An asbestos survey in Astley will bring you peace of mind. Not only is a legal requirement of the duty holder, it is also necessary to ensure that the occupants of your building remain aware and safe. Asbestos was, for many years, regarded as excellent additive to building materials. Strong, easily available, resistant to chemicals, excellent sound and heat insulation and many other great properties are the reasons why it was so extensively used. In fact, if a building was constructed before 2000, it more than likely has asbestos-containing materials within its structure. You may be wondering why you would need an asbestos survey.
Asbestos is also known as a silent killer. In Astley, an asbestos survey will determine where any asbestos is located as well as its condition. Exposure to asbestos is lethal. The results of this exposure aren’t quickly identifiable. When asbestos is old or is damaged, it becomes friable. Its fibres then become airborne and can by inhaled by those in the vicinity. The fibres embed in the lining of the lungs, resulting in incurable diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma. There are currently around 2,500 deaths per year from mesothelioma in the UK. This is a high statistic and it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of the people working or occupying your building. The first step would be to consult with an asbestos company to schedule a survey.
