Why is asbestos more of a problem than usual when damaged by fire and flood?
Most of the time asbestos fibres are linked within a solid matrix, this is to prevent any fibres being airborne. Once the material is exposed to fire or flood it damages and deteriorates the solid matrix. This then causes the asbestos fibres to be released everywhere within the building and contaminates everything it touches.
How can Oracle Solutions help?
We will need to assess the level of risk and make the area safe for you and everyone being exposed. Our emergency response team will go to site to inspect the area, take samples to all areas effected and contain areas of concern in a safe manner. We will provide you with the best course of action to take, ensuring it is cost effective and a solution to rectify the problem.
How quickly can Oracle Solutions deal with the situation?
As soon as we have received your initial call for help, we will organise an investigation and control risk usually within 2 hours, depending on the location. We offer the fastest response time in the industry. Once the areas are contained and we identify what the needs are, the HSE will require a 14 day Statutory Notification. Don’t worry, Oracle Solutions’ expert team of consultants are on hand for you and can talk to the HSE to apply for a waiver to the statutory 14 day notification. The results are we deal with the risk as quickly as possible for your safety and others.
