Looking for comprehensive asbestos survey specialists?
As asbestos survey specialists, our comprehensive asbestos reports will provide essential thorough information for employers, asbestos contractors and others involved workers who may be at great risk from exposure to asbestos.
Asbestos was finally completely banned from use in Nov 1999 five years ahead of the European deadline. Chrysotile had been the only type of asbestos permitted in the UK since amosite and crocidolite were banned in 1985. Even though the use of Asbestos was diminished running up to 1999 it is sensible to err on the side of caution regarding all properties built or extended/refurbished up to 1999.
Why do I need an asbestos survey?
There are several reasons why you should employ asbestos survey specialists who will help you to detect/manage asbestos in your premises.
To provide accurate information regarding the amount, condition and the location of any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs).
To assess the condition of the ACMs – whether there is any damage or deterioration
To assess whether any remedial action is required.
The survey information can be used to record the information on an asbestos register with a written plan.
To help identify all the ACMs which will need to be removed before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out.
The Control of Asbestos regulations act requires the Duty holder to identify the location and condition of asbestos containing materials and to create a written asbestos management plan to ensure any potential risks are suitably managed. The most effective way to do this is to commission asbestos survey specialists to help you form the basis of your management plan.
