The HSE advise assessing the risk of asbestos on every job, no matter how small - you are risking your life and your livelihood if you don’t protect yourself against it. Any tradesperson could come into contact with asbestos as it remains in millions of houses, business premises and public buildings today.
The beware asbestos web app is free and easy to use. It can help you to:
- Find out if asbestos is likely to be present on the job
- Identify jobs that need a licensed contractor and find one
- Get simple information on how to protect yourself, your family and your customers.
It takes you through a selection of simple multiple-choice questions about the type of building you’re working in, the job that you’re doing, and the type of asbestos-containing material you are working on to then advise you on ways to stay safe.
