We’ve all heard of Asbestos right? Unless you’ve been living on another planet.
Do you know you have duties under the law to manage asbestos? For commercial clients especially this is a serious issue and one which could result in prison if you don’t know your duties and put others at risk.
You must have a management survey in place for all buildings where asbestos could be present (which is most) and if you want to carry out any work which could disturb the fabric (walls, floors, ceiling etc) you must have a refurbishment survey. This is an intrusive survey which can involve taking samples for testing.
If you’re unsure about your duties you should discuss this with your Health & Safety advisor or give us a call.
