With all plumbing work liaising with asbestos register, making sure disabled facilities such as w/c's, showers, baths are always safe to use and in service at all times where possible, and all there special requirements/needs are met at all times. The use of compression fittings where possible, but if an urgent repair necessitated the use of a blow torch, a hot works permit would be sought. Any relevant permits would be obtained for working in any restricted areas or confined spaces and for safety we would work in pairs.
