Asbestos Removal Falmouth Cornwall (TR11): Asbestos is classed as a substance harmful to health and is responsible for over 5,000 deaths a year, (Health & Safety Executive figures). If you discover asbestos in your Falmouth home or business premises, and it needs removing and disposing of, you have to confer with an expert in the asbestos industry before beginning any work. Even if you think it likely that a material is asbestos during restoration work, you must cease straight away and get hold of an asbestos removal company to inspect the area. You will need the asbestos removal company to establish if it really is asbestos in order to come up with the correct and safest method of disposal.
It could be found during the survey that you do not have to hire a HSE certified contractor for the asbestos removal. But, with asbestos fibres and dust able to do long term damage and cause prolonged impacts on people's health, it's better to be safe than sorry. There are lots of regulations in the asbestos industry with which a professional Falmouth asbestos removal contractor has to abide by in order to safely remove and dispose of any asbestos products.
HEALTH DANGERS FROM ASBESTOS
Asbestos isn't hazardous if left untouched. Asbestos can release tiny fibres or particles into the surrounding air only when scraped, cut or damaged. When these particles find their way into lungs by breathing, they can often cause a health condition called, asbestosis. These fibres or particles are also a contributary factor to the onset of 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:
- Pain in the Shoulder or Chest
- Extreme Fatigue
- Chronic Cough
- Severe Shortness of Breath
You should seek medical advice if you believe you have been in contact with asbestos over a long period of time and you are experiencing symptoms from those mentioned above.
WHAT YOU NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN YOU'RE DEALING WITH ASBESTOS
Properties and structures that were built from 1945 to 1985 are more likely to contain asbestos than those built after this period; asbestos was banned for construction purposes in Britain after 1999. Many older homes and properties could therefore have asbestos in some portion of the structure. It could be present in any section of an older structure because it was used as an insulating and fire-proofing product in many different areas.
If you do discover asbestos panels or lagging in your home in Falmouth, you don't need to go into a panic. Bear in mind that asbestos is usually only dangerous to health if damaged or disturbed. In actual fact, in some buildings it's better to leave the asbestos in place and employ steps to ensure it's not going to be damaged. If unclear about the condition of the asbestos or its potential for health issues, check with a qualified asbestos company or surveyor in Falmouth.
Not all asbestos materials are high risk and need registered asbestos removal specialists to tackle them. As a consequence of how different asbestos components are produced and their likelihood to release harmful fibres into the environment, products like asbestos insulation boards, loose fill cavity insulations and pipe lagging are a higher risk to health than asbestos cement sheets and roofing panels. Only a certified asbestos removal firm in Falmouth is able to identify, remove and get rid of any products containing asbestos, in a safe, secure and eco-friendly fashion.
If there's a need for certified asbestos removal work to be conducted then the contractor must inform the HSE or the local authority, subject to the sort of property and its usage. To limit and prevent any harmful exposure to asbestos, the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 is the legal requirement that must be followed by your authorised removal company.
You need to be aware that it is an offence punishable by law to perform anything regarded to be licensed work without having a license.
THE DISPOSAL OF ASBESTOS
It is labelled as hazardous waste, the moment any asbestos material has been removed from your property or home in Falmouth. It's essential that any asbestos hazardous waste is disposed of in the proper manner, observing the stated instructions from your local authorities. A reliable asbestos removal company in Falmouth will stick to all of the guidelines and regulations outlined by the HSE and local authority.
The Carriage of Dangerous Goods Act 2009 covers the transportation and disposal of asbestos material if it is in the form of loose fibres or is damaged and likely to release hazardous particles into the atmosphere. The CDG 2009 act states that a separate waste carrier's license is needed and that the asbestos waste has to be disposed of in a licensed hazardous waste disposal centre. By hiring a certified Falmouth asbestos removal contractor you do not have to worry about such details since they'll abide by all of the regulations and guidance; including the safe-keeping of all documents pertaining to the disposal for at least 3 years.
THE WORK PHASES
You need to affirm any presumed cases of asbestos in your Falmouth home or property before you start any actual removal work. Surveys and inspections by licensed and registered asbestos removal firms or asbestos surveyors are the only way to effectively affirm the asbestos threat in your property. If you decide not to carry out a professional asbestos inspection on an older house or property, you must assume there is asbestos present and implement all of the necessary precautions.
An asbestos removal company may endorse an asbestos surveyor to inspect your home, but this individual should be impartial and not employed by or a partner in the business.
If the survey reveals asbestos materials that require a registered contractor for removal, the Health & Safety Executive must be notified at least 14 days prior to the starting of work. The necessary documentation will be provided by the asbestos removal contractor and will include: 1. A clear method for sample testing and also clearing up after the removal work is completed. 2. All medical certificates, hazardous waste disposal training & testing, work licenses and risk assessments for the task at hand. 3. A prepared work report of the legislation, guidelines and regulations for the job. 4. If required, due to the nature of asbestos removal works, there will be a systematic check of the 4 stages of clearances and a Certificate of Reoccupation will then be provided.
All appropriate health & safety measures for the employees, including personal protective equipment (PPE), will be supplied by the asbestos removal contractor and they will make certain that all dangerous asbestos waste is safely removed to a certified waste disposal facility.
