In the UK we have regulations for the control of asbestos, the duty to manage asbestos in a non-domestic property sets a legal requirement for owners and occupiers of the non-domestic building to have an Asbestos Survey and up to date Asbestos register in place. These reports must form the basis of a detailed asbestos management plan that outlines how you intend to monitor and manage any ACMs that are present in your building/premises. If you are an employer or are self-employed and have some or all of the responsibility for conducting repairs upon your premises you may well be the “duty holder” in which case any legal responsibility for ensuring your asbestos survey has been conducted will rest with you. ACL compiles with and works in accordance with HSG264 which describes two types.
Types of Asbestos Survey In Winchester
You have a management survey and a refurbishment and demolition survey. The management survey is a standard survey. its purpose is to locate as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to access their condition. The refurbishment and demolition survey is needed before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out. This survey is used to locate and describe all ACMs in the area where the refurbishment work will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to their condition.
