Pragmatic Asbestos Advice

When materials containing asbestos are disturbed, fibres are released into the air. When these fibres are inhaled, they can cause serious and often fatal diseases. Asbestos kills around 5,000 workers each year. Around 20 tradesmen die each week from past exposure. Asbestos can be found in any industrial or residential building built or refurbished before the year 2000. These are found in many common materials including:

  • Loose asbestos in ceiling or floor cavity
  • Lagging
  • Sprayed coatings on ceilings, walls and beams/columns
  • Asbestos insulating board
  • Floor tiles, textiles and composites
  • Textured coatings
  • Asbestos cement products
  • Roofing felt
  • Rope seals and gaskets

Assessment

Your Quantum Compliance consultant will carry out an Asbestos Management Survey for all areas of your premises. You will be provided with pragmatic asbestos safety advice. This will include management, implementation, monitoring and review.

Quantum Compliance will check for three types of asbestos. These include:

  • Chrysotile
  • Amosite
  • Crocidolite

Where refurbishment or demolition work is planned, Quantum Compliance will complete a Refurbishment or Demolition Survey on the relevant parts of your building. All of Quantum Compliance’s surveys and asbestos testing are carried out following the guidelines set out in Asbestos: The Survey Guide HSG264. 

Evaluation

Quantum Compliance will evaluate your asbestos safety and identify any remedial action. This will include timescales for encapsulation and/or removal of hazardous materials. Your Quantum Compliance consultant will evaluate interim control measures for implementation in your assessment.
