Asbestos Surveys Across the UK

Asbestos Legislation

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (Reg 4) places an explicit duty on those responsible (the duty holder) for any commercial premises to identify and manage asbestos containing materials that may be present in 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 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.

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.

What Is Asbestos?

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.

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.

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
