What is an asbestos management survey?
Previously known as a type 2 asbestos survey, the asbestos management survey is a legal requirement for duty holders responsible for any non-domestic premises. This asbestos survey is a surface sampling survey, designed to identify all of the materials that could potentially be disturbed during normal occupancy of the building and will take into consideration the contextual use of the building i.e. if there is a lot of moving traffic from the building occupants such as in a retail building.
The asbestos management survey will take into consideration light maintenance work (ie. changing light bulbs, checking above lowered suspended ceiling tiles, loft spaces, etc) but it is not a destructive/intrusive survey.
If the type of project works you will be conducting will require more than ‘light maintenance’ work, this asbestos survey may not be sufficient in identifying your possible asbestos risks.
What will the asbestos management survey report tell me?
Your asbestos management survey will identify any asbestos containing materials, their location and condition. Should asbestos containing materials be identified in your asbestos management survey report, our asbestos project management team can help you choose and plan your next course of action to achieve compliance;
Our skilled team of asbestos surveyors are experienced in ensuring a smooth project delivery on site, with the promise of quick turnaround times on survey reporting due to our award-winning compliance management software, NexGen. NexGen access is provided free and given with all of our services, given you transparency in managing your asbestos risks.
What are my responsibilities?
If you are the duty holder, you are required to manage your asbestos risks in line with the Control of Asbestos Regulation (CAR) 2012. Effectively managing your asbestos risks is imperative to protecting your building occupants, environment, and organisation from the risks of asbestos.
Our specialist asbestos management consultants can help you manage your asbestos risks providing asbestos management plans, documentation control systems, and performing policy reviews.Download a printable PDF of this page
