Asbestos Surveys Across the UK

Where Can Asbestos Be Found?

Generally speaking, people through the UK think Asbestos is just for insulation and found in the roof or a wall. Though true, Asbestos can also be used in toilet cisterns, Artex, water tanks (pre-1980), fire insulation, floor tiles, boilers and flash guards.

Surveyor Qualifications

Each member of our asbestos team are holders of the BOHS (British Occupational Hygiene Society) P402 qualification - the statutory proficiency certificate in 'Building Surveys and Bulk Sampling for Asbestos'. Our experienced and professional consultants are here to help so if you have any queries please call us on 0800 043 8100 or send your query to Asbestos-Survey@e2consultants.co.uk.

We're qualified in asbestos refurbishment, management and demolition surveys for industrial, commercial and domestic buildings covering the UK. Where required can also undertake a Commercial EPC in a cost-effective package.

What Is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a set of six naturally occurring silicate minerals mined from rocks and used commercially for their desirable physical properties. The trade and use of asbestos has been restricted or banned in many jurisdictions in the UK.

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.

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's Involved In An Asbestos Survey?

For an asbestos management survey, formally a type 2 survey, one of our surveyors will take small samples of suspected asbestos from a property to be sent to a lab for testing. They will also note each room in the building and the materials used in its construction - any area unaccessible will be marked as such to indicate the possibility of asbestos.

A refurbishment/demolition survey, formally a type 3 survey, will be, as the name suggests, more destruction than a management survey. This will involve a surveyor accessing areas where future work is to be undertaken by knocking through a wall or drilling into floor slabs. This is to ensure that when the property is destroyed or altered that the next team in won't risk tampering with asbestos themselves that could be damaging to their health.
