What type of Asbestos Survey do you require?

What type of Asbestos Survey do you require?

Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, people who manage non-domestic premises have a duty to protect those who work in or use the premises, or contractors working on the premises, from risks to health by exposure to Asbestos. A Survey should be carried out to ascertain whether there are Asbestos Containing Materials in the premises and their location and condition. The Survey Report should be kept on the premises and the information used to draw up an appropriate Management Plan for all Asbestos materials identified in the building.

 

Our Type 2 Management Survey covers all areas of the building which can be reasonably accessed. If materials are presumed to contain Asbestos, Sampling and independent UKAS Laboratory Analysis will be carried out. The Asbestos Register and Risk Assessment will enable a Plan to be drawn up for the management or removal of any materials.


We can offer a sampling service or a tailor made survey for the appropriate areas of your property.

Type 3 Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Survey

Home owners do not have a Duty to Manage any Asbestos materials that may be present in their property, but Contractors working on your house must ensure that their employees are not exposed to any health risks from Asbestos materials and must reduce any spread of Asbestos to the lowest level. They should ask to see your Survey before starting works. We carry out Surveys which cover specific areas only – keeping costs down.
