Hospitals cannot shut down for asbestos removal. We work around the needs of this 24/7 sector, which provides care and treatment for patients.
The vast scale and variety of buildings within the healthcare sector means that asbestos inevitably needs to be removed from older buildings, as hospitals and NHS Trusts evolve. Current estimates suggest that there are asbestos containing materials within 9/10 hospitals.
Examples of where asbestos containing materials can be found in hospitals are -
- Asbestos lagging on pipes and boilers
- Asbestos which has been sprayed to act as insulation or fire protection
- Ceiling and floor tiles
- Cement roofing and guttering

The removal of asbestos in hospitals poses no threat to staff or patients when carried out correctly, however boiler rooms, offices and wards all require different levels of attention when removing asbestos, whilst healthcare continues to be provided to patients in surrounding areas.
We know that working in hospitals means that there are a wide range of ongoing delicate scenarios, as patients are provided with treatment. We ensure that our staff have the expertise and awareness to deal with patients and their families, as well as the surrounding clinical and non-clinical staff.
If you have any questions or want more information about our experience of working in the healthcare sector, then please don't hesitate to get in touch with us via the contact form on this page or by telephone 01484 400558.
