Asbestos Risk Assessments in Reading
Before you begin any work on a project, it is important to check for the presence of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs). Even though this substance hasn’t been used in the building and construction trade since it was banned in 1999, any properties built or adapted prior to then could be at risk.
With years of experience in the industry, our team here at Absolute Asbestos Surveys provide a range of services including asbestos risk assessments in Reading. We work closely with you to assess for the presence of ACMs and help you to identify and control any associated risks of working around the materials.

What Happens in a Risk Assessment?
Whether you’re taking on a new demolition project or would like to renovate a property, there are a few important steps to take. Carrying out a thorough risk assessment allows you to identify any issues before any work is carried out. This protects the integrity of the building but also ensures the health and safety of you and any workers on site.
When asbestos risk assessments are carried out, they follow a few key steps. This is to make sure that any issues are spotted and managed. Steps of the process include:
- Identifying the risks to health
- Identifying who may be harmed by these risks
- Analysing specific precautions which are needed to remove or reduce the risks
- Recording the findings and precautions, then implementing them
- Reviewing and updating the risk assessment when required
Additionally, our team will be able to identify which type of ACMs are on your site. This will include information about the condition as well as how much there is and friability.
