If you are an employer or are self-employed and have some or all of the responsibility for conducting repairs upon your premises or estate. A key stage in managing asbestos is to identify the location, type, condition and extent of any asbestos-containing materials. This can be achieved by conducting an Asbestos survey of which there are two that can be completed on a property. These are the management survey and the Refurbishment & Demolition Survey. In the UK between the 1950s and mid-1980s, asbestos was used in a wide variety of products such as thermal insulation, fireproofing, electrical insulation and building materials. Even up until 1999 some asbestos products were still being used. During this period and especially between the 60s and 70s, any commercial or industrial building that was either built or extensively renovated would more than likely contain asbestos in some form or another.
According to the HSE, asbestos is responsible for 4500 deaths each year. The reason for this is that it causes four main diseases. These are mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening. Asbestos Contracting Limited has a highly trained team that is able to undertake the removal and disposal of all materials containing asbestos.
