BBC One show DIY SOS had to postpone works during the show due to finding an asbestos pipe

The DIY SOS team were renovating a property in Birmingham to help a family in need, when they were forced to stop work during filming due to the discovery of an asbestos pipe.

Asbestos Pipe
The team reported to have had an asbestos survey done prior to the work being carried out. However, the pipe had been discovered when removing the floor boards.

If refurbishment/demolition works are to be carried out on a property, a fully intrusive Refurbishment/Demolition Asbestos Survey should be completed to detect any asbestos present.
The team took appropriate action, evacuating the building whilst the asbestos was removed by licensed contractors.

Removing pipe
A dutyholder who has not fulfilled their legal responsibility regarding asbestos can face prosecution by the HSE if an employee/tenant/member of the public is exposed to asbestos.
