ASBESTOS IN SOIL

Asbestos can be found in soil, aggregate or spoil. It can be difficult to spot, but the impact of not identifying and risk assessing a site can lead to HSE involvement, as well as possible criminal prosecution and civil claims.

Asbestos can find its way into made ground and soils in many ways, such as historic demolition of buildings or fly-tipped waste to name just two.

Asbestos in made ground soils is mostly immobile, although when contaminated ground soils are disturbed, and fibres are more likely to be released. These asbestos fibres can be inhaled and potentially cause respiratory diseases.

RB Asbestos have helped a significant number of clients to minimise the costs and time associated with handling asbestos in soil. We can carefully guide you through the approach, ensuring you fully comply with all the relevant asbestos legislation in the UK.
