Asbestos Survey

Asbestos Survey DebrisThe Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 put an explicit duties on employers, owners and managers of non-domestic and managed residential properties to assess the asbestos risk and where relevant have in place a managed asbestos register. This is identified as part of an Asbestos Survey.  This enables any future workers to assess the presence of any Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s) before work is carried out, thus eliminating any damage or health risk. Two types of Asbestos Survey can be undertaken. The asbestos surveyors employed by SJ Treloar & Associates (Environmental) Ltd, are able to carry out both types of Asbestos Survey. Based in Witney, near Oxford, we are well placed to help clients across Oxfordshire, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and London.

SJ Treloar & Associates (Environmental) Ltd provide asbestos surveyors qualified to P402, issued British Institute of Occupational Hygienists. Our asbestos surveyors, also qualified building surveyors, have considerable knowledge of construction and its processes, which make us more circumspect and efficient at identifying possible Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s), and are able to carry out both types of Asbestos Survey.

The types of Surveys are defined by HSG 264, which is the HSE guidance document for an Asbestos Survey. These are as follows:

Types of Asbestos Survey

Management Asbestos Survey
This is the standard type of asbestos survey that is undertaken to identify the presence of ACM’s within a building. The report will locate, as far as possible, the locations of ACM’s and advise whether they are safe to manage or require removal. This type of survey allows for a small sample of the material to be assessed by a laboratory to conclude whether the material contains asbestos. This survey is developed using digital imaging and risk assessments, from which we are able to advise on any appropriate course of action for any ACM’s positively identified.Asbestos Survey

Refurbishment and Demolition Asbestos Survey

Any building that is to be demolished or refurbished will require an intrusive survey to identify any asbestos that may be present within areas that may be difficult to reach. This type of asbestos survey may involve destructive inspection as necessary to gain access to all areas. A full sampling programme is undertaken and estimates of the volume and surface area of the ACM’s are made. All our survey and sampling techniques for suspected ACM’s are carried out in accordance with the requirements of the Health and Safety Executive guidance document ‘HSG 264′. All samples obtained are sent to an independent UKAS accredited laboratory for analysis.

Successful management of ACM’s is based on the effective identification, inspection and the implementation of an effective management programme.
