Asbestos Testing

We are the UK’s market leading, independent, ISO 17205 UKAS accredited asbestos testing, inspection and consultancy service provider. Our team of BOHS (or RSPH) certified surveyors and analysts are trained to the highest industry standards and work to deliver your project requirements on time, utilising our in house asbestos testing laboratory.

Tool Box Talk: Asbestos Awareness

As part of Lucion’s Take Care Be Aware initiative, we actively take care of our health and safety responsibilities, with continuous awareness of our commitments to knowledge share and educate.

In doing so we have created a ‘toolbox talk’ on asbestos awareness to raise awareness of the hazards associated with asbestos-containing materials, enabling safety professionals to share knowledge and overall save the time and effort in producing them for you and your teams.

Europe’s Largest Asbestos Testing Laboratory

Internationally UKAS ISO 17025 accredited, our laboratory demonstrates competence in testing and calibrating results. Operating 7 days a week, our facility is capable of processing a staggering 6,000 bulk samples per week (in line with UKAS restrictions of 60/70 sample points per day, per analyst).

This is an unrivalled level of resource in the UK and provides our clients with the reassurance they need to meet their demands, static or fluctuating. Due to our capacity management and capabilities, we are able to react quickly to urgent works and restricted timescales without compromising on quality controls.

As Europe’s largest asbestos testing laboratory, we have developed our suite of services and offer additional fully UKAS accredited asbestos testing and analysis services through our laboratory including:

  • Independent asbestos sampling, testing and analysis. As an independent provider, we have no affiliation with any asbestos removal contractors meaning that you can trust our reports and findings to be impartial
  • Asbestos bulk sampling and analysis conducted by our BOHS certified surveyor and analyst team in accordance with HSG 248 ‘The Analysts’ guide for sampling, analysis and clearance procedures’
  • Qualitative and quantitative identification of asbestos in soils
  • Asbestos air testing and monitoring using Phase Contrast Optical Microscopy (PCOM) analysis
  • Asbestos fibre determination and fibre counting, using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS).  These provide a greater level of accuracy than the methods used by the majority of UK asbestos laboratories
  • Four stage clearance certification of reoccupation

Sustainable Practices

As part of our mission to make the world a safer place to live, we also endeavour to ensure we are providing a sustainable and environmentally friendly service to our clients. We pride ourselves in operating as one of the UK’s most environmentally friendly asbestos laboratories. Our facility is installed with air source heat pumps and solar photovoltaic cells (light energy converted to electricity), meaning our lab runs on our own clean energy source.

In an effort to reduce our transportation emissions, we have achieved UKAS accreditation for mobile laboratories which have been used on long-term projects and isolated sites where round the clock analysis is required i.e. offshore vessels, nuclear power stations.

All of our operational systems and safety processes we apply to sampling, testing and analysis of asbestos are certified to ISO 9001:2000 quality assurance standard so you be reassured that the services we provide are both trusted and of a high quality.
