Did you know that any property built or refurbished before the year 2000 could contain asbestos?
Asbestos management surveys – An Asbestos management survey is the standard survey you will require to fulfill your legal duty (under Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012) to manage asbestos if you are responsible maintaining a property (either commercial or non commercial).
Its intention is to manage asbestos containing materials (ACM) during the everyday use and occupation of the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy which includes maintenance and to verify their condition.
Asbestos management surveys aim to ensure that
No one is harmed by the presence of ACM in the property
That the ACM remains in good condition
It’s unlikely that the ACM will be disturbed accidentally
Our survey will locate ACM that could be disturbed or damaged by everyday activities and any foreseeable property maintenance or by installing new equipment. It involves minor examinations, intrusions and disturbances to make a materials assessment. This will show us the ability of the asbestos containing material, if disturbed, to release fibres into the air.
We may need to be provided with the site layout, building plans & specifications along with any historical documentation of asbestos work.
After our survey
After completion of the Asbestos management survey we will provide you with a detailed report covering:
The asbestos type, location, extent, condition and any surface treatment
Details on how to prepare an Asbestos management plan for your property/building
The report will also include notes on priorities for any remedial work
One thing to note however, is that where more extensive work is likely to be carried out a management survey may not provide all the required information and a more in-depth examination of the area in the form of a LINK asbestos refurbishment /LINK survey will be required for all work which may disturbs the fabric of the building. Especially in areas where the management surveys has not been as intrusive.
