Jackson Environmental Issued New Licence to Remove Asbestos 4

Jackson Environmental Issued New Licence to Remove Asbestos 

We are pleased to announce Jackson Environmental have been granted another 3-year licence to work with asbestos by The Health & Safety Executive (HSE). This continues our run of consecutive maximum term licenses since 1991.

Asbestos Removal – A “permissioning regime” 

Regulation 8 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 requires an employer to hold a licence, granted by HSE, in order to undertake “licensable work with asbestos”

Asbestos Licensing is a “permissioning regime”.  One of only a very few that operate in the UK. Permissioning regimes such as asbestos licensing are only considered where the work activities involve significant hazard, risk or public concern. Asbestos is classified as a category 1 carcinogen, with asbestos related disease causing around 5000 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.

High Standards

Such a fantastic record demonstrates the consistently high standards set by our workforce and is a testament to their experience, hard work and commitment.

Jackson Environmental continue to deliver an exceptional service at the forefront of the asbestos removal industry. We are licensed to undertake the full range of asbestos removal and remediation works. Visit our Our Services page to find out more.

New HSE Licence to Remove Asbestos

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.
