Shield Asbestos Recognised as one of the UK’s leading asbestos; removal, surveying & consultancy and training contractors, we have been working in this field for over 30 years. We have branches across the UK, servicing both public and private sector clients, from individual householders to multinational organisations.

Shield Asbestos holds a full three-year Health and safety Executive (HSE) licence to undertake work with asbestos. We pride ourselves on working closely with our clients to ensure that we achieve their desired result in the most practicable way possible.
All asbestos removal projects are undertaken in accordance with current UK Legislation and Asbestos Regulations, HSE Approved Codes of Practice and Guidance Notes. Rigorous internal and external auditing of our asbestos operations on site ensures that all safety and quality control requirements are achieved.
Shield is well-qualified to lead your project. We are a Type C inspection body, holding UKAS accreditation to ISO/IEC 17020 (EN45004) for the surveying of asbestos in premises. We have a wealth of experience as Asbestos Consultants and are UKATA accredited for asbestos training. Our sampling and testing service is carried out only in UKAS accredited third-party laboratories.
We can give guidance, training, sampling and advice on the management of hazardous materials, not only in premises but also on board ships. With Surveying Asbestos Consultants and offices based in Bristol, Cornwall and Southampton and surveys carried across the UK, we have the resources to provide asbestos consultancy on a national basis.
