Often the most cost effective solution to the existence of asbestos is the retention of materials and management of the risks. Removal of asbestos is costly, and includes the additional expense of reinstatement works and providing 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 client’s staff to undertake this role in-house.
