Asbestos Survey

Get in touch

Conducting an asbestos survey is a critical step in managing the risks associated with asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) that may be present within a structure. There are two primary types of asbestos surveys relevant to the safety and compliance of building management.

Management Asbestos Surveys are designed to locate the presence of ACMs in a building that could be disturbed or damaged during normal occupancy, including routine maintenance. The survey will:

  • Identify the locations of any potential ACMs

  • Determine the types of asbestos present

  • Assess the quantities of asbestos

  • Evaluate the condition of any ACMs found

  • Determine the risk to health and the necessity for remediation or management

Qualified inspection bodies, accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), are authorised to perform these surveys. An asbestos management survey is pivotal to creating a comprehensive asbestos register and an effective asbestos management plan.

Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys are necessary when a building is due for refurbishment or slated for demolition. A refurbishment survey is more intrusive than a management survey in terms of the amount of sampling required, but it serves a similar purpose:

  • Locate and describe all ACMs before any structural work begins

  • Ensure no asbestos is disturbed unknowingly, safeguarding workers and the public

Compliance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 is non-negotiable; it is the duty of the building owner or manager to protect all individuals from asbestos exposure. Before any modification work is carried out, this survey is essential to prevent the accidental release of asbestos fibres.

The significance of these surveys transcends just compliance with regulations. The vigilant execution of either survey serves as a preventative measure against asbestos exposure, the effects of which can be severely detrimental to health, leading to conditions such as mesothelioma and asbestosis. Considering the gravity of the potential health implications, a confident assurance of safety is not just beneficial, but imperative for business continuity and the well-being of all occupants.

What Occurs During a Survey?

During an assessment of premises, a competent surveyor meticulously examines each room, documenting materials suspect of containing asbestos.

Every accessible location is scrutinised, with details of potential asbestos-containing materials recorded for subsequent lab analysis.

Following the exploration, a survey report is generated, encapsulating comprehensive information, photographs of the located materials, and guidelines for safe management.

For structures undergoing significant alterations or demolition, an asbestos register is cultivated. This dynamic document integrates risk assessments and outlines prudent advice, evolving as materials are systematically removed and disposed of. Management surveys are conducted regularly to monitor the conditions of the premises, ensuring a safe environment for normal activities.

A competent professional adept in asbestos testing and managing asbestos brings not only experience but also adherence to a quality management system.

They understand the intricacies of site layout, building specifications, and site hazards. Training and quality assurance processes underpin the asbestos analysis, safeguarding those within the vicinity from potential exposure. This risk-averse approach upholds the highest standards of safety, paramount in both non-domestic and residential properties.
