ABLE Renews HSE Asbestos Licence

Able UK, the leading North East based waste management, demolition and marine decommissioning company, has successfully renewed its 2021 Asbestos Licence with the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).

Able UK Executive Chairman Peter Stephenson said the renewal with the HSE demonstrated the company’s commitment to deliver the highest possible standards in all aspects of handling the removal and disposal of asbestos safely.

He explained “We have long experience of the challenges in dealing with asbestos, for example in demolition, site reclamation and marine decommissioning and we fully support the work of the Asbestos Licensing Unit (ALU) to ensure that all operations are carried out to the best possible safety and environmental standards.”

The ALU’s role is to set national standards for assessment and to monitor the work of licence-holders across Great Britain by collating all the information received from all site visits and assessments.  It then builds a performance history to inform the decision to renew/issue a licence to a particular licence-holder.
