ENV Surveys Asbestos Services
Asbestos management surveys are the standard survey. Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect asbestos containing materials in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation and to assess their condition.
This type of survey should be carried out prior to any refurbishment or demolition works. It is used to locate and describe, as far as is reasonably practicable all asbestos containing materials within the areas surveyed.
Asbestos was used in thousands of building products; the only way to determine if asbestos is present is through asbestos testing in a UKAS accredited laboratory.
Our experienced surveyors /analysts carry out the sampling of suspect material in accordance with HSE Guidance Notes HSG 248 and HSG264, and in-house procedures. The samples are then analysed in accordance with HSG 248 and in-house procedures, using both stereo microscopy and polarised light microscopy.
ENV Surveys Ltd is a specialist asbestos surveying company who offer UKAS accredited services. We also provide Asbestos Awareness Training in full accordance with Regulation 10 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012.
It is the duty holder’s responsibility to manage and prioritise the risk associated with these asbestos materials and to prepare a long term asbestos management plan, as required under Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
On many of the smaller asbestos removal projects the client is often happy to oversee the works themselves, however where the removal works are more complex, or of a larger scale, our clients often want an extra level of reassurance that the contract is being completed to the standard required.
