Benefits of Using an Asbestos Consultant
Whether you’re a business renovating new premises, a landlord carrying out major repairs on an investment property or simply a homeowner making your new place well and truly your own, it’s incumbent upon you to acknowledge the potential threat to your health that is asbestos. For businesses, it’s your legal responsibility to adhere to the government’s asbestos regulations. However, without the aid of an expert Asbestos Consultant, it can be much harder to ensure that you are absolutely compliant. And even harder to rid the property of asbestos entirely if it is found.

Here we’ll look at some of the benefits of Using an Asbestos Consultant to protect your business, your property and the people who work within it…

They can help you to devise and enact an asbestos management plan

Even if you’re not the owner of a property, you are still legally accountable for it if you are the duty holder. And under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, this means that you have a legal obligation to manage any materials that contain asbestos under your control (i.e. on your premises).

In many cases, this cannot be done overnight. An Asbestos consultant can help by drafting up an asbestos management platform and putting it into action in a way that ensures both legal compliance and the safety of your workforce. A consultant will carry out a comprehensive asbestos survey of the property after which an asbestos management plan will be put into place.

An asbestos management plan details who is responsible for asbestos management and how any materials containing this potentially harmful mineral will be managed.

Their services are scalable to suit your needs and budget

Like any business owner, cost is an important factor for you. The great thing about an Asbestos Consultant is that their services are scalable in line with the size of your business, your premises and, of course, your budget.

This helps you to remain compliant and ensure the wellbeing of your team without bottlenecking your cash flow.

They can help to assess and remove asbestos completely

If asbestos is found on your premises, you are within your legal rights to attempt to either contain or remove asbestos-containing materials yourself. Nonetheless, this is inherently risky. Not only can asbestos be inhaled accidentally during the removal process, but it can also be hard to ascertain for sure whether your efforts have completely removed the asbestos.

An asbestos consultant can help you to ensure that all traces are either removed or contained so that your business can get on with doing what it does best.

They make compliance easy and keep your workforce safe

Remaining compliant is an extremely high priority for businesses. But they also understand that they have a duty of care to their staff. An asbestos consultant can help you to navigate the complexities of asbestos compliance with ease while safeguarding the wellbeing of your most important resource… your staff.

If you need the peace of mind that comes from being 100% asbestos-free, get in touch with us today.
