If you have control of a premises, are a manager, landlord, duty holder or responsible for maintenance and repair, you are required to protect others who work or use the premises from asbestos exposure. To comply with the law, you should undertake:

  • risk assessment of all sampled or presumed asbestos containing materials.
  • written plan on how to manage the risk of the asbestos within the premises.

This is not an exhaustive list, just a brief summary of actions to be taken to ensure you are compliant with asbestos legislation.

With over 3000 asbestos products, there is a high possibility of asbestos being present in buildings built before the year 2000. For further information, see our Asbestos in Building page.

Asbestos poses a serious health risk and when disturbed or damaged asbestos fibres become air-borne. Once inhaled, these fibres get into the respiratory system and can cause various fatal respiratory diseases, for which there is no cure. For further information, see our Health Risks page.

Our Services include a comprehensive Asbestos Risk Management Service to ensure you comply with all current laws and regulations and maintain compliance all year round.

Client Testimonials

  • I had a asbestos survey carried out recently on my brother in laws pre fab for his and his families peace of mind. I was totally unaware of what to expect, but I need not have worried as Stone Asbestos was helpful, approachable and patient, always ready to answer and explain any questions or queries. Their report was thorough and was understandable with plenty of pictures to accompany the narrative. Any questions that came to mind after the report had been sent were answered with an easy to understand explanation and advice. All in all a worry free experience. Thank you Stone Asbestos.
