Asbestos Removal (non-licensed) - artex

Most higher risk work with asbestos must only be done by a licensed contractor but at SWH we are able to undertake the safe removal of non-licensed material and have fully trained operatives who have many years of working with asbestos material. 

EXAMPLES OF NON-LICENSED WORK WITH ASBESTOS

  • Cleaning up small quantities of loose/ fine debris containing ACM dust (where the work is sporadic and of low intensity, the control limit will not be exceeded and it is short duration work)
  • Drilling of textured decorative coatings for installation of fixtures/fittings
  • Encapsulation and sealing-in work on asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) that are in good condition



    To be exempt from needing a licence the work must be: 

  • Sporadic and of low intensity – to be considered sporadic and of low intensity the concentration of asbestos in the air should not exceed 0.6f/cm3 measured over 10 minutes

  • Carried out in such a way that the exposure of workers to asbestos will not exceed the legal control limit of 0.1 asbestos fibres per cubic centimetre of air (0.1 f/cm3) (averaged over a four hour period)

  • Meet at least one of the four following conditions:

    1. It is a short non-continuous maintenance task, with only non-friable materials (friability describes how likely an ACM is to release asbestos fibres when worked on, so non-friable materials will only release a small number of fibres during work); or

    2. It is a removal task, where the ACMs are in reasonable condition and are not being deliberately broken up, and the asbestos fibres are firmly contained within a matrix, eg the asbestos is coated, covered or contained within another material, such as cement, paint or plastic; or

    3. It is a task where the ACMs are in good condition and are being sealed or encapsulated to ensure they are not easily damaged in the future; or

    4. It is an air monitoring and control task to check fibre concentrations in the air, or it’s the collection and analysis of asbestos samples to confirm the presence of asbestos in a material.
