With our asbestos surveying in Bournemouth, we can help you to identify the location, type, condition and extent of any asbestos-containing materials. The duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic properties 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 may be present within your premises or estate. 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 on you.

Where Is It Found?

Asbestos is a fire-resistant mineral that was once used in a variety of construction materials. It can be found in insulation, flooring, shingles, siding, and pipes. Bournemouth is no stranger to asbestos. The mineral can be found in a variety of buildings throughout the town. Asbestos surveys are important to identify areas where the mineral is present. These surveys can help to prevent exposure to asbestos and protect the health of residents and workers.

We have two types of surveys we can provide you with a management survey and a refurbishment and demolition survey. The management survey is used to locate as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in a 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 used to locate and describe all of the asbestos-containing materials in the area where the refurbishment work is being carried out or in the whole building if demolition is planned. The survey is fully intrusive and involves destructive inspection, as necessary to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach.
