Asbestos Awareness Tips
- Asbestos was used throughout Northern Ireland up until the year 2000 in some cases. It may have been illegally used after this date by tradesmen who did not believe the dangers. If you are working in a building or making upgrades (remember that you may be the innocent office worker, and trades men may be doing the work in the vicinity) if you don’t know that the material you are working with is asbestos or not, then assume that it is until it is checked.
- Asbestos was used in the most strange places. We carry out asbestos surveys in NI and we have to tell you, it still amazes me where we sometime find asbestos in the home and workplace. If in doubt always book an asbestos survey. Call Philip Hobson on 07702 332 333 to book.
- A myth that is always doing the rounds is that asbestos exposure only occurs when knocking down a wall or refurbishing a house. Wrong I’m afraid! Asbestos exposure can be a result of simply walking into an old roof space or boiler room. Installing cat 5 network cable or simply fitting a new burglar alarm bell box. Never underestimate the danger.
