Asbestos – we all have a duty of care
Any public buildings constructed prior to the year 2000 may contain asbestos. As part of your duty of care it is vital that you understand if asbestos is present in your buildings as well as assessing the extent and condition.
All building occupants can be exposed to the dangerous fibres that are released when asbestos is disturbed – this becomes a real danger when you are carrying out any repairs, maintenance or construction projects.
BAAC have over 44 years experience in the building industry and are specialists in the management of asbestos. An initial survey will identify the presence of asbestos, assess the state and provide a plan for short and longer-term management.
In addition, BAAC are a truly independent company and will guarantee that the advice given is impartial and pragmatic. Our focus is on providing you with the most appropriate solution for your site. Removal of asbestos is very often the last resort.
