At Kent Asbestos Solutions, we undertake all manner of asbestos surveys whilst adhering to HSE Guidance HSG264 and all of our consultants hold the BOHS P402 certificate as a minimum.
Thinking of planning some refurbishment works or selling your property? You'll want to have a survey carried out:
This is the standard asbestos survey that should be carried out for the continued management of asbestos in premises. The purpose of the asbestos survey is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of suspect ACMs in the building and assess their condition. Although sampling is the most common approach that has been used for surveys, an asbestos survey can also involve presuming the presence of asbestos.
This type of survey can be used for the duty holder or contractor to undertake general, non intrusive maintenance works.
Refurbishment & Demolition Surveys
This type of survey is used to ascertain the location and extent of all ACMs in the planned work area (or whole building in the case of demolition) so that they can be removed prior to works commencing. This type of survey will tend to utilise more intrusive and destructive techniques in order to locate any ACMs within the fabric of the building.
Due to the intrusive nature of this type of survey, it’s recommended that the building/work area be unoccupied during the course of the survey.
Asbestos Reinspection Surveys
As a duty holder, a suitably trained person must annually reinspect the known ACMs in your building and record any changes in the condition, risk etc. Here at Kent Asbestos Solutions, we can undertake these for you, removing the burden from you whilst ensuring you still remain compliant and the risk be managed.
