Demolition Asbestos Survey Bradford

Asbestos Pre-Demolition Surveys Bradford

OJ Health and Safety in Bradford, West Yorkshire provides HSG 264 Compliant Asbestos Pre-Demolition Surveys, previously known as a ‘Type 3 asbestos survey’. An Asbestos Demolition Survey is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in the building and will involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas.

OJ Health and Safety Pre-Demolition Asbestos Surveys are intrusive and can be targeted to areas that may be affected by proposed demolition works. A Pre-Demolition Asbestos Survey is primarily designed to identify asbestos-containing materials so that they can be removed in preparation for demolition works in Bradford and the surrounding areas.

OJ H&S Asbestos Surveyors can advise on the type of asbestos survey needed for your premises. Our Asbestos Project Management services can ensure your demolition project is completed on time, within budget, and safely.

What is Asbestos?

Before its dangers were known, asbestos was often used in buildings for insulation, flooring, roofing, and was 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.

What will OJ H&S Bradford do?

Pre-Demolition Asbestos Surveys are intrusive and can be targeted to areas that may be affected by proposed demolition works. OJ’s Pre-Demolition Asbestos Survey in Bradford will be required by your CDM Advisors or Principal Designer under the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015. OJ Health and Safety Pre-Demolition Asbestos Surveys are more intrusive than a normal Asbestos Management Surveys and should be undertaken alongside a project-specific plan of work to ensure that the survey covers all areas planned for demolition.

Following the completion of your Pre-Demolition Asbestos Survey, you will be provided with an official report detailing the location of any asbestos found within the building.

Please note: this type of survey is fully intrusive and should not be undertaken in a property that is occupied or due to be reoccupied after the survey has been completed. Electrical, mechanical and gas services should be isolated to enable the asbestos surveyors to access all areas.

Asbestos In Bradford Buildings

  • Asbestos only becomes a problem once it’s disturbed and the fibres airborne.
  • Any building built prior to the year 2000 can contain asbestos.
  • Non-domestic buildings must have an asbestos survey report and register.
  • If you own or are responsible for a commercial building and you fail to manage the asbestos correctly you could be prosecuted or imprisoned.

What if Asbestos is found?

OJ H&S Asbestos Demolition Surveys will include a risk assessment of the condition of any Asbestos Containing Materials found and their ability to release fibres into the air if they are disturbed in some way. This will give you a good initial guide to the priority for managing Asbestos Containing Materials as it will identify the materials that will most readily release airborne fibres if they are disturbed.

What are my responsibilities?

If you are the duty holder, you are required to manage your asbestos risks in line with the Control of Asbestos Regulation (CAR) 2012. Effectively managing your asbestos risks is imperative to protecting your building occupants, environment, and organisation from the risks of asbestos.
