Asbestos Safety & Management Reference Materials & Resources

Asbestos represents the biggest workplace health and safety threat in existence and it has been for decades. Heralded as a ‘wonder material’ during the 60s and 70s, it’s something that you’ll still find in homes and business premises across Ireland. This means that despite its banning at the end of the last century in construction, it’s still something building owners need to be acutely aware of. 

When any renovation or demolition works occur, it’s paramount that asbestos regulations are adhered to - to the letter, for the sake of everyone in the vicinity. Asbestos surveys and air quality monitoring are just two of the measures used to keep both staff and the public safe.
