Asbestos Survey in Hull: an Essential First Step Towards Legal Compliance and Safety

Asbestos Survey in HullAn asbestos survey in Hull is an essential first step to managing the asbestos in your building. It is also a step towards becoming legally compliant. Exposure to asbestos remains a large problem. As asbestos fibres cannot be easily seen, workers in a building with asbestos-containing materials are at risk. They may unknowingly inhale these fibres, with deadly results later in life. A huge number of old buildings contain asbestos as a result of the excellent properties it added to building materials. It was highly popular and was used extensively. As such, it can be found in insulation, ceiling boards and guttering. It can also be found in roofs and roof sheets.

The use of asbestos in construction is now prohibited. However, in Hull, an asbestos survey is mandatory for any old building. The purpose of the survey is to ensure that any asbestos-containing materials within the building can be properly managed and ultimately keep the occupants in the building safe from harm. It is required by law to have a management plan in place. This is possible when you use the services of an expert team for an asbestos survey. The asbestos survey can indicate where there are any asbestos-containing materials that could pose a risk. It can also indicate which asbestos-containing materials should be safely removed.
