Asbestos removal and encapsulation

There are 3 different types of Asbestos Remediation, Non-Licenced Work, Notifiable Non Licenced Work (NNLW) and Licenced Work.

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).

Asbestos First has held an HSE Licence since 1988 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.

Asbestos removal 1Each 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 also achieved the Site Audit Accreditation Scheme quality assurance award from ARCA every year since its inception in 2003.

Air monitoring must be undertaken by an independent laboratory. Each laboratory used must be UKAS accredited to carry out the works.
