In much the same way that we should all be aware of any asbestos that is present in our homes, learning about the presence of asbestos in the workplace is a vital component of making it as safe as possible.
If you are the person responsible for the maintenance of a commercial property you have the legal responsibility to investigate a building if it is thought that there is asbestos present. You should have been provided with all the relevant information about any asbestos present in the building at the moment you assumed responsibility for the property. This should have included the location and condition of any asbestos.
If you do not have this information, or it appears to not have much detail within it, you should hire the services of an expert asbestos survey and management team such as Artisan Surveyors. You should always be as cautious as possible when it comes to asbestos, as it only takes on time to be exposed to asbestos fibres for you to become ill in many years to come.
Risk assessments will show whether any asbestos has been disturbed and whether the asbestos can be sealed up safely and left in place, or whether an asbestos removal process must be undertaken. During the investigation and the work to remove any asbestos there must be clear warnings for all people who use the building.
Our team at Artisan Surveyors has a proud history of exceptional asbestos surveys and management, ensuring the safety of our clients in both domestic and commercial properties.
