You do not need a ‘licence’ to handle products containing asbestos cement.
Work which will disturb insulation board, lagging or sprayed asbestos must be carried out by licenced asbestos contractors.
Identification is not easy as you cannot tell if a particular material contains asbestos by looking at it with the naked eye. The colour of the material does not indicate the type of asbestos, which may be present. The ONLY way to be certain if a product does contain asbestos is for a reputable laboratory to analyse it. There are a number of private laboratories, which can provide this service.
If I find asbestos what should I do?
If asbestos is found in the home, look for signs of damage or dust being released by the material. If any asbestos found is in good condition and not worn or damaged, it can be left in place. Added protection can be given by painting with emulsion paint, but remember to use an alkali resistant primer or coating for asbestos cement products. If the asbestos is damaged or giving off dust it should be carefully removed. Large amounts should only be removed by a specialist contractor. Work on sprayed asbestos, lagging or insulation board should also be left to the specialists. Smaller amounts of asbestos cement can be removed safely by following the instructions below.
Removal of small amounts of asbestos cement
Removal of small amounts of asbestos cement can be carried out safely if these guidelines are followed:
Wear a dust mask approved for asbestos obtained from safety equipment suppliers.
Wear a disposable overall.
Keep other people away from the work area.
Spread a plastic sheet under the working area to collect dust.
Remember to keep the release of asbestos dust to a minimum by wetting the material (providing there is no contact with electricity).
Remove whole sheets or components; do not break them up. Clean up settled dust with a damp cloth and seal in a plastic bag whilst still damp.
Do not use a domestic vacuum cleaner, as fine asbestos dust will pass through the filter (industrial cleaners suitable for asbestos can be hired).
Wash well afterwards.
Do not saw, drill, break, scrape, brush or screw any asbestos sheeting.
How do I dispose of asbestos?
To dispose of small quantities of dusty or loose asbestos waste, dampen it to stop dust escaping and seal it in a strong plastic bag marked ASBESTOS. Oven gloves, simmering pads and similar small items should also be sealed in a suitable plastic bag as soon as they start to show signs of wear. Large asbestos cement sheets should not be broken up but should be wrapped in polythene sheeting and marked ASBESTOS. Do not under any circumstances put waste asbestos in your dustbin or refuse chute. Many local councils have provision for the disposal of small quantities of domestic asbestos waste. You should contact your local council waste division to enquire about the facilities available. If you live in England visit the directgov website to find your local council and closest disposal facility. The enforcing authority responsible for asbestos waste is the Environment Agency. They can be contacted on their help line number 0845 9333111 or at www.environment-agency.gov.uk
