Asbestos-related deaths are expected to hit a record high in the next few years as the legacy of decades of ignorance about the cancer- causing building material hits home and safety experts have warned the danger will remain high for another 10 to 15 years, with asbestos finds rising 80% in recent years as the recovering economy sees an increase in building renovations and refurbishments.
Notifications to the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) — which are mandatory when asbestos finds exceed a certain limit in a building about to undergo demolition or renovation works — increased from 164 in 2010 to 290 up to the middle of December this year.
That is the highest since the mid-2000s when a combination of the construction boom and the state-sponsored scheme to remove asbestos from schools and other public buildings saw figures rise.
Survey Inspection Software
CACL utilises state of the art software to collect its survey data. This allows the surveyor to upload the survey data instantly after the survey is complete from site remotely, to speed up report generation back in the office / laboratory.
Clearance Test Software
All Asbestos Tests, including 4 Stage Clearance, are produced and completed on-site electronically, with cerification available on completion and via your client cloud portal, before the analyst leaves the site.
CACL have built our reputation over the years by giving our customers a reliable and competitive service that they can trust and have confidence in. A service which complies with a quality assurance standard, that is accepted by the Health & Safety Authority.
