Risk Assessment for the Replacement of Asbestos Cement Water Distribution Pipes

 
Price: £18  

This report assesses the impact of Regulations on working with asbestos cement pipe, the risks associated with the various options for rehabilitation or replacement, and the impact on the environment (groundwater and landfill) of the various options. Legislation with respect to Health and Safety and the disposal of waste conflict in their requirements on dealing with asbestos-containing products. Consequently, the choice of abandonment (leading to the creation of hazardous waste) or removal (creating airborne fibres and the problem of a significant reduction in the number of available landfill sites) needs to be assessed against the risks.
