Fully licensed

BSI certified

We are BSI certified to ISO9001 (Quality Management Systems) and AS4801 (Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems).

Trusted reputation

Our reputation in the industry has resulted in us collaborating with various authorities, regulatory bodies, and government to develop approved codes of practice and safe-work procedures to remove asbestos in soils.

“We enlisted the Kennedys team for a large-scale asbestos removal job at a school as part of reinstatement works following a building fire. Over a very tight deadline, with many industrial challenges, Kennedys professionally managed all the scope changes and additions put to them and delivered the project safely. Their focus on ensuring delivery in a non-disruptive or intrusive way to school operations was outstanding. Very deserving of a well-earned pat on the back, thanks Kennedys.”

“What wonderful people you have working for you. A child day care centre right on our fence line has recently had asbestos removed from it. Your workers informed us on the initial day and then each day from then on what was going to happen… we were kept informed every step of the way. We really appreciated their kindness and care and were relieved to know that what they were doing, they took it seriously. Please pat them on the back. It’s nice to know you make a difference.”

R. Kershaw

“For over twenty years, Kennedys has had a very close association with the chicken plant in Leather Street Breakwater. Through the highs and lows of our industry, Kennedys has been there to assist us in every major plant upgrade, every emergency breakdown, as well as the critical compliance testing of hot/cold mixing units and backflow prevention units.”

“As an operations manager I have had the opportunity to work with Kennedys Australia over the last ten years in both the aviation and the tourism industry. Despite dealing with hundreds of companies over this period, Kennedy are a clear standout above the rest for their professionalism, innovation and the amazing customer service that I receive from their office staff, management and tradesmen.  Could not recommend them highly enough.”

Greg Kerr, Facilities and Assets Operations Manager

“Thanks for the great job you’ve done for us with the steel work you supplied to the Deans Marsh Festival Stand community pavilion at the Oval in Deans Marsh. The job worked out really well and looks great”

Brendan Brown, Club Secretary

We are continually impressed with how the Kennedys team operate at both personal and professional levels to ensure the very best commercial outcomes for our projects. Their vast asbestos and environmental experience and knowledge are repeatedly demonstrated through the delivery of innovative, cost-effective, and time-efficient solutions. In return, Kennedys have become our ‘go to’ advisor and service provider wherever possible

Shane Dargue, Senior Development Manager

“I have used Kennedys as our preferred supplier for the last six years at a prominent manufacturing site in Melbourne. Their excellent work ethic and ‘can do’ culture distinguishes them as a business that can be relied on. On numerous occasions, they have mobilised rapidly to get us through a difficult repair. I would highly recommend this business to anyone requiring a highly motivated and skilled team whose expertise goes far beyond simple pipes and drains.”

How dangerous is asbestos?

Breathing in asbestos fibres can cause asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma. Where fibro or other bonded asbestos sheeting is broken, damaged or mishandled fibres can become loose and airborne posing a risk to health. Disturbing or removing it unsafely can create a hazard. You should always use a professional accredited asbestos removalist, like Kennedys.

How do we know you have done a good job?

An independent hygienist will provide you with a written clearance, confirming the removal has been completed to a satisfactory standard.

How do I know if asbestos is within our facility or work area?

An asbestos division 5 site audit will confirm what is positive for asbestos on your site. Kennedys can assist coordinating this on your behalf.
