Welcome to our new website
We're delighted to welcome you to our our new company website.
After several years of poor or inadequate asbestos resources available online we believe the time as come for a more slicker advanced user friendly website.
So, what new?
We've used our knowledge and experience within the asbestos industry to deliver refreshing content and we've tied it all in with our social media channels, as well as introducing a fresher and more dynamic 'Blog' section which we will keep you informed on what were up to and any useful industry insight we think is worth sharing.
The biggest innovation, however, is the user experience. We’ve developed an all singing new project planning function. The new site’s project planner and integration with social media will not only simplify the initial process for our clients, it will allow us to attract a broader range of clients online.
We feel the site gives us a fantastic platform to build on as we aim, as always, to continue to develop our service – so watch this space.
We know how busy you are but if you have a minute, have a browse and see what you think. We’d welcome any feedback and thoughts.
Asbestos hazard delay's dust removing London tube train until 2017
The launch of a specifically designed London tube has been delayed until 2017 or even later in order to allow for the Transport for London (TFL) to plan and carry out the removal of any asbestos containing materials from the Underground rail network according to information obtained by campaign group Clean Air in London (CAL).
The new tunnel cleaning train is fitted with large vacuum nozzles which clean the tube tunnel as the train passes through. It was previously scheduled for launch on the London Underground network in late 2013 in order to combat melt dust levels within the Underground.
Transport for London (TFL) confirmed the main reason for the delay was because of the requirement to remove asbestos-containing materials on the Underground network which could be potentially disturbed by the tube cleaning train, releasing harmful asbestos fibres into the atmosphere of the tunnels.
Over the years, TFL has recorded the location of asbestos-containing materials but has removed identified items "only when necessary”.
How-ether TFL said unless "certain classes" of asbestos-contatining materials (ACM’s) are removed from the Underground, the tube cleaning train would be ‘inoperable across 98 per cent of the London Underground network’, meaning the tube cleaning dust removing project would be “no longer viable”
Asbestos discovered in 2700 illegal cigarettes
Two officers from the councils trading standards team have made a shocking discovery at a retail shop in Hounslow, with Milo the sniffer dog on the job he helped uncover nearly 3000 highly dangerous fake cigarettes in Hounslow.
The spaniard and his pal India, a black labrordor, sniffed 2700 counterfeit cigarettes and 22 packs of 50g rolling tobacco at shops in Central Hounslow.
Councillor Richard Foote, Hounslow's cabinet member for community safety said: "Fake cigarettes can be highly dangerous, even more than branded ones, as the smoker doesn't know what's in them.
"Some of the fake cigarettes picked up by trading standards teams across the country have contained asbestos, mould, dust, dead flies, rat droppings and human excrement.
"Many also contain much higher levels of toxic ingredients such as tar, nicotine, carbon monoxide, lead, cadmium and arsenic than genuine brand-name cigarettes."

The operation was carried out last week by two officers from the council's trading standards team, working with the dogs. At this stage no arrests have been made but investigations are ongoing.
