Did you know that under regulation 4 of The Control of Asbestos Regulations, the duty holder (persons who have a legal responsibility for the premises) must manage the risk from asbestos in non-domestic premises e.g. commercial and industrial premises. The duty also applies to the common parts of domestic premises.

Before any refurbishment or demolition works are undertaken it is essential that asbestos containing materials are not disturbed in any way. You must carry out an asbestos survey within these areas whether you suspect that asbestos is present or not. If you are planning on extending, removing walls or conducting any type work at the property it is vital that you contact an expert for help and advice before you go ahead.

Think there may be asbestos in your premises in the following materials?

  • Textured coatings to ceilings & walls (Artex)
  • Thermoplastic floor tiles
  • Cement rainwater goods (gutters,downpipes,hoppers)
  • Roof sheets and tiles
  • Insulation to pipes
  • Insulating boards to fire breaks
  • Flue pipes
  • Partition wall boards, and ceiling boards
  • Plaster
  • Bitumen
  • Sash chords
  • Electrical switch gear and flash guards
  • Floor vinyl
  • Water storage tanks
  • Insulating or cement board to doors
  • Window boards
  • Frame packers
  • Soffit and facia

Outbuildings can be subject to asbestos too. Asbestos cement roofs and walls are still discovered on a regular basis, it is also important not to walk on fragile materials like these. Wood, glass, metals, stone and breezeblocks do not contain asbestos although they may be hiding it. If you are unsure, it is important to contact an expert for advice.

There are two types of asbestos surveys available:

  • Management Survey

    This type of survey is to assist in the duty holder’s management plan. We take samples of materials suspected to contain asbestos, and then presume that similar products are of the same matrix. We then carry out a material and priority assessment which will be determined via an algorithm to assess the risk in its entirety, subject to laboratory analysis results as to whether the product contains asbestos or not.

  • Demolition or Refurbishment Survey

    This type of survey must be conducted before any refurbishment or demolition works take place at any site.
    All areas will be subject to intrusive investigation as far as is reasonably practicable. A refurbishment or demolition survey requires our team to have access to all areas where the relevant work is to be taking place.

  • Air Monitoring

    You may be having work on asbestos carried out (encapsulation or removal) and require an independent body to carry out air monitoring. All air samples taken are evaluated within one of our mobile laboratories on-site.

  • Consultancy and advice

    You may just need expert advice about asbestos.
