Asbestos management and Consultancy

Asbestos is the leading cause of occupational cancer in the UK: That’s why professional asbestos services are essential.

What you need to know

If you are a building owner, and/or are responsible for the maintenance or repair of non-domestic premises, you have a duty to manage any asbestos in that building.

The duty to manage covers all non-domestic premises including industrial and commercial buildings such as factories, warehouses, offices and shops.  The duty also covers public buildings such as hospitals, schools, museums, libraries, leisure centres, churches and other religious buildings.

Although the duty does not apply to domestic premises such as private houses, it does apply to the ‘common parts’ of multi-occupancy domestic premises, such as purpose-built flats or houses that are converted into flats.

What you need to do as the dutyholder:

  • Find out if asbestos is present
  • Make a record of the location, type and condition of the asbestos
  • Assess the risk of anyone being exposed to the asbestos
  • Prepare a plan on how to manage these risks
  • Put the plan into action, monitor it and keep it up to date
  • Provide this information to anyone who might work on or disturb the asbestos

Asbestos is not something to take chances with.  There are different types of asbestos and all are potentially lethal.  Asbestos in good condition does not pose a threat to health, but if damaged or disturbed, it will release minute carcinogenic fibres into the air.
