The asbestos industry is one of the most highly regulated and rightly so.
The life-threatening risk of prolonged exposure to asbestos particles is well documented. As more is discovered about asbestos, additional regulations are put in place to protect the public, and of course those involved in its removal.
Twenty years ago less was known and regulations were not so strict, which allowed working practices to be less stringent than they are today. Where asbestos stripping has been undertaken a number of years ago it is quite likely that asbestos debris is hidden behind or under newer material or may have been missed altogether. At Independent we have the experience to recognise these tell-tale signs immediately and advise on the best solution.
