All non-licensed and Notifiable Non-Licensed Work with asbestos must be carried out as detailed on the task sheets within the HSE resource Asbestos Essentials.
Those carrying out the work must have had the correct level of information, instruction and training, to protect themselves and others from the risks to health that exposure to asbestos causes.
Licenced work must be carried out by a Licenced Asbestos Removal Contractor (LARC).
Chess Environmental has held an HSE Licence since 2009 and regularly carries out all 3 types of work as detailed above.
We have extensive experience in Asbestos removal for both private and commercial clients, from small homes to large offices, hospitals schools and industrial estates.
We contract to various Housing Associations in both London and the Home Counties as well as three Local Authorities.
Each and every contract is undertaken with the same professionalism whether it is large, small, short term or long term.
Every contract is run by a fully qualified site supervisor and overseen by the management team.
All asbestos removal operatives have face fit certificates, medicals and are fully trained to the Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (ARCA) standards with at least one operative per crew being a qualified supervisor.
We have a specialised crew trained for High Risk Confined Space work with which we have completed contracts for Anglian Water in live sewage systems.
Any air monitoring taking place must be undertaken by an independent laboratory. Each laboratory used must be UKAS accredited to carry out the works.
We have a full carriers license, enabling us to transport smaller amounts of waste to a fully licenced Asbestos waste transfer station, if a skip is not required.
