More than 2,500 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma every year, but symptoms can take up to 40 years to develop. This fatal form of cancer typically lies dormant in victims’ bodies for any number of years after exposure to asbestos; the cheap and plentiful building material which was in common use throughout the 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s in schools, factories and office buildings. If and when unsettled, it releases microfibers which are inhaled by a workforce and take up residence in their lungs.
Although the use of asbestos-containing materials was outlawed in the 1990s, there is the possibility that it is still present within a building built or refurbished before 2000.
To ensure the high quality of our staff, and guarantee you can have confidence in the asbestos removal works we do, our removal team undertake annual refresher training courses. These courses test their knowledge of asbestos and confirm that their understanding about safe asbestos removal is up to date so that they are working to the required standards.
