Asbestos During Demolition Work

Asbestos During Demolition Work

There’s not a day that goes by that you don’t see buildings being knocked down to make way for new development. This includes schools, shops, other public buildings and business parks.

If care is not taken, any rubble can contain asbestos fibres that are harmful to anyone near the site. Not only that, it can contaminate a very large area in no time.

Avoiding Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos exposure can be avoided by having a demolition asbestos survey carried out before any work begins. We can help by conducting a full asbestos survey and locating asbestos before any potential disturbance.

Northern Ireland Recycling Company Fined For Employee Asbestos Exposure

Contractors will know exactly where the asbestos is and arrangements can be made to make the project safe.

Unfortunately in the past there have been times where demolition was carried out without an asbestos survey or asbestos removal beforehand. Luckily we now know how to do things safely which is saving lives.

Contact Philip today on 07702 332 333. We are a small team of independent asbestos surveyors working across Northern Ireland.
