At Asbestos, we can perform an asbestos survey on your property that will tell us where and to what extent it is. The duty to manage asbestos in a non-domestic property sets a legal requirement for owners and occupiers of the non-domestic buildings 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 ACM’s 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 with you.
A key stage in managing asbestos is through identifying the location, type, condition and extent of any asbestos-containing materials. This can be achieved by conducting an asbestos survey. The survey should be in accordance with HSE guidance. We have a management survey and a refurbishment & demolition survey that can be performed on your property. The management survey is a standard survey and its purpose is to locate as far as reasonably practicable 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. Then the refurbishment and demolition survey is needed before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out. The 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 to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to get to.
