Asbestos in Soils

Rhodar along with our sister Group company, Bagnall, have undertaken several high profile asbestos land decontamination projects in 2014 and 2015.

Current best practice procedures for such work is constantly evolving. Specific code of practice is being developed by several bodies and research associations under the banner of the JIWG (Joint Industry Working Group) incorporating Ciria, CL:AIRE, EIC the EA and HSE. Giving greater clarity and uniformity as to how to best deal with the numerous issues that asbestos in soil presents.

The JIWG, EA and HSE hope to have published a draft version for consultation of ‘Asbestos in Soils Code of Practice’ by mid-2015.

Current information can be sought via:

CIRIA (Construction Industry Research and Information Association). The CIRIA ‘C733 Asbestos in soil and made ground: a guide to understanding and managing risks’ was written to create a best practice scenario aligned with what we already do.
