Asbestos in Schools
Once you are satisfied with the contents of the survey report the next step is to identify the asbestos materials that need be removed.
Legislation dictates how asbestos is removed, the HSE has set a limit that must never be exceeded without adequate controls. This is called a control limit and set at 0.1 asbestos fibres per cubic centimetre of air (0.1 f/cm3) averaged over a 4 hour period.
There are two variations of asbestos removal work which are dictated by the type of asbestos and the condition of the material. This element determines the controls that are required for the safe removal and disposal.

License Asbestos Removal Work for high-risk asbestos containing materials these include: Asbestos Insulation Board – Thermal Insulation (lagging) – Sprayed Coating Insulation
Non-License Asbestos Work for lower risk asbestos containing materials these include: Cement Products – Floor Tiles – Roofing Tiles/Slates – Textured Coating (Artex) – Electrical Flash Guards – Bitumen – Bakerlight Plastics
