Protect your business and your workforce from the risks associated with working with asbestos
Asbestos was extensively used as a building material in the UK since the 1950s. Any building built before 2000 most likely contains asbestos, including factories, schools, offices, hospitals and houses. It was used chiefly as insulation and fireproofing but has a variety of uses and can be found in pipe insulation, boiler housings, vinyl (PVC) and thermoplastic tiles, sprayed coatings and textured decorative coatings such as Artex, asbestos cement sheeting.
It is often mixed with other materials, which makes it hard to spot. It is stable whilst undamaged but if the fibres become airborne then the risks increase significantly.
