Why are Asbestos Surveys Important?
Since 1999 it has been illegal to use asbestos containing materials (ACMs) when constructing buildings in the UK. However, that does not mean that there is no longer a risk of asbestos in the country. A lot of buildings have been built using the material which is why surveys are so important.
From poor maintenance to demolition work, there can be many reasons why ACMs are exposed to the air. Our company work closely with businesses to ensure that any signs of the substance are found and documented as quickly as possible. This is to ensure a site is safe to work on and safe for those around it.
Types of Surveys
There are 3 key types of asbestos surveys that we offer to our clients. Each of these vary, so it is important that you check below to see which one is relevant to your needs. These include management, refurbishment and demolition. Below are some descriptions of each option.
This is needed if you are carrying out any demolition work on a site and is required. Official guidance ensures that ‘demolition’ is only ever used as a description if the entire building is planned for complete removal. The survey will make note of any ACMs that are present in the building.
This type is the minimum survey that you can carry out by law. These work by locating any presence of ACM’s and showing the extent of this within a building. Any potential risks of damage and disturbance with everyday occupancy are also noted.
It is important that a refurbishment survey is carried out prior to any intrusive refurbishment work being carried out. This ensures that an ACMs are located and described.
All of the above contain a lot of detail and ensure that any asbestos that is present has been identified. Furthermore, we will be able to note which type of fibre it is as well as provide a solution for you to safely remove it.
