The need for asbestos consultants
There are several buildings in the city that were set up much before the 50s. Most of them today serve as the headquarters for several large companies that have been there for ages. In such constructions, the use of asbestos was predominant. With new research, it has come to light that constant exposure to asbestos can result in several illnesses, some of which can be carcinogenic as well. There is a level of fatality as well that is associated with it. It is for this reason that an asbestos survey is carried out.
Professionals will visit your premises and look through every nook and corner to determine the presence of asbestos and its levels of decay. Based on this, they will chart out remedial measures that you can undertake to rid yourself of any asbestos related health issues and liability as far as your employees are concerned. Here is how you go about it. The first is to get an asbestos consultant who is well reputed. Speak to them in as much detail as possible about this history of your building.
An asbestos survey can be conducted on a off day for the company or when the number of footfalls in the building is at a bare minimum. A good asbestos consultant will take his own time to examine the building and determine the levels of asbestos in each spot. While he will examine everything that is in plain sight, it is also his responsibility to look in those spots that may not be too visible. This will mean going down to the basement and the attic and storage spaces and look through them with a fine toothed comb. As a layperson, the sheer experience may help you locate asbestos, but a seasoned consultant will be able to find it in places you did not think possible.
Finding a consultant is not that difficult. If you are a company that has been around for a while, you will already have an association with a reputed asbestos consultant. If not, you will easily be able to find one online or through the trade services organization in your locality. Ensure that they have their credentials and licensing intact and up to date. Else, any fallout from shoddy work will end up being your responsibility. Ask for references and check out their quality of work. Make sure that you hire nothing but the best for this important job.
