Due to the dangers that are now known to be associated with asbestos (such as life threatening diseases including lung cancer and mesothelioma), strict measures need to be adhered to.
The HSE control of asbestos regulations 2006 now prohibit the use and supply of asbestos in the United Kingdom. However, if your building was built or modified from the 1950’s onwards, there may well be asbestos contained within the building materials, and if these fibres are disturbed, there could be serious consequences. Because of the dangers of asbestos exposure, the HSE control of asbestos regulations 2006 also usually require a licence to be held in order to work with asbestos.
Asbestos surveyors such as Lucion Environmental are licensed to inspect, test and remove asbestos. Thus if you are concerned that there may be asbestos within your property or business properties, it is important you contact Lucion. Once you do this, they can survey the property, test samples for asbestos, and manage the asbestos if found, in a fully qualified and highly trained manner, ensuring that all health and safety requirements are fulfilled and the safety of the inhabitants of the building is guaranteed.
