New HSE Licence to remove asbestos

Jackson Environmental are pleased to announce we have once again been granted a 3 year licence to remove asbestos by HSE (Health and Safety Executive). This continues our record of achieving the maximum renewal term since our first licence in 1991.

Asbestos Licensing is a ‘permissioning regime’ and is in addition to the general framework of health and safety law. Within a licensing regime, exemplary standards of health and safety management are expected. This means we must not only be able to carry out, and proactively manage, asbestos work safely but must also be able to demonstrate that to HSE.
