Asbestos is a natural and fibrous material, consisting of natural mineral fibres belonging to the silicates and mineralogical series of serpentine and amphiboles. The first uses of asbestos date back to the 18th century and, over time, it has been used in various fields: paper, chemical, transport and cosmetics industries.
With Law No. 257 of 12 March 1992, Italy banned asbestos, given the extremely dangerous nature of the material and, only two years later, in 1994, the Minister of Health issued the “Rules on the cessation of asbestos use” with D.M. 06.09.1994.
Asbestos, friable or non-friable, is subject to remediation by removal, encapsulation or confinement.
HOW DOES THE PORCARELLI GROUP INTERVENE FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF ASBESTOS
In order to assess which type of intervention is most appropriate to perform in the presence of asbestos, a first visual inspection of the asbestos product, its location and the state of conservation of the material is carried out. In this way it is also possible to identify potential risk factors involving both the surrounding environment and people exposed to a possible risk of inhaling asbestiform fibres.
We take care of the removal of:
Thanks to our team of collaborators and experts, taking care of the bureaucratic process and correspondence with the territorially competent Supervisory Body, we carry out asbestos remediation, on public and private structures.
WHAT SHOULD BE DONE IF ASBESTOS IS SUSPECTED?
The first step should be to plan an inspection programme for the structure involved and then to sample the materials. To do this, you must contact qualified companies registered in the National Register of Environmental Managers (Albo Nazionale Gestori Ambientali) in category 10a for compact asbestos-containing material, such as our Logistica Ambientale.
The staff of the companies used for these interventions must be authorized in accordance with Article 10 of Law No. 257/92 and Article 10 of D.P.R. 8/08/1994, or be in possession of the qualifications issued by the Regions or Autonomous Provinces attesting the participation in specific courses and the passing of the final verification. These courses are:
