It is important that you get all of the Asbestos Containing Materials out of your premises, we can help you do just that. We have a comprehensive and competitive asbestos removal and safe disposal service in Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and throughout central and southern England. We can carry out asbestos surveys and testing on domestic and commercial property. Asbestos has been used for more than 2000 years and in the UK along over 1 million commercial, industrial and public buildings contain asbestos material. In the UK between the 1950s and the 1980s 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. During the above 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 reasons for this is because asbestos can cause four main diseases. These are mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and diffuse pleural thickening.
We have a highly trained team that can undertake the removal and disposal of all materials containing asbestos. The company holds a full and unconditional health and safety executive licence (HSE) to work on or with asbestos and we also own and manage our own licenced waste transfer station permitted by the environment agency. Our attitude to asbestos means that we can offer comprehensively integrated and expert solutions, surveys, risk assessments, removal, repair, reinstatement and disposal at the most competitive rates.
The surveying our team can do is a key stage in managing asbestos. We can do a management survey and a refurbishment/demolition survey, the management survey is used to locate as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and access to their condition. Then the refurbishment and demolition survey is needed before any work has taken place for the refurbishment or demolition. 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. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas.
