Ship owners and ports are no exceptions to asbestos dangers and risks. You may be surprised to discover just how many ships and port buildings contain high levels of asbestos that must be managed properly, especially for operational ships. Marine settings require a different approach to asbestos surveys due to their unique design and construction. Ships are often subjected to hostile environmental conditions such as shocks, vibration, rolling, pitching, swaying and slamming.
Shortly before the festive period, our team headed over to Brunswick Dock in Liverpool to perform some routine asbestos surveys and checks on the old buildings on the dock. Originally built in 1827, the docks are an incredible part of the local history, and our team always love working on these great historical buildings.
Fibre Safe works closely with many clients within the city of Liverpool, from Lime Street Station to The Playhouse Theatre. The Liverpool City Council and the MRWA (Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority) don’t provide any asbestos-related services, so they recommend hiring a private contractor like Fibre Safe.
At Fibre Safe, we provide top-class asbestos survey services to the Wirral, Liverpool and North Wales areas and further afield in the North West of England.
