Do you have problems with asbestos in Burnley? Asbestos is a fibrous material that is composed of naturally occurring silicates. There are six types of commercially available asbestos, with three of them being more common than the rest; you have white, brown and blue asbestos. Up until the 70s, asbestos was used in household products, insulation and building materials. Today, asbestos is mostly found in buildings with steel frame, suspended ceilings or pipe work with thermal insulation, that were built between 1950 and 1980. The problem with asbestos is that it disintegrates into very fine particles which, when inhaled, can exist for years within the lungs. This can result in lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.
In Burnley, asbestos is within the responsibility of a landlord or homeowner to know where the asbestos is located, and ensure that everyone who comes in contact with it is suitably trained. If you have not conducted a survey of your building, but are aware of the potential of asbestos being present, you must ensure that management procedures prevent work from being conducted when suspected fibrous materials are present, and that if such materials are found, your staff should stop work immediately and seek advice. Once a survey has been done and asbestos quantities and locations have been established, you have the responsibility to ensure the removal of the hazardous material.
