All occupations involve varying degrees of risk. A good, well-structured health & safety plan has a singular focus; risk management. The difference between a successful safety plan and one that fails is execution. Just as hazards change from job to job, associated building wreckers recognizes that a successful safety plan must not only have guiding principles that are the same for every job we do, but also be tailored to site specific hazards.
Asbestos fibers are incredibly strong and have properties that make them resistant to heat, hence their intrinsic value for so many years. Many products are in use today that contain asbestos. Most of these are materials used in heat and acoustic insulation, fire proofing, and roofing and flooring. Unfortunately, the same qualities that made asbestos a great insulator in the past make it hazardous today. Significant health problems often develop from prolonged exposure to disturbed asbestos fibres.
