What Are Asbestos Management Surveys?

Asbestos, a hazardous material once widely used in construction, poses serious health risks when disturbed. To ensure the safety of occupants and workers, asbestos management surveys are a crucial step in assessing properties in Dorset. These surveys are comprehensive building inspections specifically designed to locate and identify any asbestos-containing materials within a property.

The process involves skilled surveyors examining every accessible area of a building, from roofs to walls and floors, looking for any potential asbestos hazards. Detailed asbestos surveying provides property owners and managers with essential information to develop effective asbestos management plans.

What is an Asbestos Management Survey?

In the United Kingdom, the legal landscape surrounding asbestos management is clear: if your building was constructed before the year 2000, it is a legal requirement to have an asbestos survey carried out. This mandate stems from the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations of 2015, which were enacted to protect the health and safety of those working in or visiting such premises.

The importance of these asbestos surveys cannot be overstated. They serve as a vital tool in identifying asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within your property. Should these materials be damaged or deteriorate, they have the potential to release harmful asbestos fibres into the air, posing serious health risks.

For owners or managers of non-domestic buildings, the responsibility lies in promptly identifying ACMs through professional surveys and ensuring regular updates on an asbestos report and register. Neglecting this duty can lead to unnecessary exposure of visitors to hazardous asbestos fibres and, ultimately, legal prosecution for failure to conduct an asbestos management survey as required by law.

Refurbishment and Demolition Survey

Planning a refurbishment or demolition project on an older property? It’s imperative to conduct a thorough asbestos survey before commencing any work. These surveys are designed to identify the presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within the property, ensuring the safety of workers and occupants. 

Once the survey is complete, a comprehensive report is generated. This report guides the decision-making process regarding the removal of ACMs. If your construction, refurbishment, or demolition activities are likely to disturb or damage ACMs, it is essential to pause the work until asbestos removal is carried out. 

Sample Analysis

Once an asbestos survey has been conducted on your site, the next critical step is sample analysis. This vital process involves collecting samples of the asbestos fibres detected during the survey and sending them to a UKAS accredited laboratory for analysis. 

Through a rigorous series of tests, our laboratory partners can identify the specific type of asbestos present in your property. This information is crucial for determining the appropriate course of action to manage and mitigate the asbestos risk effectively. 

Sample analysis plays a pivotal role in ensuring the safety of your property and its occupants. It provides the necessary insights for making informed decisions regarding asbestos management, removal, or containment measures. With precise data from sample analysis, you can take proactive steps to protect your property from the potential health hazards associated with asbestos.


Asbestos Removal

When it comes to asbestos management, two primary approaches are employed: removal and encapsulation. These methods are tailored to the condition and potential risks associated with asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within a property.

Asbestos Removal: In cases where ACMs are damaged or likely to become damaged, asbestos removal is the recommended course of action. This process involves the complete removal of all asbestos materials from the property. By eliminating the source of asbestos, this approach ensures the safety of occupants and prevents potential health hazards.

Encapsulation: When ACMs are not damaged and are unlikely to be disturbed, encapsulation is a viable option. This method involves the application of a protective coating or enclosure over the asbestos. This encapsulation process effectively seals the asbestos, preventing the release of hazardous fibres into the environment.
