Increasing Asbestos Awareness And Reducing Exposure Risk With Notifiable Non-Licensable Work
Any attempt to remove can result in fibres becoming airborne and inhaled by anyone in close proximity, from home owner or tenant, company employee to public visitors, as well as building and demolition workers. Take note that you are rubbing your prostate through your anal wall and any laceration may highly cause an infection than can be very harmful and toxic to the prostate gland, your blood and the whole body and The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) estimate that there are still some four million properties around the UK, which are likely to contain hidden asbestos materials, and often encountered in a friable ( fragile and disintegrating) condition.It is frequently reported that still far too many firms seem to possess little or no asbestos awareness or training to correctly deal with the potential health risks. To minimise time and costs, the health and safety procedures are often simply ignored when existing building materials found to contain asbestos (ACMs) are dismantled and disposed of alongside standard building waste.The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, which came into force on the 6th April, updates previous asbestos regulations by implementing EU Directive 2009/148/EC, and targets changes at around three quarters of a million workers in companies involved with non-licensable asbestos work. From now on, the "Non-Licensable" category of asbestos work will be divided into two with an additional category, to be known as "Notifiable Non-Licensable Work" (NNLW).According to the HSE, " All non-licensed work is required to be carried out with the appropriate controls in place. Employers will also have an obligation for notifiable non-licensed work (NNLW)", which means they must:
- Notify work with asbestos to the relevant enforcing authority.
- Ensure medical examinations are carried out.
- Maintain registers of work (health records).
