Surveys of buildings for asbestos materials take various forms depending on a client’s need and the current use of the building. However, to ensure compliance with the current Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006, Regulation 4, an asbestos building survey should be carried out on all non-domestic buildings and communal areas of domestic buildings.
Local Asbestos Services provide independent Asbestos surveys and Asbestos management services
This provides our clients with complete professional integrity with relation to asbestos surveys and management.
By carrying out an asbestos survey, an asbestos register and risk assessment will be produced to prevent or reduce exposure by highlighting the presence of any asbestos material.
The ultimate aim of a survey is to alert the Duty Holder of the presence of asbestos-containing materials within their properties. There are 2 kinds of asbestos surveys which are outlined in the HSE publication HSG264, “Asbestos: The Survey Guide“
- Management Survey
- Demolition/Refurbishment survey
In all types of survey an Asbestos Register is produced incorporating plans, observation points, accredited certificate of Bulk Analysis (where samples have been taken), photographs and recommendations.
All our surveyors hold the statutory BOHS Proficiency Certificate in Building Surveys and Bulk Sampling for Asbestos, P402 qualification and in addition several surveyors are qualified to S301
Our P402 qualified surveyors carry out surveys for our clients in accordance with HSG264. (Asbestos Survey Guide) and are employed to identify asbestos material for management under CAR2006 (Management Surveys) and further intrusive Demolition/Refurbishment surveys are required before demolition or major building alteration work can start.
