How likely is it that there will be asbestos in my commercial or industrial property?

Asbestos containing materials were used widely across the construction sector in the UK because of their insulating and fire retention properties. However, due to the impact on human health when breathing in asbestos fibres, all asbestos containing products were fully banned from use in 1999. This means that if your property was constructed or renovated before the year 2000 then you should assume that it could still house asbestos containing materials.

When we carry out an asbestos survey on a property, we are looking for asbestos containing materials, as well as assessing the type of asbestos fibres that are present. Examples of some of the common places we come across asbestos containing materials in properties include - 

  • Asbestos cement, which is used on guttering and downpipes, as well as asbestos cement panels
  • Wallboards
  • Ceiling and floor tiles
  • Lagging on boiler pipes and on boilers, as well as asbestos insulation board (AIB) around boilers
  • Sprayed on wall and beam coatings

We have an FAQ section that provides more information on where you might find asbestos containing materials. However, asbestos does vary dramatically in appearance and we would always recommend that you get in touch with a professional asbestos removal company like ourselves, to provide an asbestos survey and then execute the asbestos removal project.

What qualifications are required for businesses to legally work with licensable asbestos?

Asbestos removal companies are required to have a licence to work with asbestos insulation and asbestos insulation board (AIB), due to the high levels of asbestos fibres in these particular products. In addition, to transport licensable asbestos (asbestos containing materials with high levels of asbestos in them) for disposal, a licence is required to be issued from the Environment Agency. We hold both of these licenses which can be viewed here.

We also hold multiple health and safety accreditations, which we consistently update to ensure we are working to the highest of standards, with the aim of protecting our customers and work force from the potential hazards that can occur from disturbed asbestos containing materials.

Some of these organisations are  - 

  • The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents
  • SafeContractor
  • Asbestos Removal Contractors Association
  • CHAS

Finally we have the following certificates for Alcumus ISOQAR -

  • ISO 45001: 2018
  • ISO 14001: 2015
  • ISO 9001: 2015

These certificates can all be viewed and downloaded.
