Asbestos management surveys are the standard type of asbestos survey that you will require to fulfill your legal duty (under Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012) to manage asbestos if you are responsible for 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:-
Our asbestos management surveys 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 fibers into the air.
We may need to be provided with the site layout, building plans & specifications along with any historical documentation of asbestos work.
Asbestos management surveys will identify hazardous asbestos containing materials as in the photos below:-
After the completion of one of our asbestos surveys, we will provide you with a detailed report covering:-
One thing to note however, is that where more extensive work is likely to be carried out, our asbestos management surveys may not provide all the required information, and a more in-depth examination of the area in the form of an asbestos refurbishment /demolition survey will be required for all work which may disturb the fabric of the building. Especially in areas where the asbestos management survey has not been as intrusive.
