Do you have an asbestos garage that is causing you problems? Asbestos garages were a common feature of many properties built from the 1950’s when asbestos roof sheets and panels were commonly used items. You may not believe that you could find corrugated cement sheets containing asbestos, or panels with asbestos in, on any structure built until 1999! It was only in 1999 that white asbestos, the type usually found in these items was banned in the UK.
White asbestos (Chrysotile) which was the most common type of asbestos found in asbestos garage roof sheets and other panelling materials used in garages is generally accepted as being a relatively low-risk asbestos product.
It is because of this that the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), the government body who regulate work with asbestos, have made some small exemptions for allowing works with certain asbestos products to be done by people who have received formal training.
Fire Coral Ltd offer just such a course, while it is more commonly delivered to those in the trades there is absolutely no reason why home-owners cannot attend these carefully taught sessions. As a home-owner you would then be in a position to legally & safely remove low-risk asbestos products in or on your property.
We cover everything you would want to know from how to do the work, how to protect yourself and others, how to decontaminate safely and how to dispose of any waste you have generated. We can also include safe, step-by-step work methods detailing how to do the job. You will even have a professional fitting of a high-quality respirator done so you know that the mask you are wearing will protect you from asbestos fibres.
If you are still unsure then why not consider getting an asbestos removal quote from us to come and do the work for you? We appreciate that many people with these old asbestos items would rather have a professional attend to do the work. Please see our Asbestos Removal Services for a quote.
The course is called non-licensed asbestos training and you can find out more about where and when these sessions are by viewing the course information page:
