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