What is an asbestos containing material?
Asbestos is a naturally occurring substance and it should be noted that it isn't dangerous until it is disturbed or damaged.
An asbestos containing material is classed as any material that contains asbestos, which is a product that was used widely across the construction sector for many years in the UK until it was banned fully from use in 1999.
It was popular because of its fire resistance and insulating properties, meaning it can commonly be found in many places across a property. Some examples include -
- Sprayed on coatings on walls, floors, roofs and beams
- Fire doors
- Lagging on pipes and around boilers
- Floor and roof tiles
- Asbestos cement, commonly used on the exterior of properties
If you suspect that you have asbestos containing materials in or around your property then it may be your duty to ensure it is removed. The HSE has some valuable information on who's duty it is to manage asbestos within commercially owned property but ultimately if asbestos is found on a property and you are the duty holder then the safest option is to get it removed by asbestos removal specialists like us.
Who can remove asbestos?
We would always recommend that asbestos containing materials should be removed by licensed professionals like ourselves, however some asbestos products have to be removed by a licensed contractor due to the higher risk involved in removing licensable asbestos.
BLS Asbestos hold all the relevant licenses to remove all types of asbestos, as well as the expertise and experience required to ensure your daily business operations are minimally disrupted.
Our core licenses are -
- A license to work with asbestos insulation and asbestos insulation board for the purpose of removal
- A licence to transport hazardous waste
More on these two licenses can be seen here.
We also have Certificates of Registration for ISO 45001, 14001 and 9001 Management Systems, which can all be downloaded here.
Finally we are members of many trade associations, that enable us to to keep abreast of any new information on asbestos guidance, as well as ensuring we stay up to date on health and safety standards within the industry. Some of these include -
