You will need an asbestos survey in Westhoughton should you have any plans for any renovation work on your building. This is necessary for all older buildings constructed before the 1980s. An asbestos survey is needed to ensure the safety of the construction workers who will be handling the material that is removed from the building. If there is any asbestos in the waste it could be inhaled and cause serious damage to their health. All older buildings are likely to have some form of asbestos in them. It is your responsibility to provide the renovation company with a survey detailing what kind of asbestos has been used and the state of the asbestos.
As the manager or owner of a business, it is your responsibility to ensure their awareness and protection regarding asbestos. In Westhoughton, an asbestos survey will ensure that all health and safety regulations are being met. Any building erected before the 1980s has likely asbestos-containing materials within. It is essential that these are checked as once damaged, the fibres can get into the air and inhaled into people’s lungs. The asbestos fibres are sharp and lodge in the lining of the lungs. They can never be removed and cause breathing difficulties over time. The result can also be incurable disease. You will be held liable if your staff are not trained in asbestos management or if your building harbours airborne asbestos fibres.
