Surveying Buildings That May House Asbestos
Buildings constructed on or before 1999 may have asbestos in the structure lying dormant or waiting to be disturbed due to demolition works or renovation works. This is why arranging for an asbestos survey is highly important and can be a legal requirement depending on the work that is required. Hiring a specialist asbestos survey company allows you to:
- For domestic projects such as a house renovation – you don’t want to put yourself or your family at risk. The use of an asbestos survey can give you the peace of mind that you will not be disturbing any asbestos that could be dormant in your property.
- You may also want to check that your home doesn’t have any asbestos apparent regardless. This can also help when looking to sell your home or in assuring that your home is safe for family and visitors.
- For commercial projects that include demolition or renovation projects – you will be required to carry out asbestos assessments and testing and to manage the risks of asbestos. You also have a duty of care for employees in terms of risks relating to asbestos so this is why asbestos surveys are tools that are used to protect workers and staff.
The Asbestos Survey Process
Our team of professionally experienced surveyors are fully trained in accordance with the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS)’s P402 Building Surveys and Bulk Sampling qualification. We can carry out a number of processes during the survey process. We can carry out asbestos management surveys, refurbishment and pre-demolition surveys, asbestos bulk sampling/testing, asbestos awareness training along with re-inspection surveys assisting our customers to comply with current legislation.
It’s essential that the risks of asbestos are managed and we are available to support you should you be wary of the risks or you are carrying out works on a building constructed on or before 1999. The disturbance of asbestos is carcinogenic and can cause a number of lung related diseases and cancer.
