What Is Asbestos?

Though three types have been widely used in building materials there are actually types of asbestos. The main ones are Chrysotile (white), Amosite (brown) and Crocidolite (blue). Blue is usually the most dangerous followed by brown and then white.

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 Glasgow.

What's Involved In An Asbestos Survey?

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.

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.

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

Where Can Asbestos Be Found?

Generally speaking, people through Glasgow 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.
