hazardous dusts such as asbestos and lead dust. HEPA filters. Custom designed mobile and stationary industrial solutions. You can contact them on Address: PO Box 2361, Taren Point, NSW 2229. Phone: 02 9531 2475; FAX: 02 9531 2477 EMAIL: Buying Enquiry; Request Quote

Yours Sincerely Elizabeth O'Brien
