landfill that has a particular license allowing
it to accept asbestos. If you work on a building
with asbestos, such as an older school or office
building, then it is essential to be aware of
this substance. Those that work in the trades,
installation of appliances or surveyors should be
very careful and undertake asbestos awareness
training online or classroom.
