IES – Asbestos Removal & Management Services

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral, commercially mined and used extensively in an estimated half a million buildings and products within the UK for its properties such as heat and chemical resistance, low thermal conductivity, flexibility and high tensile strength. Exposure to Asbestos fibres through inhalation can cause irreversible damage to the lungs and it remains the UK’s biggest occupational killer with typically a 15 to 60 years gap from first exposure to diagnosis. This is why professional Asbestos management is essential.

Licensed by the Health and Safety Executive (refer to HSE Asbestos website for verification ), IES prides itself on its ability to plan and control all aspects of its operations in dealing with this hazardous material. It applies the most up to date and efficient techniques in Asbestos abatement and an approach that is designed to minimise disruption to the client and the environment in which the work is being carried out.

Managing Asbestos in a Variety of Different Environments

A significant portion of contracts undertaken by IES are carried out within highly sensitive areas such as private and public housing, schools, universities, hospitals, hotels and retail outlets. Other areas of operation include construction and demolition sites, factories and warehouses managed by some of the leading companies within the UK. Each time, IES are able to adapt to their client’s requirements to achieve a workable solution that results in the job completion with the least amount of inconvenience possible, thus maximising customer satisfaction. Managing and removing Asbestos is our area of expertise, so you can rest assured that the safety of your workplace or home is in capable hands.

IES recognise that maintaining such high levels of service can only be achieved by staff investment. The IES workforce is trained to the highest standards from senior management level through to site operatives. Each contract is appointed a dedicated team to ensure a seamless operation from inception to completion. Site audits are carried out on a weekly basis by senior management as well as external auditing bodies.

  • Why can asbestos be harmful to my health?
    When materials that contain asbestos are disturbed or damaged, fibres are released into the air. When these fibres are inhaled, they can cause serious diseases. These diseases will not affect you immediately; they often take a long time to develop, but once diagnosed, it is often too late to do anything. This is why it is important that you protect yourself now and contact IES who are Asbestos specialists before starting any projects that may disturb Asbestos.
  • How do I know if there’s asbestos in my building?
    Asbestos can be found in any industrial or residential building built or refurbished before the year 2000. It is in many of the common materials that were used in the building trade that you may come across during your work. It is difficult to identify Asbestos, as it is often mixed with other materials. You should contact IES who are Asbestos specialists to carry out an inspection to identify if Asbestos materials are present within your building.
  • Are you accredited?
    In short, Yes! IES holds all the licenses and accreditations required to work safely and compliantly with asbestos. IES have held a full license to work with all types of Asbestos materials since 1991. The license is issued by the Health and Safety Executive and this can be verified via the HSE Asbestos website. IES also hold an upper tier waste carrier licensed issued by the Environment Agency for the safe transportation of hazardous materials. Alongside this IES hold ISO:9001 and ISO:14001 quality and environmental accreditation as well as safety standards such as Chas, CSCS and Constructionline. IES maintains liability insurance cover of £10 million.
