Leisure & Retail

If asbestos is located on your premises, it’s important to take appropriate action to protect both staff and visitors within the leisure and retail industry.

Leisure and retail facilities can often be run from older buildings and sometimes accommodate hundreds of people at one time. If asbestos is found, this can threaten the health of employees and members of the public, therefore it must be dealt with discreetly and efficiently by a team of specialists.

Asbestos is commonly found within farm building materials and equipment, presenting a risk to staff and livestock.

Due to the nature of the materials used in farm buildings, such as corrugated roofing on barns, asbestos is often present and can risk the lives of farmers and their animals. In order to limit these risks asbestos encapsulation services can be used to ensure disturbances are avoided and fibres remain enclosed in a specific area.

Public sector buildings are usually the most common developments built using asbestos-containing materials.

If buildings such as libraries, museums, and town halls aren’t properly assessed for the presence of asbestos, building managers can put hundreds of members of the general public at risk.

Domestic & Social Housing

Asbestos can often be found in many houses built before the year 2000, and this can pose health risks to residents if disturbed or damaged.

Social housing tenants and residents of domestic housing should feel safe from the dangers of asbestos in their own homes.

Many warehousing facilities originated in the 1980s and were built using asbestos-containing materials which continue to pose a risk to staff and inventory.

Common warehouse building materials such as corrugated roofing and asbestos cement remain within facilities at risk of being disturbed. These possible contaminated areas must be managed and met with a suitable solution to ensure operations can continue and both employees and stock remain protected from asbestos.
