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.

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 Bristol.

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.

A risk assessment must be undertaking by employeers for employees when work is likely to involve asbestos. This should include a plan of how the work is to be carried out as well as outline, and provide solutions to, any asbestos-related issues that may occur. All information must be kept up-to-date and available to anyone who may work or disturb the asbestos containing material (ACM).

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

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.
