Asbestos Management Survey
If you own or manage a non-domestic building, it is your legal responsibility to identify and manage asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) through professional surveys and regular updates to an asbestos report and register. Our asbestos management survey service is designed to help you fulfil this obligation.
When you choose our accredited surveyors in Bristol, we will schedule a convenient date to visit your site and conduct a thorough asbestos management survey. Our expert team inspects every area of your building where asbestos may be present, including vinyl flooring, insulation board panels, bonded cement, gaskets, and spray coatings.
Upon completion of the survey, we provide you with a comprehensive report supported by photo evidence. This report serves as tangible proof that the necessary checks have been carried out. Our reports are clear and concise, detailing the exact locations where asbestos has been identified, empowering you to manage ACMs effectively and maintain a safe environment within your property or premises.
Asbestos Sample Analysis
Once we’ve conducted an asbestos survey at your site, the next crucial step is asbestos sample analysis. This vital process involves collecting samples of the asbestos fibres discovered during the survey and sending them to a UKAS accredited laboratory for in-depth examination.
Our trusted partners perform a series of comprehensive tests on these samples to identify the specific type of asbestos present, whether it’s Chrysotile (white), Amosite (brown), or Crocidolite (blue). Knowing the asbestos type is essential because the appropriate removal or encapsulation method depends on it.
Asbestos sample analysis is an indispensable procedure for homeowners and property managers alike. It provides the critical information needed to determine the best course of action for asbestos management within your property. With this knowledge, you can ensure the safety and wellbeing of all occupants and comply with asbestos regulations effectively.
Asbestos Removal and Remediation
Asbestos management involves two fundamental methods: removal and encapsulation, both essential for maintaining safety within properties.
- Asbestos Removal: When asbestos is damaged or likely to be damaged, the safest course of action is complete removal from the premises. Our expert team in Bristol is equipped to carry out this process, ensuring that all hazardous asbestos materials are safely and thoroughly removed.
- Asbestos Encapsulation: In cases where asbestos materials are undamaged or not prone to damage, encapsulation is a prudent approach. This method involves applying a protective coating around the asbestos, preventing the release of harmful fibres. Regular asbestos surveys are then conducted to monitor and manage encapsulated asbestos effectively.
