An asbestos survey is required on all commercial properties in order to comply with The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012) under the terms set by the UK Government as part of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. A more comprehensive definition can be found under Regulation 4 of CAR 2012; Duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic premesis
The Control of Asbestos Regulations came into force on 13th November 2006 as an updated legislation of the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations (CAWR) 2002. This has since been updated further to The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
The HSE have recently released surveying guidance document HSG 264, which superceded MDHS 100.
Our asbestos surveys are conducted by P402 / S301 trained surveyors with at least 5 years experience in the asbestos industry. All of our surveys are carried out in full accordance with HSG 264 and asbestos samples are analysed by our UKAS accredited laboratory.
We are often complimented on our survey reports for being clear, concise and providing all the required information in a sensible order. The reports include an asbestos register and material risk assessment, sample analysis details, colour photographs of all samples, recommendations and advice for all asbestos material identified. Our surveys also contain annotated CAD drawn floor plans.
We offer a cost effective and efficient service. Our prices are inclusive of all sample analysis; we do not charge extra per sample taken. Surveys will be booked in usually within one week (often sooner) and reports can be completed in as little as 48 hours (24 hour reporting service available at additional cost). Reports are made available in both PDF format for ease of distribution and re-printing, and also signed and bound hard copy.
We hold both Professional Indemnity insurance to £1M and Public Liability insurance to £10M.
