About Asbestos

Asbestos in your premises?

‘Asbestos-related diseases kill more people than road traffic accidents in the UK each year’. (Read BBC article)

Asbestos was used in a wide range of construction materials until its use was finally banned in 1999. When materials are in a poor condition or are disturbed or damaged, asbestos fibres are released into the air, which, if breathed in can cause serious lung disease including cancers’. (Asbestos: The Survey Guide pg.1)

Regulation 4 of 2012 regs states that it is the sole responsibility of owners and occupiers of non-domestic premises who have the maintenance and repair obligations to assess and manage the risks from the presence of asbestos. These requirements extend to the common areas of Housing Development and Blocks of Flats.

Under the Health and Safety Act 1974, Employers also have the responsibility to ensure that their employees are not exposed to health and safety risks. This includes exposure to asbestos.

There is no legal requirement for homeowners to have an Asbestos Survey, however, the report written by Dame Helena Shovelton for the BBC health news details her concern for the lack of awareness among those doing DIY in the home.
