About Asbestos

Asbestos are tiny invisible fibres found in building materials.  They can be breathed in or rest on your clothing.  If these fibres are breathed in, they can cause lung diseases such as mesothelioma (cancer of the lining of the lung), asbestosis (fibrous scarring of the lungs), and asbestos-related lung cancer.

It is important to note that when asbestos is maintained in good condition and not disturbed the risk of exposure is extremely low.

Asbestos on campus is actively managed by a nominated Deputy Duty Holder and Responsible Person.

The University’s Asbestos Contractor regularly inspects the asbestos around the campus and updates the asbestos register.  The asbestos register is maintained on the Alpha Tracker.

Over time, we will continue to remove asbestos from the campus prioritising asbestos with the highest risk.

Are contractors inducted?

Contractors must be inducted at the University of Lincoln via our Estates Induction Process and must also make themselves aware of our Environmental Policy.
