BLS Asbestos Ltd have been conducting asbestos surveys and asbestos removal in industrial and commercial settings for over 20 years.

Although we undertake a wide range of asbestos removal projects, we primarily focus on commercial work. Our expertise and experience means that we are able to work around the needs of your business in Chesterfield, doing our utmost to ensure that your daily business operations aren't interrupted whilst removing the asbestos safely and securely.

Examples of some of the business sectors that we regularly remove asbestos from are - 

  • Prisons
  • Schools and colleges
  • Warehouse
  • Demolition and renovation sites
  • Healthcare
  • Public sector property

You can read more about the sectors we focus on here, however we undertake most asbestos removal projects so get in touch with us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Do all properties have asbestos containing materials in them?

Asbestos containing materials were used extensively across the construction sector because of the insulating and fire resistant properties that asbestos provides. However the consequences to long term human health (read more about this) when breathing in asbestos fibres, led to it being fully banned from use in the UK in 1999.

However, there are still many properties that house asbestos containing materials and if your property in Chesterfield was constructed or renovated before 1999 then you should assume that it could have asbestos within or around it.

The HSE states

Presume the building contains asbestos unless you know for sure it doesn't.

We find asbestos in many areas across properties when carrying out an asbestos survey, however some are more common than others - 

  • Asbestos cement, which is generally found on the exterior of properties like guttering, roofs and chimney flues
  • Loose fill insulation at the top of buildings to help them retain heat
  • Asbestos insulation board (AIB)
  • Lagging on boilers and hot water pipes
  • Cold water tanks
  • Panels in fire doors and window frames
  • Floor and roof tiles

Should you want more information on what asbestos looks like (it can vary from product to product) or need an asbestos survey or removal plan executing, get in touch with us and we can let you know what your next steps should be.

Removing licensable asbestos in the UK

We recommend that all asbestos containing materials are removed by a professional asbestos removal company, however working to remove licensable asbestos is the most dangerous work and can only be carried out by companies who have the required licenses, like ourselves.

We hold a license to work with licensable asbestos and another licence to transport it for secure disposal. More about these licenses can be seen here.

We also have certificates of registration for ISO 45001, 14001 and 9001 management systems, which can all be downloaded.

Health and safety is of paramount importance when working to safely remove asbestos containing materials. We always work to the highest of standards and take regular guidance to constantly improve our processes, from bodies such as -
