Asbestos Survey Services
Posted by David Cant on September 6, 2010

Did you know that any buildings built or refurbished before the year 2000 could still contain asbestos?

This lethal substance kills up to 20 tradesmen every week, and causes up to 4,000 deaths from asbestos related diseases each year.

That’s why it’s so important that your building is completely surveyed for asbestos if there is even the slightest chance that the substance can exist within your premises. In fact, the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 makes it a legal requirement to ensure that any risk from asbestos in your premises is fully managed. It also makes it a requirement to assume that asbestos is present until proven otherwise.

Affordable Asbestos Surveys

Our asbestos survey services means that you can carry out this vital task for an affordable cost. We have a thorough and professional asbestos survey team which will assess your premises and provide professional records of any asbestos found. If asbestos is found, in most cases it may not need to be removed if it remains undisturbed. It may simply have to be carefully recorded and monitored to comply with regulations and ensure complete safety for you and your staff members. This is known as a register of any Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMS).

Our expert asbestos survey professionals will be able to help and advise you both before and after the survey is carried out.

We have a range of asbestos survey types available, so you can select the right survey and avoid spending more than you need to for the type of test your premises requires.

The Survey Types; Asbestos Management Survey and the Refurbishment / Demolition Asbestos Survey.

As well as complying with law, these surveys are here mainly to protect anyone who may disturb asbestos within the building. That includes plumbers, electricians, decorators and more. It also alerts staff to the presence of asbestos in case anyone inadvertently disrupts asbestos within concrete walls, ceilings, pipe work insulation, fire doors and more. We’ll to everything to ensure that your staff are safe and your premises fully complies with the law.
