What is an Asbestos Management Survey?

An asbestos management survey is a detailed inspection conducted by certified professionals to assess and manage asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in a property. This survey helps identify the location, condition, and potential risks associated with ACMs. By evaluating the risks and providing expert recommendations, we assist property owners and managers in implementing effective asbestos management plans.

The Importance of Asbestos Management Surveys

Managing asbestos hazards is essential for the safety of occupants and compliance with regulations. Asbestos-containing materials, if disturbed, can release hazardous fibres into the air, leading to severe health risks.

An asbestos management survey plays a crucial role in identifying and assessing ACMs, ensuring their safe management, and minimizing the potential for exposure. It helps property owners meet legal obligations, protect the health of occupants, and maintain a safe environment.

Was your property built before 2000's?

There can be asbestos present if your building or remodelling work were finished before 2000. Asbestos was frequently utilised in commercial structures because it is a tough, fire-resistant material.

It is your obligation to ensure that any potential asbestos in your property doesn’t pose a health risk. Asbestos is totally harmless when it is not damaged; it only becomes dangerous when it is disturbed and its fibres can be expelled.

Don’t try to inspect it yourself unless you have previous experience working with asbestos. The asbestos could emit fibres if disturbed or broken. An asbestos expert can determine the condition of any asbestos on your property and offer advice on the best way to handle it.

Frequently asked questions - Asbestos Management Survey

What is the difference between an asbestos management survey and a refurbishment/demolition survey?

An asbestos management survey is conducted during normal occupancy to assess the presence and condition of ACMs. A refurbishment/demolition survey is more intrusive and conducted before major renovation or demolition works to identify ACMs that may be disturbed during the planned activities.

How often should an asbestos management survey be conducted?

The frequency of asbestos management surveys depends on various factors, such as the age of the building, previous survey results, and any changes in the property’s use or condition. As a general guideline, regular surveys should be conducted every few years to ensure ongoing management and compliance.

Are asbestos management surveys legally required?

While asbestos management surveys are not a legal requirement in all cases, they are strongly recommended to meet legal obligations for managing asbestos risks. Additionally, regulatory authorities may require surveys for specific situations or as part of compliance with health and safety regulations.

How can an asbestos management survey help with compliance?

An asbestos management survey helps property owners and duty holders comply with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 in the United Kingdom. It provides crucial information about ACMs, risk assessments, and a documented plan for managing and monitoring asbestos.

Can I conduct an asbestos management survey myself?

To ensure accuracy and compliance, it is advised to use professionals with experience in asbestos management surveys. They are equipped with the training, real-world experience, and instruments needed to conduct surveys safely and effectively.

What happens if asbestos if found during the survey?

If asbestos-containing materials are identified during an asbestos management survey, the survey report will include recommendations for managing the asbestos. This may involve measures such as encapsulation, regular monitoring, or removal by licensed asbestos contractors.
