Removing asbestos from your property/premises is very important as the effects of asbestos can cause harm to the human body. We can provide you with a complete service for asbestos removal. Under particular regulations, the duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic properties sets a legal requirement for owners and occupiers of non-domestic buildings to have an asbestos survey and up to date asbestos register in place. The reports must form the basis of a detailed asbestos management plan that outlines how you intend to monitor and manage any ACM’s that may be present within your premises or estate. If you are an employer or are self-employed and have some or all of the responsibility for conducting repairs upon your premises you may well be the duty holder in which case any legal responsibility for ensuring your asbestos survey has been conducted.
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. There is a management survey and this is used as a standard survey to locate, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy. Then there is a refurbishment & demolition survey, this survey is needed before any work can be started. The survey is used to locate and describe all ACMs in the area where the refurbishment work will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned. This survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection to gain access to all areas including those that may be difficult to reach.
Asbestos has been used for more than 2000 years and in the UK alone over 1 million commercial, industrial and public buildings contain asbestos material. In the UK between the 1950s and the 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 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 findings by the HSE asbestos is responsible for 4500 deaths each year. The reason why asbestos is so deadly is that it can cause four diseases. These are mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and diffuse pleural thickening. Our highly trained team can undertake the removal and disposal of all materials containing asbestos.
