||Asbestos removal demolition and soil remediation operations involve hazards for operators, neighbourhood populations and the environment. To limit these hazards, it is necessary to carry out a preliminary analysis of the existing situation, in view of the fact that regulations require that the possible presence of toxic substances such as lead or asbestos be verified. This analysis allows the operating procedure to be defined (involve specialised companies, set up a confined area, select personal protective equipment). Other aspects covered in this collection of articles on demolition work: permissions and regulatory aspects; training of demolition specialists; sorting and recycling of waste streams; treatment of polluted soils.
