Asbestos Risks

Asbestos is a killer. Every week approximately 20 tradesmen die from asbestos-related diseases, highlighted by the HSE’s Hidden Killer campaign, and knowing how and when to deal with asbestos is crucial.

  • Asbestos is only dangerous when disturbed.
  • If it is safely managed and contained, it doesn’t present a health hazard.
  • Removing it can be more dangerous than simply containing it.

Lack of knowledge of the exact location of asbestos has always been a problem. Asbestos was used extensively in buildings and building materials in the past.  Unless you know categorically that asbestos is not present in a building then you should always assume that it is present and proceed with your works accordingly, trust in the advice of asbestos professionals.
