Asbestos is a category 1 carcinogen, and is responsible for over 4000 deaths each year in the UK
alone, and as such, all works with asbestos is strictly controlled by the Health & Safety Executive
(HSE). The majority of works with asbestos are subject to a contractor holding a license from the
HSE, who must demonstrate exemplary management standards, arrangements, and technical
knowledge to carry out works with asbestos containing materials.
