Asbestos is a naturally occurring product. It was used extensively in the UK during post war house building. UK Asbestos use started to be phased out in the 1980’s and was fully banned in 1999.
Whilst asbestos can no longer be brought into the UK, vast amounts of asbestos remain in many buildings. Building owners are required by law to ensure that asbestos risks within their properties are managed. Asbestos products that are in good condition present a negligible risk to health.
Asbestos in our buildings is managed by our Property Safety Team, who are happy to answer any concerns that you have. You can contact the team on 020 8778 6699 or via email@example.com.
