Depend on us for safe, legally compliant, and efficient asbestos removal in Newcastle

If asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are found to be present in a building for which you are responsible in Newcastle upon Tyne or nearby, it isn’t automatically the case that such materials always need to be removed.

The decision on whether to remove ACMs, or whether to instead leave them and monitor and manage them over time, will depend on such factors as their exact condition, and the likelihood of them being disturbed in the future.

Even if you do eventually decide to have ACMs removed from your property in Newcastle, Jesmond, Gosforth, Sunderland, Durham, or another area of North East England, it is vital to bear in mind that every asbestos removal or remediation project will be different to the next one.

This underlines the importance of turning to licensed, well-trained, and knowledgeable experts to scrutinise your asbestos removal requirements, so that they can give you the benefit of a high-quality result. We have the resources and equipment to take on any and every asbestos removal challenge, including in the most specialised and demanding settings and circumstances.

Thousands of business customers have come back to us over the years, such has been their satisfaction with the comprehensiveness and fastidiousness of our asbestos removal services across Newcastle and the wider UK. Please don’t be afraid to ask us for references.

The essential things to know about asbestos removal and disposal in Newcastle

You might understandably be unsure about various key aspects of asbestos removal, remediation, and disposal in Tyne and Wear or the wider North East England. So, we have provided answers below to some of the most frequently asked questions we receive.

If you require further detail on any of the below elements or have any other questions, please feel free to contact our team.

What should you do if you find asbestos?

If you unexpectedly encounter material in your Newcastle building that you suspect contains asbestos, you should immediately cease any work you are doing in that part of the premises, and take steps to confirm whether the material does, indeed, contain asbestos.

A key requirement of the “duty to manage” asbestos, as set out under Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012), is to presume that all materials in a given property contain asbestos, unless there is strong evidence of this not being the case.

The “duty to manage” asbestos also includes taking reasonable steps to determine whether there are ACMs in the property – and if so, where those materials are located, as well as their amount and condition. This requirement is typically fulfilled by arranging to have an asbestos survey carried out at the site.

Can you remove asbestos yourself?

From a legal standpoint, there are some “lower-risk” asbestos removal tasks – such as, in certain circumstances, the removal of asbestos cement roof sheeting or small areas of textured decorative coatings – that it may be permissible for someone to do even if they do not hold a licence from the HSE.

However, there is a big difference between the questions of whether someone is legally entitled to remove ACMs from their property without a HSE licence, and whether someone should attempt their own asbestos removal.

In practice, the severe risks that asbestos can present to health – as well as the stringent regulatory requirements around how asbestos is managed – mean it could be a catastrophic decision to try to remove asbestos yourself. We would strongly advise you to arrange for licensed asbestos removal professionals to take on this specialised task for you.

Is there HSE guidance for asbestos removal available?

The HSE has put together a series of documents over the years that provide guidance and information on asbestos management and removal. Click through to read our rundown of some of the most relevant HSE publications, or consult Oracle Solutions’ own online Learning Centre for extensive advice in relation to many of these topics.

Why should I use Oracle Solutions to remove or repair my asbestos?

Our company is licensed by the HSE to carry out asbestos removal and repair operations in all their forms. This means you can rest easy in the knowledge that when you have asbestos removed from your property by our professionals, and subsequently disposed of, every aspect of our work will comply with the UK’s strict asbestos regulations. 

We are also completely insured, including holding the highest available level of professional indemnity insurance in the asbestos industry. So, when we provide you with advice, you can have the utmost confidence in it being high-quality advice.

Our professional indemnity insurance covers you for £5 million. This is in sharp contrast to many of our competitors, which often either don’t have this type of cover at all, or only have a low level of insurance.

Do you need to be licensed by HSE to work on all asbestos materials?

Technically, there are some forms of asbestos work – including some asbestos removal tasks – for which a licence from the HSE is not required.

However, there are many other types of work on asbestos materials that do need a HSE licence. Furthermore, even if a particular asbestos removal operation doesn’t strictly require a licence, we would still strongly recommend that you use a licensed contractor for this job.

A given contractor being licensed indicates that they have achieved HSE-set standards for the quality of their asbestos work. This will give you added peace of mind compared to if you had chosen an unlicensed asbestos removal firm.
