Asbestos is a material that was once widely used in a variety of construction applications, but its use has been largely phased out in recent years due to the health risks associated with exposure to asbestos fibres. Despite the health risks, asbestos is still present in many older buildings and homes, and its removal must be carefully managed to protect workers and the public from exposure.
Asbestos removal projects must be carefully planned and managed to ensure the safety of workers and the public. Bison Asbestos are specialists in project management and can assist builders in managing safety on the worksite. The first step in any asbestos removal project is to identify the presence of asbestos in the area to be removed. Once asbestos is identified, a risk assessment must be conducted to determine the level of risk associated with the removal project.
Once the risk assessment is complete, a removal plan must be developed. The removal plan will detail the specific steps that must be taken to safely remove the asbestos. The removal plan must be approved by the relevant authorities before work can begin.
Once the removal plan is approved, the asbestos removal project can begin. The work must be carried out by trained and certified workers who have the necessary personal protective equipment. The work area must be isolated from the rest of the building to prevent the spread of asbestos fibres.
After the asbestos is removed, the area must be cleaned and decontaminated. The area must then be inspected to ensure that all asbestos fibres have been removed. Once the area has been cleared, it can be safe to re-enter.
