Removal of Asbestos

One of the peculiarities of working in a plant engineering activity is that one’s day-to-day work does not necessarily follow one’s chosen discipline. My work was mainly concerned with controlling contractors on site (‘Resident Engineering’, as it were), ensuring compliance with terms of company orders and relevant statutory and company standards, safety aspects, and generally ensuring that everybody ended up happy... In my employment I had a number of ongoing interests, but the one of most concern (and the most time consuming) was that of asbestos removal. The following account of one particular job should be of interest to all engineers, especially those engaged in refurbishment works. L.J. Hopper
