NOTES ON ASBESTOS BAG USE: (As regulations vary between countries, states, and local requirments, these notes are for guidance only and should only be considered in conjunction with the appropriate regulations and guidance in the local area.)

  • Controlled wetting of the waste should be employed to reduce asbestos dust emissions during bag sealing or any subsequent rupture of a bag
  • Only unused bags should be used, and bags marked for asbestos waste should not be used for any other purpose
  • Hard and sharp asbestos waste requires preliminary sealing or a protective covering before it is placed in the waste bags, to minimise the risk of damage to the bags
  • In order to further minimise the risk of a bag’s tearing or splitting, and also to assist in manual handling, asbestos waste bags should not be filled more than half full and excess air should be gently evacuated from the waste bag, in a manner that does not cause the release of dust
  • The bags should then be twisted tightly, folded over and the neck secured in the folded position with adhesive tape or any other effective method
  • The external surface of each bag should be cleaned to remove any adhering dust before the bag is removed from the asbestos work area
  • All asbestos waste should be double bagged outside the work area immediately following the decontamination process
  • A maximum weight of 25kg in any bag is recommended

As with all plastic films care should be taken with bags as they can be a trip and suffocation hazard. Bags are not flammable
