First aid equipment will be ready to use at all times and will be properly maintained and inspected at regular intervals according to specifications and includes the following:
- Powerful absorption machine with integrated HEPA absolute filter
- Face respirator and filters for protection against asbestos fibers
- Soft absorbent towels.
- PE waste bags.
- Cutting tools, wrenches, electric pumps, straps, etc.
- Fire extinguishers.
- First aid box.
- Bottles of clean water.
- Sprayers with PVA-Water mixture
The personnel of SUK that performs the asbestos removal works are well trained and experienced to face any risks that may arise during the execution of the works. These works concern asbestos cement materials and NOT friable asbestos which means that there is a small percentage of asbestos fibers (about 15%) contained in the slab material and which are encapsulated into the cement.
The number of fibers that may be released during the works, even in the worst-case scenario, will be very small because there will be an effort made to not use cutting tools. In fact, considering that the first aid measures will be in place for the protection of the workers during the execution of the works, the risk of fibers leaking and causing an accident is almost nonexistent.
