A professional Eastleigh asbestos removal specialist will be Health and Safety Executive licensed and trained, and will follow all the appropriate guidelines and laws to safely and correctly complete the removal from your home.
THE HEALTH DANGERS OF ASBESTOS
You don't need to be concerned unduly about asbestos when it is in your home and left undisturbed. Only when it's cut or scraped can tiny asbestos particles be discharged into the atmosphere. Asbestosis is the medical condition that is caused by asbestos particles entering into the lungs and getting trapped. It has been found that asbestos fibres or particles are also a contributing factor in lung cancer.
There is no known cure for asbestosis and the scarring to the lungs caused by the asbestos fibres cannot be reversed.
Symptoms for asbestosis could include:
- Persistent Cough
- Pain in Your Shoulder or Chest
- Severe Shortness of Breath
- Extreme Fatigue
If you think you've been been in contact with asbestos over a period of time, and you develop any one of these symptoms, you must see your doctor and seek expert medical advice.
WHAT YOU NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN YOU ARE DEALING WITH ASBESTOS
Buildings and properties that were built from 1945 - 1985 are more likely to have asbestos in their construction than those built after this period; asbestos was only banned for construction purposes in Great Britain after 1999. If your home or property was constructed in this time period you must be conscious of the possibility of finding asbestos during renovation works. It was used as an insulation material in walls, roofs and for pipes, and was also a fantastic fire proofing product.
If you do come across asbestos in your home in Eastleigh, it does not result in an immediate threat or danger. It's only when asbestos is interfered with that it can become a hazard to health. Actually, in some structures it is best to leave the asbestos in situ and employ precautions to ensure it's not going to be damaged. If unsure about the condition of the asbestos or its safety, check with a qualified asbestos surveyor or removal company in Eastleigh.
There are different degrees of health risk associated with the wide range of asbestos products that can be discovered in older buildings. As a consequence of how different asbestos products are made and their likelihood to release fibres into the atmosphere, products like asbestos insulation boards, pipe lagging and loose fill insulations are considered higher risk to health than asbestos cement sheets and roofing panels. A certified asbestos removal contractor in Eastleigh is able to offer you a safe method for removing all types of asbestos that may be discovered in your home.
If the removal of asbestos has need of a HSE license holder to complete the process, then the HSE or the local authority has to be informed. To limit and prevent any potential exposure to asbestos, the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 is the legal document that has to be followed by your registered removal contractor.
You need to be aware that it's an offence punishable by law to conduct anything that is deemed to be licensed work without having a license.
ASBESTOS DISPOSAL Eastleigh
Asbestos material of any type, once it has been stripped away from your Eastleigh property or home, is regarded as hazardous waste. There are rigid procedures necessary to dispose of any type of hazardous waste, particularly that which contains asbestos materials. A licensed asbestos removal company will be acquainted with the required laws and guidelines in the local area for the disposal of the hazardous asbestos materials.
The Carriage of Dangerous Goods Act 2009 deals with the transfer and disposal of asbestos material if it is damaged or is in the form of loose fibres. The CDG 2009 act states that a separate waste carrier's license is necessary and that the waste must be transferred to a registered hazardous waste disposal facility. Your Eastleigh asbestos removal contractor will take liability for making certain this is achieved correctly, and must retain all documents pertaining to the work and disposal for no less than 3 years.
THE STAGES OF WORK
Before any actual work commences on removing any questionable materials from your Eastleigh home you'll need to make sure that it is in fact asbestos. Only a registered asbestos surveyor or contractor can legally establish asbestos and the methods needed for removing and disposing of it. If you do not carry out testing for asbestos and the structure was built before 1999, you should presume there is asbestos present and implement all the appropriate safety measures.
All inspections, sample-taking and analysis must be conducted by a certified asbestos surveyor who is independent of your selected asbestos removal firm.
The HSE or local authority must be advised at least fourteen days before any asbestos removal work starts, which calls for an authorised company to conduct the task. The appropriate paperwork will be provided by the asbestos removal specialist and needs to include: 1. A written statement showing how the asbestos sample will be tested and the method for ensuring the work site is clear after the dangerous substances have been removed and disposed of. 2. All associated training certificates for staff in addition to all company documentation covering risk assessments, hazardous waste disposal, work licenses and any other paperwork that are legally required. 3. A prepared work report of the regulations, guidelines and rules for the job. 4. If necessary, because of the nature of asbestos removal works, there will be a thorough check of the 4 stages of clearances and a Certificate of Reoccupation will be issued.
Sufficient PPE (personal protective equipment) will be provided for all persons accessing the site, by the asbestos removal company, and they will also ensure the correct method of disposal of any asbestos materials.
