Asbestos Surveys Across the UK

What's Involved In An Asbestos Survey?

For a refurbishment/demolition, or type 3, survey, a more destruction method is used over a management survey, as the name suggests. One of our asbestos surveyors will use means such as drilling floor slabs or knocking through walls to access areas where planned work will be undertaken. This ensures that when the building is converted of knocked down that the next team in won't risk running into any asbestos that could be hazardous to their health and slow the project.

An asbestos management, or type 2, survey will have one of surveyors taken samples of suspected asbestos throughout a building before sending them off to a lab. Whilst at the property, each room and the materials used will be noted. If a room is locked or otherwise inaccessible this will be noted too as there will remain a possibility of asbestos within.

Asbestos Legislation

Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, it's the duty of the site owner of a commercial premise to identify and manage asbestos in and around the property.

Employers must undertake risk assessments before commencing work which exposes, or is liable to expose, employees to asbestos. This risk assessment must include:

  • A plan of work detailing how the work is to be carried out
  • Indication of any asbestos-related issues
  • Provide solutions to these issues
  • How to prevent exposure to asbestos or reduce it to as low a level as is reasonably practicable

What Is Asbestos?

There are 6 types of asbestos - but only 3 have been widely used in building materials: white (Chrysotile), brown (Amosite) and blue (Crocidolite). Strictly speaking blue is the most dangerous, followed by brown and then white.

The trade and use of asbestos has been restricted or banned in many jurisdictions in the UK. Asbestos is basically a set of six naturally occurring silicate minerals used for their desirable physical properties. Though mined from rock, when broken down it breaks apart into tiny fibres.

Where Can Asbestos Be Found?

  • Toilet cisterns can contain asbestos-reinforced resin materials
  • Insulation in floor and wall cavities, lofts and insulating boards
  • Artex or similar decorative / textures coating on ceilings and sometimes walls
  • External / internal wall panelling particularly around windows
  • Water tanks can be made from asbestos cement and is often found in pre-1980 houses
  • Flash Guards on fuse wires and panelling behind fuse boxes
  • Sprayed fire insulation
  • Floor tiles, mastics and sealants
  • Pipe works, boilers, ducts and heat exchanges
