Asbestos Encapsulation at Morrisons Distribution Centre

Maintaining a safe environment for warehouse and logistics staff.

Service

Encapsulation of large amounts of asbestos insulating board.

Background

Morrisons, the UK’s fourth largest supermarket chain, needed a practical solution to make safe the asbestos at its busy 24-hour distribution centre in Stockton-on-Tees.

Project details

BLS Asbestos Ltd was commissioned to encapsulate 1500m2 of asbestos insulating board at the Morrisons depot in Stockton-on-Tees. Encapsulation was chosen over a large removal operation due to the downtime removal would incur for the supermarket's operational business at this location.

Detailed risk assessments and method statements were compiled to ensure the safety of all on site during the programmed works. The project was engaging and supervision of every element of the process was closely watched by our in-house Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality Manager, with continual audits conducted throughout the month-long process.
