Dickinson M&S Corrosion Ltd provides highly specialised, safe, secure, reliable and efficient Asbestos Abatement Services. The company has a proven track record on executing asbestos surveys and removals in accordance to governmental regulations and international standards. Our experts, are highly skilled and specialised with vast experience in all types of asbestos abatements. The handling of asbestos must be performed with great care due to the toxic nature of the substance and carcinogenic classification. It’s important to know that when asbestos is in good condition, it does not usually present a hazard. However, worn or damaged asbestos poses a great risk to the health and safety of humans as fibers may flake off and become airborne. At that point, it’s possible for anyone in the vicinity to inhale these toxic fibers, which in turn, can become embedded in the chest. Years later, victims of asbestos exposure can develop serious asbestos-related diseases, such as asbestosis or mesothelioma.
