Asbestos Surveying

The duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic properties sets a legal requirement for owners and occupiers of non-domestic building to have an Asbestos Survey and up to date Asbestos Register in place. These reports must form a detailed asbestos management plan that outlines how you will monitor and manage any asbestos containing materials that may be present.
If you are an employer or are self-employed and have a responsibility for conducting repairs upon your premises. You may well be the ''Duty Holder'' in which case any legal responsibility for ensuring your asbestos survey has been conducted will rest with you.

Asbestos Survey

A key stage in managing asbestos is to identify the type, condition, location and extent of any Asbestos Containing Materials. This can be achieved by conducting an Asbestos Survey. The survey should be in accordance with HSE guidance note HSG264 which describes two types:

  • Management Survey

    A management asbestos survey is a standard inspection. Its purpose is to locate as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect asbestos containing materials in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to access their condition.
  • Refurbishment and Demolition Survey

    A refurbishment and Demolition Survey is needed before any refurbishment or demolition works area carried out. This survey is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all asbestos containing materials in the area where the refurbishment work will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach. A refurbishment & demolition survey may also be required in other circumstances, e.g. when more intrusive maintenance and repair work will be carried out or for plant removal and dismantling.
    The type of asbestos survey most appropriate will be dependent on client /property requirements and will be established during the survey planning phase.

Contaminated land

Contaminated land can be an issue when re-developing brown field sites, and is typically the result of historic poor asbestos removal works.
Asbestos soil contamination comes in 2 forms, Bound asbestos, and Fibrous asbestos. Bound asbestos is typically bound asbestos containing debris materials which may include asbestos insulation boards and asbestos cement. Fibrous asbestos is high risk. This is typically loose fibers, lying around and if disturbed could become air born.
