What is Asbestos?

Before its dangers were known, asbestos was often used in buildings for a variety of reasons. These include: insulation, flooring, roofing, and was also sprayed on ceilings and walls. Its use is now banned in the UK, but buildings constructed before the year 2000 may still have dangerous levels of asbestos in them. Read more on the dangers of Asbestos on the British Lung Foundation website, here.

Undertaking an asbestos survey is a key stage in managing your asbestos.

The main purpose of the asbestos survey is to identify the location, type, condition, and extent of any ACMs present. The survey should be in accordance with HSE guidance note HSG264:

Asbestos Management Survey – This survey was previously known as a Type 2. Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building.

Pre-Refurbishment Asbestos Survey – Replacing the old Type 3 survey. Prior to refurbishment work being carried out, a refurbishment and demolition survey must be completed.

Pre-Demolition Asbestos Survey – This has also replaced the old Type 3 survey. Prior to demolition work being carried out, a refurbishment and demolition survey must be completed.

Asbestos Re-inspection Services – Once ACMs have been identified, it is the duty holder’s responsibility to inspect these items (at least annually) and create a Management Plan.
