Understanding Asbestos in Garages

Asbestos is a hazardous material found in some garages, particularly in roofing and wall panels. Recognising the types of asbestos and the health risks associated with each is essential for safe handling and removal.

Types of Asbestos and Their Risks

Asbestos in garages may include chrysotile, amosite, and crocidolite, known for their use in construction materials and significant health risks such as mesothelioma and lung cancer when disturbed.

Identifying Asbestos in Garage Structures

Professional assessments are necessary to determine the presence of asbestos, especially in structures built before 2000. These materials are typically found in corrugated cement sheets and other common garage components.

Legislation and Legal Requirements in the UK

Handling asbestos in the UK is subject to the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, requiring licensed professionals for removal to ensure compliance and safety.

Safe Removal of Asbestos Garages

Removing asbestos from garages involves stringent safety protocols. Employing the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) and engaging professionals are key components of a safe removal process.

Necessary Safety Precautions and PPE

The use of appropriate PPE, including respiratory protective equipment, disposable coveralls, gloves, goggles, and footwear, is mandatory to protect against asbestos exposure.

Professional Removal Vs. DIY

While professional removal is recommended due to the expertise and equipment required, DIY removal poses significant risks and is generally not advised.
