Asbestos Removal in Greater London 0845 073 8602

Up until the year 2000, asbestos was used as a construction material in many buildings, including but not limited to HM Prisons, local and national government offices, and even town halls. The safe removal of asbestos and asbestos-contaminated materials is hugely important, due to the risk of damage to human health.

All government-run and occupied buildings should be surveyed by professionals to identify any risks. Older, larger buildings such as prisons and those used by the Ministry of Defence are particularly affected.

Asbestos was a commonly-used building material in the decades leading up to the millennium, and many in-use utilities premises may have asbestos or asbestos-contaminated materials still present today. Buildings used by electric, gas and water companies, including power plants and offices which were constructed pre-2000 must be surveyed for asbestos risk to ensure future health problems can be avoided.

Site agents, facilities managers and maintenance managers working within the utilities sector have a duty under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 to assess and manage asbestos risks. This duty may also fall under the remit of your health & safety department.

Asbestos was a common material used to build water and sewerage pipes due to its tensile strength, as well as being present in large concrete structures. With this in mind, it’s easy to see why buildings used by utility companies can require particular attention.

According to the Health & Safety Executive, asbestos is responsible for over 5,000 deaths every year. Prolonged exposure to small airborne particles of asbestos can cause lung disease, cancer and other life-changing diseases years or even decades later.
