Asbestos Surveys and Asbestos Sampling
The purpose of an asbestos survey is to locate the extent and presence of any ACMs (asbestos containing materials) at a non-domestic or commercial building which may pose a health risk to the building’s occupants.
As a business, if you are the ‘’Duty Holder’’, it is up to you to make sure your staff and workers are aware of the dangers and the presence of asbestos in the building. You are responsible for the management of asbestos and the location as well as the types of asbestos and the risks of all ACM’s in the building.
Known as the asbestos management register, this should be available to all staff, as it facilitates management of workers coming into the building, and all tradesman entering and carrying out work activities within the building. The register needs to be updated annually or an as/when basis – any new work could affect the fabric of the building and could potentially pose a hazard to staff and workers.
We can carry out all kinds of asbestos surveys – from asbestos management surveys and pre-refurbishment asbestos surveys to pre-demolition asbestos surveys and asbestos re-inspection services.
At times, you may require a sample survey, also referred to as asbestos sample testing. Asbestos sampling is required when an asbestos surveyor has identified specific areas and/or materials which may contain asbestos.
We offer a UKAS accredited 17025 asbestos sample testing service for single and one-off samples as well as full-survey sample analysis. The asbestos sampling experts work as our close partners to ensure that you get rapid turnaround on your results. Working with a UKAS accredited asbestos sampling firm ensures that all the appropriate staff, equipment, procedures and reporting practices are incorporated in a lab which meets the ISO 17025 standards.
