AMC commercial asbestos services help business owners to successfully manage their asbestos. Not only do we help them to meet their obligations under asbestos law, we also help them prevent life threatening diseases from impacting their staff and visitors.
If you are a building owner, or are contracted to the maintenance and repair of the site, it’s your responsibility as dutyholder to manage any asbestos risk.
This duty covers all non-domestic premises, industrial and commercial sites, including: warehouses, offices, shops and factories. It also covers public buildings like hospitals, schools, religious buildings, leisure centres, museums and libraries.
Common areas in residential buildings also fall under these duties. Any common areas like garages, hallways and laundry rooms all must be maintained by the building owner, unless a legal contract states otherwise.
If your building or refurbishment projects were completed before 2000, it’s likely there could be asbestos present. Asbestos is a durable, fire resistant material that was commonly used in commercial buildings.
If you think asbestos could be present in your premises, it’s your responsibility to make sure it doesn’t present a health hazard. Remember, undamaged asbestos is perfectly safe; it only becomes dangerous when it is disturbed and fibres can be released.
Unless you’ve got experience working with asbestos, don’t try and inspect it for yourself. Disturbing or breaking the asbestos could cause fibres to be released. An asbestos expert will be able to discover the state of any asbestos in your premises and advise on the best course of action to manage it.
