How loud is too loud?
Noise above 85 dBA over time will cause hearing loss. In general, the louder the noise, the less time required before hearing loss...more

The office that covers this area is: Cardiff
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.
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).
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.

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.
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.
