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.

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.

Asbestos Legislation

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.

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 Is Asbestos?

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.

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.
