Many properties, whether commercial or residential, have areas that may contain Asbestos which if managed correctly poses no immediate risk to health. However, over time, or if the area is disturbed, asbestos can become dangerous as it can potentially cause life limiting illnesses such as Asbestosis and Mesothelioma.
Used for much of the twentieth century for building work and to produce many products, Asbestos was originally thought of as an excellent and versatile material due to its resistance to heat and excellent binding properties. However, as time passed and people started to become ill, the risks associated with Asbestos started to become clear and eventually the use of asbestos was stopped completely in 1999.
If you are the owner of a non-domestic property, it is your legal responsibility to monitor and manage any asbestos within your building. On top of this, if the property was built before 2000, there is a high chance that at least one area contains asbestos.
As Asbestos can be difficult to identify and because of the risks associated with this substance, if you are unsure if your building contains Asbestos it’s a very good idea to contact an Asbestos consultant to ask them to carry out a survey.
