What we do
Meth/p in Housing
Meth is an extremely addictive drug that has become widely used in New Zealand in the last 5 years. This has increased the amount of manufacturing and importation of methamphetamine into New Zealand to meet the demand. Most people think that methamphetamine use and manufacture is rare, however the chances are quite high that methamphetamine has been used within your property.
Roughly 40% of the properties tested by MethSafe come back with some kind of reading. 10% of the total meth tests we do, come back with a reading that breaches the NZS8510:2017 threshold. This means there is a 1/10 shot that your property isn’t compliant with the new Zealand standards.
Properties that are affected by methamphetamine often have to undergo expensive cleaning in order to remove or reduce these residues to make the property suitable as a rental or for sale.
Meth testing allows us to understand the risks, and advice clients of the best course of action in order to minimise harm and expenditure.
Pre-purchase meth/p testing is one of the best checks prior to purchase you can get alongside a building report and ordering the LIM (land information memorandum). Getting your p/meth test from an experienced and dedicated means consultancy means you get the highest quality result, with advice that allows you to make the best decision for you. Avoid any health risks associated with heavy usage and meth labs which are far more common than people think. Meth/p tests can help you determine any financial risk of the property in the future when you go to sell. Even a small detection of meth or p can put off some buyers thus limiting the number of potential buyers interested in your property. Get to know the property before you buy, by getting a NZS8510:2017 compliant p lab test of your property. Peace of mind is only a call away.
Rental properties are at their best when they are managed properly. Management is about risk mitigation, to make sure that the asset continues to produce at the desired rate, with minimum downtime and expense costs. Rental meth/p testing provides an additional form of risk management and quality checking of your tenants while also allowing landlords to understand and meet their obligations under the residential tenancies act. Added benefits of rental meth/p testing are attracting high quality, long term tenants who will treat your property with respect and increasing your chances of getting an insurance pay-out should the worst happen. By ensuring your rental property is MethSafe, you are protecting yourself, as well as your tenants and providing an ethical service which is sustainable.
Selling a property can be a stressful affair. Add into the mix that buyers will want to do pre-purchase meth/p tests on the property. How sure are you that meth/p won’t be detected, and potential buyers put off your property? Test before you list, and potentially save yourself any marketing fees and putting buyers off your property half way through a deal. Fix the problem, before it snows balls. Make it easy for your buyers to trust you, and trust that the property will be safe for them to purchase financially and health wise.
Test a vehicle before you buy? More and more cars are being stolen to be used as clandestine methamphetamine laboratories. Protect yourself and get peace of mind that you new car will have resale value and isn’t a rolling chemical factory.
Testing fleet vehicles can give you an idea of the drug use in your company. While meth cannot be detected in normal drug tests within 48 hours of use, meth/p residues will remain inside the fleet vehicles for years. Meth/p testing vehicles can allow you to track drug usage with your employees.
Asbestos in NZ is the number one killer in the work place today. This is due to how widespread asbestos materials are, the type of work being undertaken which is most likely to disturb these materials and the delay in effects received from exposure to asbestos fibres.
These risks can include asbestosis disease which is the scarring of the lung tissue, lung cancer and malignant cancers developed around the linings of the chest and abdominal cavities.
Having any kind of refurbishment or demolition completed on your property? If you house was built between 1940 and 2000 there is a chance that it contains asbestos containing materials (ACM). Under the Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos NZ) regulations 2016, PCBU (Persons conducting business or undertaking) are legally required to understand and management the risks of asbestos in work places.
A refurbishment survey can help identify and quantify asbestos containing materials in your scope of work and provide information critical for its removal therefore meeting your requirements under the related acts. This means that any contractors brought in to assist with refurbishment are protected, as is the health of their workers.
Demolition survey also falls under the Health and Safety at work (asbestos nz) regulations. This means that prior to demolition, asbestos containing materials must be removed from the property by a certified revivalist prior to the full and complete demolition of the property
A management survey for asbestos can identify asbestos containing materials in an active worksite. The purpose of this type of survey is to identify and monitor asbestos materials to minimise the risks associated with exposure. This considers the type of material, the position and the frequency of occupancy. We can help you manage the asbestos risk in your work place and ensure you are meeting your obligations.
