When you are given the responsibility of being in charge of premises such as a shop, a small industrial unit or even a school, you must indeed perform your legal duty in relation to managing asbestos according to the laws of the United Kingdom.
You must determine if you have cause for concern regarding asbestos. One thing to consider for sure is when your establishment was built If your building was constructed in the year of 2000 or later, then it is very highly unlikely to contain any asbestos at all.
However if the building was built before the year of 2000, there could be areas of the building that do contain asbestos. Even if they do not, it is best to call in the professionals to see if there is need for asbestos management. That really is your legal obligation. Our company is very pleased to be able to offer this service to you.
It is your obligation to consider brownfield sites as well. This refers to the fact that an area of land was previously developed usually for industrial and commercial purposes with the probability that the land may be contaminated with the presence of asbestos due to things that contain asbestos being buried under the earth. This means that the ground should be tested. We are very pleased to offer these kinds of services to you.
If you are in an establishment that has old equipment, you can likely assume that it has asbestos in it. This asbestos can be present in ovens, brakes, soundproofing, insulating mats, fire blankets, oven gloves, ironing surfaces and more. Then it is best to contact us so that we can dispose of these things in a legal manner according to the safety and health laws of the United Kingdom.
In order to deal with asbestos management, there must be a survey done. We will assess the risks that associated with the materials and objects that contain asbestos on your premises. We will devise a legal plan for managing the asbestos in order to enable you to protect your health and the health of those who will frequent the premises as it is public knowledge that asbestos is a hazard to the health of people when they breath in particles of asbestos that float in the air or are exposed to open sources of asbestos. The health problems can be lung issues, difficulty breathing and even cancer.
It is necessary to advise staff and visitors about the risks of the asbestos in the building and warn them about the precautions that they must follow in order to ensure their ultimate safety at all times while in the building and on the property. You should always review the management of the asbestos in your building and on your property regularly with the presence of a professional service such as ours. Once you have contacted us, we can come up with a plan that includes how many times per year that we need to visit your property to check up on the asbestos situation.
Sometimes it is necessary to remove asbestos. The main thing is not to disturb the asbestos too much, so that it is not moving around in the air in order to not contaminate the air supply that could otherwise harm people if asbestos particles are floating around in it. It is imperative that you do not remove the asbestos yourself, so that you do not become ill from the asbestos and so that no particles harm others.
For example, when we have to remove asbestos from a property, we have the right protective clothing, masks and other protective gear. We also make sure to enclose the area with plastic to keep particles of asbestos from contaminating other areas, which is vital to ensure the safety of all who enter the building in the future.
If you think that you have an asbestos issue, then it is best to contact us. We will do a thorough investigation of your building and property and then report to you what we have found. We will provide you with the best possible plan for asbestos management or for asbestos removal. We have much experience in these types of services and will be happy to answer all your questions.
