HSG264 The New Asbestos Survey Guide

Asbestos The Survey Guide hsg264

The HSE has reviewed its ‘MDHS 100’ guidance on asbestos surveying, which describes Type 1, 2 and 3 surveys and this document was replaced on 29th January 2010 with ‘Managing Asbestos in Premises, The Survey Guide (HSG 264)’, which describes management surveys and refurbishment/demolition surveys.

The HSE estimates that there are between half a million and a million non-domestic properties , within the UK, which still contain asbestos, and there will be an increasing requirement for the more invasive refurbishment/demolition surveys which are particularly demanding.

‘Managing asbestos in Premises, The Survey Guide (HSG 264)’ therefore places a far greater emphasis on competency.
