Are you breaking the Control of Asbestos Regulations put in to law just last year? Asbestos is the leading cause of employee related deaths. Call us today on 01562 888108 to prevent becoming penalised.
In the UK asbestos is the single greatest cause of employment-related deaths. Exposure occurs when asbestos-containing materials (ACM) become airborne, resulting in the breathing in of dangerous fibres that over time cause serious illnesses such as lung cancer. Those most at risk of exposure are those who disturb the materials, making it vital to know where they are located.
The 2012 Control of Asbestos Regulations made it a legal requirement for owners of non-domestic buildings to manage any ACM on the premises. Not only do you have to be aware of any ACM present, you have to monitor for any deterioration of the materials, and remove the materials if necessary.
Air Tech E.C.S. can arrange for surveys to be undertaken (Types 1-3) and provide advice concerning the safe management of existing asbestos containing materials present.
