Asbestos Removal Derby

Derby asbestos services

Do you have a building where you would benefit from asbestos removal Derby services? Safeline Environmental continually work in Derby and can quickly with a minimum of disruption assess your building for asbestos and remove/dispose of your asbestos.

With a population of 250,000 Derby is handily placed in the centre of the UK for transportation, which is one reason Toyota set up their car manufacturing plant at Burnaston, southwest of Derby. We provide asbestos removal services in all areas of Derby including Allenton, Boulton, Chaddesden, Mickleover, Normanton, Oakwood, Osmaston and Spondon, etc. Also, use our services across Derbyshire and the Peak District.

Is asbestos exposure a problem in Derby?

The honest answer is that asbestos exposure is a problem across the UK including Derby, here are three recent news stories about asbestos in Derby:

  • Labourer dies from 1960s asbestos exposure at Drakelow Power Station - Derby Telegraph
  • Derby builder (aged 66) dies from 1980s asbestos exposure - Derby Telegraph
  • Derby railway worker dies from asbestos-related illness - Derby Telegraph

As you can see from the above news stories, asbestos is killing people now that had exposure 50+ years ago. This is because asbestos-related deaths occur over the medium-long term. Asbestos was banned as long ago as 1999, but that does not mean asbestos exposure stopped in 1999!

As each year passes more buildings are being demolished or having asbestos removed, so asbestos levels are gradually falling but the issue of new asbestos-related illnesses will be with us for many decades to come.

Why does asbestos kill?

Asbestos is called the “hidden killer” by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE). When disturbed microscopic asbestos fibres become airborne they can be breathed in by people in the vicinity and get lodged in the lungs. These fibres over time can develop conditions such as lung cancer, COPD, asbestosis, mesothelioma, etc.

Detecting and removing asbestos

Asbestos can be safely detected and removed by qualified professionals (such as Safeline). Some of the typical approaches would be:

  • Asbestos survey – visit the building(s) to detect asbestos and provide information such as contaminated areas, the quantity of asbestos, condition/type of asbestos and asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) on the site
  • Asbestos removal – the safe removal of asbestos from a building. This is by trained staff with proper PPE, appropriate equipment and also sealed hazardous waste bags
  • Asbestos waste disposal – the disposal of hazardous asbestos waste to licensed asbestos disposal sites

It’s important to develop an asbestos management plan to professionally manage the full lifecycle of asbestos management.
