Have you wondered why an asbestos survey in Shevington is necessary? Perhaps you’ve planned on renovating your older building and have been informed that you need an asbestos survey before you can begin? The reason for an asbestos survey is that asbestos, when disturbed, is lethal. When it is disturbed, it releases fibres which can be inhaled by those in the vicinity. The inhaled fibres can, over time, cause fatal diseases such as asbestosis, mesothelioma and cancer. Once a wonder material in the building trade, it was extensively used in many building projects. Since the discovery of its dangers, asbestos and asbestos-containing materials have been banned. This is why you need an asbestos survey before your renovation project.
For your renovation project in Shevington, an asbestos survey is necessary to meet your duty to manage your obligations as set out by the HSE. While it was lauded as a great building material additive, its dangers are still affecting people today. Many older buildings still contain asbestos-containing materials, and while they do not pose a threat if they are left undisturbed, it is when the asbestos is disturbed that it is dangerous to all who come into contact with it. As the owner of an older building, it is likely that you are unaware of the amount and condition of any asbestos within the building. It is essential to have an asbestos survey to determine the extent and location of the asbestos-containing material in your building.
