Without question, good risk management practices can and do reduce the risk of damage from termite attack on buildings. The Termite Risk Management handbook details how, providing a step by step guide for the building industry. This invaluable resource outlines regulatory and statutory requirements, provides guidelines to use in the building process and finishes by discussing the risk of damage to houses from termites.
Three major issues require special mention because of the underlying impact on the above issues:
1. Builders and designers should work together to limit possible damage by termites.
2. The Principal Certifying Authority should check and ensure that installed systems comply with the requirements of the Building Code of Australia (BCA), and in most cases, AS3660.1 as well.
3. Consumers should be advised that they are responsible for organising post-construction management of termite risk.
