What Is Asbestos Testing?

Asbestos testing is a crucial process that involves the examination of samples taken from a premises to determine the specific type of asbestos present. This procedure takes place in a laboratory setting and plays a vital role in ensuring safety and compliance with asbestos regulations.

The analysis carried out during asbestos testing is instrumental in understanding the nature of asbestos within a given environment. It enables experts to identify the asbestos variety, which is essential for devising effective management and removal strategies. By undergoing asbestos testing, you gain valuable insights into potential safety risks and the measures required to address them comprehensively.

Why Is Asbestos Testing Important?

Understanding the importance of asbestos testing is fundamental when it comes to safeguarding your property and the well-being of its occupants. Asbestos testing serves a pivotal role by pinpointing the specific type of asbestos present within your premises.

The significance lies in the fact that various types of asbestos exist, each with its unique characteristics and associated risks. When armed with the knowledge of the asbestos type, experts can tailor a bespoke strategy for its safe management and removal.

This customised approach ensures not only compliance with asbestos regulations but also the utmost safety for all concerned. With the precision of UKAS accredited asbestos surveyors and a rigorous testing process, you can confidently address safety concerns and make informed decisions regarding asbestos management.

With our comprehensive range of services, you can trust us to deliver expert asbestos management, tailored to your unique requirements.

Asbestos Management Survey

If you own or oversee a non-domestic building, your duty extends to identifying Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACMs) through a professionally conducted asbestos management survey. Regular updates and maintenance of an asbestos report and register are essential components of this responsibility. Neglecting proper asbestos management could expose visitors to your property to potentially harmful asbestos fibres, and this negligence may lead to legal prosecution.

Our process begins with scheduling a convenient site visit for the asbestos management survey. Our staff conducts a comprehensive examination of your premises, inspecting all areas where asbestos could be present. These areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Vinyl Flooring
  • Insulation Board Panels
  • Bonded Cement
  • Gaskets
  • Spray Coating

Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Survey

Before embarking on refurbishment or demolition work on a property, it is imperative to conduct an asbestos refurbishment and demolition survey to ensure the absence of ACMs.

Our skilled team will schedule a survey at your convenience, examining every area of your building to identify the presence of any ACMs. This thorough assessment is a critical step in ensuring the safety of all involved.

Upon completion of the survey, we provide you with a comprehensive report detailing the location and type of ACMs discovered. Our reports include photographic evidence, serving as proof of compliance with asbestos regulations.

With this comprehensive report in hand, we can determine the best approach for the removal of ACMs. If your construction, refurbishment, or demolition plans pose a risk of disturbing or damaging ACMs, it is crucial to pause the work until asbestos removal is completed.

Please note that these surveys are a destructive process and can only be carried out in unoccupied buildings.

Asbestos Sample Analysis

Asbestos sample analysis, commonly referred to as asbestos testing, is a crucial step in asbestos management. This process involves taking samples of any identified asbestos during a survey and sending them to a specialised laboratory for analysis. The primary goal is to determine the precise type of asbestos present.

The significance of this analysis lies in its ability to provide tailored asbestos management solutions. By knowing the specific asbestos type within your property, we can devise a comprehensive strategy that aligns with safety regulations and addresses potential risks effectively.

Asbestos Removal or Remediation

Asbestos management comprises two essential approaches: removal and remediation, each tailored to address specific asbestos-related concerns.

Asbestos Removal: When asbestos is damaged or at risk of damage, the safest course of action is removal. Our experts will eliminate Asbestos-Containing Materials (ACMs) from the premises, ensuring the safety of occupants and compliance with asbestos regulations.

Asbestos Remediation: In cases where asbestos is not prone to damage, remediation offers an alternative solution. We encapsulate the asbestos in a protective coating, safeguarding it from disturbance. To ensure ongoing safety, we conduct regular maintenance surveys, providing peace of mind to property owners.
