Hello Richard

We train our operatives on a yearly basis, using an external company, to be able to work with non licensed asbestos. This, as you state, includes: suiting and booting, face fitted masks, use of H type hoover (if needed), risk assessments etc, wetting techniques, bagging procedures, PPE.
As a Local Authority we have a carriers license to carry the waste, using lockable container on the van, consignment notices and this is bought back to our depot where we have a designated lockable waste skip.
This process is generally used for the works you have mentioned you want to carry out but for bigger jobs we would use a company to either remove the asbestos completely or have an area scraped by them.

Regards.
Adrian.
