Asbestos In Shops & Commercial Premises
Asbestos in shops and commercial premises can be a hidden hazard. Many buildings in Northern Ireland built before the year 2000 contain asbestos. Shops, offices and public property are no exception.
Does My Shop Contain Asbestos?
Your shop or commercial property may well contain asbestos material. The problem of asbestos in shops is that when a new shop comes to town, an interior refurbishment usually takes place. Shops, restaurants or cafes like to upgrade and refurbish their interior from time to time.
During refurbishments, asbestos fibres can be released into the air. Breathing in asbestos fibres can prove fatal and must be avoided.
How You Can Limit Asbestos Exposure During Shop Refurbishment?
When you decide to refurbish your shop or business premises, always make sure that you have an Asbestos Refurbishment Survey carried out before any work commences. Your building can contain large amounts of asbestos that can be hidden by coverings and coatings. Any work carried out by the builder can release these asbestos fibres especially if they do not know that the asbestos is present.
An Asbestos Refurbishment Survey will provide a report for the builder so that they know exactly where asbestos is located before work commences. This ensures a safe working environment for everyone going in and out of the building. For more information on our surveys please see our services page here.
