Asbestos Awareness Courses
#9
No - not specifically > but as I say when dealing with larger construction contracts (eg Persimmons, Skanska, LaingO'Rouke, Highways Agency, Railways) i have found that they are all very keen to 'do it by the book'
>they probably would not allow any significant dust to blow across sites they had direct control over in the first place.
+...they spend time selectively removing all potential asbestos materials from buildings before demolishing them, and probably would have already tested materials or assessed them, before being crushed...and if they were clearly told of a suspicion, they would certainly act. >>> they face significant fines/potential loss of contracts for non-compliance.

as you say, things are different with private and small scale contracts > they may be some real problems there, but it is universally true that regulations are much harder to enforce (and indeed follow) for small scale developers/contractors.

There are many downsides to big corporate business :/ > but i honestly believe the bigger Construction companies have made real efforts and substantially cleaned up their act in this regard (+ general staff welfare).
>so don't be afraid to tell The Big Scary Developer of any suspicions > sadly, i don't know what the solution is for very small scale works/contractors...
