Asbestos is a serious problem, and an asbestos survey for schools in the city of London is regarded as urgent. Asbestos in the walls of school buildings can threaten the health of children, and worse is when schools don’t follow safety guidelines. It is frightening to realise that asbestos is still found in many UK buildings and that the deadly fibres are linked to cancer type mesothelioma. Asbestos is thought to be present in schools constructed between 1950 and 2000, and unfortunately when materials that contain asbestos are disturbed, fibres are released into the air. Children are often careless too, and therefore buildings can be more easily damaged, allowing the asbestos fibres into the air. At ACS we work with schools to make sure they are safer, and the asbestos packages we offer are tailored to tackle the dangers the school is facing.
We are a team of asbestos experts and we can tackle all safety and environmental issues surrounding asbestos. We help schools comply with their duty to manage asbestos. In the city of London, an asbestos survey for schools is step number one. The survey’s purpose is to provide accurate information on the location of asbestos containing materials and to use the survey-information to prepare a record about the specifics of asbestos in the school. Apart from the survey, at ACS we also want to ensure that the head of the school and all the teachers are aware of requirements in respect of asbestos management procedures and legislation. We then inform them of the work to be done on the school buildings.
