What is licensable asbestos?

Licensable asbestos is asbestos removal work where a licensed contractor is required to remove and transport the asbestos for safe disposal.

The HSE states that- 

The Control of Asbestos Regulations define licensable work as follows:

  • where the exposure of workers to asbestos is not sporadic and of low intensity
  • the risk assessment cannot clearly demonstrate that the control limit will not be exceeded
  • work on asbestos coating
  • work on asbestos insulating board or asbestos insulation for which the risk assessment demonstrates it is not short duration work, for example:
    • it will take no more than 2 hours in any 7-day period, and no person works for more than 1 hour in that 2-hour period

Examples of  where licensable asbestos could be found in your property is -

  • Loose fill insulation
  • Asbestos insulation board, which is also referred to as AIB
  • Sprayed on coatings
  • Pipe lagging, which can also be found around boilers
  • Loose or fine debris which contains asbestos dust

We also always recommend that any kind of asbestos removal work is carried out by an asbestos removal company ,due to the dangers that exposure to asbestos can cause. More about this can be read on the NHS website.

BLS Asbestos Ltd have the following licenses -

  • A 3-year licence granted by the Health and Safety Executive to work with asbestos insulation and asbestos insulation board for the purpose of removal (licence number 991904287).
  • A licence to transport hazardous waste, awarded by the Environment Agency, which allows us to safely transport and dispose of the asbestos once removed. Our Waste Carriers Registration Number is CBDU180277.

You may be struggling to determine if you have asbestos in your property. We can carry out an asbestos survey which will highlight if you have asbestos in or around your property. if the survey shows that you do then it will also show us what type of asbestos you have in the property, which helps us to devise and execute a plan for its safe removal.
