Are you managing the asbestos hazards in your building?
Asbestos is the biggest industrial killer we know in the UK today and, most worrying of all, it is in buildings around us. The HSE has estimated that the number of annual deaths from asbestos related diseases will rise to 10,000 by 2025 – compared to around 3,000 in 1996.
PTL can make sure that the asbestos in your building is safe with our asbestos surveys. For more info, get in contact with us!

The use of all asbestos containing materials was not banned until 1999. This means any building built or refurbished before the year 2000 could contain asbestos.
Any worker liable to disturb asbestos while performing their normal everyday work is required to be trained. Every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to those employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos during the course of their work.
The duty to manage asbestos is directed at those who manage non-domestic premises: the people with responsibility for protecting others who work in such premises, or use them in other ways, from the risks to ill health that exposure to asbestos causes.
