Amianto Services becomes major North West player in Asbestos Removal
Liverpool based Amianto Services has been granted a Full Asbestos Removal Licence by UK government agency the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
Already delivering Non-licensed Asbestos Removal to HSE standards, this new Full Asbestos Removal licence means Amianto Services will now be able to conduct high risk asbestos removal, helping to rid our domestic and public buildings of potentially dangerous asbestos materials when they are discovered.
The use of asbestos has been common since the mid-19th century and it was not until 1999 that a total ban was imposed. Asbestos is responsible for over 5000 deaths every year and can take anywhere between 15-60 years for symptoms to develop after exposure. It’s essential it is treated seriously and by licensed experts like Amianto Services who can carry out removals safely and efficiently.
Licensed Asbestos removal includes asbestos sprayed coatings, asbestos pipe insulation and asbestos insulating board. These removal works are high risk. Rigorous health and safety management systems have been put in place including ensuring staff are trained to the highest standards.
Tony Loughran, Managing Director of Amianto Services said:
Achieving this license has been a major undertaking involved interviews, assessments of our management, training, competence and knowledge. I’m delighted we have achieved every requirement and can now carry out licensed Asbestos Works. I would like to thank everyone involved in helping us secure this license and I look forward to offering our new services to current and future clients.
Terry Carroll, Board Director of the Carroll Group said:
Tony and the Amianto Services team have worked hard over the past year to achieve this licence. The benefits of a quality Asbestos Removal company in the local area and the North West are numerous and support the growth of the Carroll Group as we continue to offer more quality construction associated services.
