In years gone past we have trained our operatives to enable them to work on non-licensed asbestos including suiting, booting and sealing the room etc however this was stopped for a number years ago when our asbestos manager advised
1) We could no longer carry double bagged coveralls etc within the vans as that was counted as carrying waste asbestos so would require a carries licence. This was the same with the H Class hoovers
2) From 2015 the relevant enforcing authority had to be informed of all Notifiable Non-Licensed Work.
3) We were advised that we would have to start yearly health screening for all operatives who worked on the Non Licensed asbestos for 30 years even after employment finished.
Generally speaking now if we have any intrusive works where there is artex we will just arrange for a gel and scrape.
