We are pleased to confirm the renewal of our 3-year asbestos license.
Asbestos is classified as a category 1 carcinogen with asbestos related disease causing 5,000 deaths every year in the UK. Work with asbestos requires a high degree of regulatory control and the purpose of licensing is to achieve this.
The HSE expects license holders to meet exemplary standards in all aspects of health and safety beyond asbestos legislation alone.
The renewal of our 3 year asbestos license is the maximum period a license may be granted for by the HSE and demonstrates that we have the necessary skills, competency, knowledge and expertise to work with asbestos, together with excellent health and safety management systems.
