More About Asbestos Surveys

If you have a ‘duty to manage’ asbestos in a commercial property then you will need to determine the presence, location and condition of any asbestos containing materials (ACMs) and then, compile and implement a management plan to ensure that they remain safe, in good condition and fit for their intended purpose.

Accreditation schemes for asbestos surveyors do exist but they are not a guarantee of competency and are not legal requirements… In fact, there is nothing legally preventing you from carrying out your own asbestos survey… However, we strongly recommend that you use a professional and experienced asbestos surveyor familiar with huge variety of potential asbestos containing materials that could present a risk to human health if not accurately detected and managed accordingly.

First, you will need to establish what type of asbestos survey you need:

Management Survey

This is a minimum requirement survey to comply with your duty to manage asbestos in buildings where no planned refurbishments or demolitions are scheduled to be undertaken. Samples of suspect materials are obtained for confirmation and assessments are made usually along with management suggestions and recommendations. This will form the basis of your management plan that will go on to outline exactly how you intend to manage your asbestos issues based on the information gathered during your asbestos survey. This type of survey is not suitable if refurbishments or demolitions are planned.

Refurbishment/ Demolition Survey

This is an invasive type of survey that goes beyond surface testing and looks behind walls and into cavities to ensure that all asbestos materials are identified prior to destructive works being undertaken. It should be noted that this type of survey can only be properly undertaken in buildings or specific areas that are unoccupied and are not due for immediate re-occupation.
