Asbestos In Dorset

Are you afraid that you might be asbestos on your premises? With our help, we can make sure that there isn’t any asbestos currently present within your building that could potentially be damaged or disturbed in any way. Asbestos in Dorset has been a problem for many years and not just in Dorset but the whole of the UK as well. It is said that in the UK alone over 1 million commercial, industrial and public buildings contain asbestos materials. It was in the 1950s and up until the 1980s that asbestos was used in a variety of products such as thermal insulation, fireproofing, electrical insulation and building materials. Even up until 1999 some asbestos products were still being used. It is said that any commercial or industrial buildings that were either built or extensively renovated would more than likely contain asbestos in some form or another.

According to the HSE asbestos is responsible for over 4500 deaths each year. The reason for this is that it causes four main diseases. These are mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and diffuse pleural thickening. Our team are more than capable of removing all materials that are present in your building but a survey will have to be completed before we can do any work. A key stage in managing asbestos is to identify the location, type, conditions and extent of any asbestos-containing materials. The surveys that have to be done are the management survey or the refurbishment and demolition survey, the one that is done will depend on the circumstances and what is happening to your property.

The management survey is used to locate the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance. Then the refurbishment and demolition survey is completed before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out. This survey is used to locate and describe all ACMs in the area of which the refurbishment is taking place or in the whole building if demolition is planned. A part of the survey is that it will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection to gain access to all areas.
