What is an Asbestos Survey?

An asbestos survey is a detailed inspection conducted by certified professionals to identify the presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in a property. Asbestos was widely used in construction materials until its ban due to the severe health risks it poses.

When disturbed, asbestos fibres can become airborne and lead to serious respiratory diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma. A professional survey assesses the condition of ACMs, their locations within the property, and the potential risks they pose to occupants and workers.

Types of Asbestos Surveys

There are 2 types of asbestos surveys

Asbestos Management Survey

A management survey is typically carried out during the normal occupancy of a building. Its attribute is to locate, assess, and manage ACMs. The surveyor identifies potential risks associated with ACMs and develops a comprehensive management plan to ensure the safety of occupants and workers. This type of survey involves inspecting accessible areas of the property, including ceilings, floors, walls, and services, to determine the presence and condition of ACMs.

Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Survey

A refurbishment and demolition survey is more extensive and invasive, and it is conducted before major renovation or demolition works. This type of survey involves a comprehensive inspection of the building’s structure and materials to identify any ACMs that may be disturbed during the planned works. The surveyor focuses on areas where the refurbishment or demolition will take place and ensures that all ACMs are identified, allowing appropriate measures to be taken to safely manage or remove them.

Our Asbestos Survey Process

We strive to ensure the highest level of professionalism, accuracy, and safety throughout the entire asbestos survey process.

By choosing AMK Asbestos Consultancy, you can have peace of mind knowing that your property is thoroughly assessed, and appropriate measures are recommended to protect the health and well-being of all occupants and workers.

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.
