New technology tool to help in asbestos battle

By

An Australian company has developed what it claims is a pioneering technology platform to help achieve the federal government’s agenda to rid the country of asbestos by 2030.  

The company – Octfolio – has just launched its new Asbestos Information Management Software and website - www.octfolio.com – which it says is designed to aid in the battle to save lives against deadly asbestos exposure and estimated to save millions of dollars for asbestos stakeholders.

“Ultimately it's all about an easier and efficient way to track, assess, remove and dispose of asbestos with a goal to saving lives, so we've created the Octfolio system to play a pivotal role in helping the Government achieve that outcome for future generations,” says Darren Anderson, Managing Director for the Octfolio company.

“Octfolio has developed the first and only fully integrated tool that will map, classify, quantify and enable the strategic cost effective removal of asbestos from workplaces and homes.

This technology offers everything from online training for asbestos assessors and removalists, and sharing medical research information, to encouraging safe storage and disposal at licensed facilities and even mechanisms for reporting illegal disposal sites.

“Plus there are many more community benefits including accessibility of the project data in situations such as natural disasters and recovery operations, and providing a way for the government and private sector to better inform the public in relation to asbestos and its safe removal.”

Mark Kay, Chief Technology Adviser Octfolio, said the new software's launch was timely following the Australian Government's establishment on 1 July of the Australian Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency (ASEA).

“The Octofolio project aims to provide a comprehensive solution for the ASEA to coordinate activities across all tiers of government, affecting multiple portfolios such as health, safety, environment and education.

Kay said the software and its web portal could keep all asbestos stakeholders in line with the Agency's agenda, the vast array of legal obligations, and allow them to manage all the compliance regulations with a few simple clicks of a button.

“Building owners and managers can save significant time and resources by eliminating the need to undertake costly annual reviews of asbestos registers and lengthy asbestos inspection programs.

“We estimate stakeholder overheads will decrease significantly and literally save them millions of dollars in operational costs.

“Essentially Octfolio works by creating a centrally operated database that unites all asbestos stakeholders from site assessors and removal workers to building owners and government agencies, recording their information in a micro format that then provides the big picture of what's happening everywhere in the country in relation to asbestos contaminated sites and buildings, removal, disposal and storage.”
