THE danger of asbestos is well known, and its removal is recognised as a task suitable only for the most highly trained specialists.
D-W-W are among those companies in the UK recognised as specialists in the field.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) oversees this important area, while the Asbestos Licensing Unit (ALU) is responsible for ensuring licences are issued only to the most highly trained and therefore competent contractors.
D-W-W is one of those companies nationwide to have a licence approved by the ALU, to handle and remove asbestos.
This means our clients can rest assured when they employ us to deal with asbestos issues.
Asbestos is classified as a Category 1 carcinogen, with asbestos-related disease causing around 5,000 deaths every year in the UK.
Work with asbestos requires a high degree of regulatory control, and the purpose of licensing is to achieve this.
Companies licensed by the ALU can be trusted to handle your asbestos needs professionally and safely, and such teams are in constant demand.
Between 1950 and 1990 most buildings in the UK included asbestos, which now requires specialist handling to deal with the specific hazards and risk or public concern its presence creates.
AT D-W-W we can quickly and expertly remove all forms of asbestos from a site (roof sheets, floors, tiles, cladding etc) as well as dealing with all large-scale 'notifiable' asbestos removal work.
