There are a number of methods used during the processing stages to identify materials containing asbestos. Both excavator operators and crusher operators inspect incoming loads as they are prepared for processing. As part of the process associated with the crushing plant, there are picking stations where staff visually scan and remove unwanted waste material on the transfer belt.
