We offer a full range of Asbestos consultancy services, ranging from advice on corporate policy to undertaking Asbestos surveys and assisting in the preparation of Asbestos management plans. These plans are a legal requirement under the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations.
Failure to comply with the Asbestos regulations may mean that a prohibition notice is placed on your buildings – effectively closing down your workplace until it is confirmed as safe. The duty holder of a commercial property is also liable for prosecution under the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations. Asbestos has a high resistance to heat and many chemicals; it was extremely popular in the 1960s to the mid ’70s before the harmful properties were known.
The danger arises when Asbestos is damaged through bumps and scrapes or destroyed by cutting, drilling or ripping. If properly controlled and maintained, there is no reason why materials containing Asbestos cannot remain in use for many years. When disturbed, Asbestos releases airborne fibres which can kill!
Asbestos was commonly used in: floor tiles, pipe lagging, Artex, fuse boxes, rainwater pipes and central heating systems.
