Often the most cost-effective solution to the existence of asbestos is to retain those materials in situ and manage the associated risks. Asbestos removal is costly and also includes the additional expense of reinstatement works including the provision of new non asbestos alternative materials such as insulation and fire protection.
It is, however, important to ensure that retained asbestos containing materials are maintained in a safe condition. On-going monitoring inspections are necessary and appropriate records need to be retained.
SB Asbestos Management offers a reinspection and monitoring service. Alternatively, we can train a suitable member of the your staff to undertake this role in-house.
