If you manage a building, then it is a legal requirement for you to have an asbestos survey carried out if the property was built before the year 2000. Such a survey must be carried out by fully trained professionals who have a history of performing asbestos surveys successfully in the past. It is here where we at Astech Environmental Ltd can help. Our qualified experts can perform a thorough survey without being too intrusive of your property or disruptive of your daily routine.
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations of 2015 have made it a requirement for all buildings in the UK built before 2000 to be surveyed for the presence of asbestos. It is vital for asbestos to be located in your building to determine whether asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are damaged. If asbestos fibres are found to be exposed, then you will need to take action to prevent potential health risks in your property.
If you own or manage a non-domestic building, then you have a responsibility to identify ACMs through a professional survey and have them updated regularly on an asbestos report and register. Failing to manage your asbestos correctly could leave visitors to your property exposed to harmful fibres unnecessarily. This inaction will result in a legal prosecution if it is found that you neglected to have an asbestos management survey carried out.
We at Astech Environmental Ltd will arrange a convenient date upon which to visit your site and have an asbestos management survey carried out. Our staff are thorough in their approach and will check every area of your building where asbestos could be found. Such areas include:
We will draw up a comprehensive report upon completing the survey, complete with photo evidence. You can use this report as proof that the necessary checks have been carried out. The reports we produce are clear and concise, detailing the areas in which asbestos has been found so that you can keep ACMs in top condition.
Once your asbestos management survey has been completed, we can then advise you on what steps to take next. It may be that your ACMs have been uncompromised and that you need only maintain them going forward. However, if exposed asbestos fibres have been found, then you will need to take advantage of our removal or encapsulation services.
