What can we do to help?
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 requires that the condition of asbestos-based products needs to be inspected regularly and records updated accordingly. The frequency of the asbestos inspection regime must not exceed 12 months.
Re-inspection Asbestos Surveys are designed to allow a competent person to monitor and record the condition of any previously identified asbestos products within a building.
Over time, asbestos-based products can degenerate, weather or be accidentally damaged thereby causing the risks associated with the material to change substantially. Additionally, the approved code of practice requires the asbestos management plan to be reviewed every six months. We can advise on or supply efficient methods for complying with this requirement.
The new and updated asbestos survey report itself will include new photographs of those materials together with a new recommendation on how to safely manage those materials.
We have the experience where it counts
OJ Safety can re-inspect any previously surveyed property and update the information, whether held electronically or as a hard copy. We will discuss your requirements and identify the frequency of visits and checks. Where necessary, we can handle discussions with the HSE on your behalf. This service can be offered over any period of time including a one, three, five or ten year period. The longer term options provide cost certainty and compliant information that protect your investment from the initial survey.
