Ayerst Environmental can help ensure that you meet your legal duty to protect employees, tenants and others from asbestos-related diseases.
We provide consultancy service to aid clients in adhering to the regulations. An effective way of collecting the information from which to manage the risk is by surveying buildings for asbestos.
Our team of experienced asbestos surveyors are qualified to carry out asbestos surveys of large and small buildings, industrial sites, offices, shops and other sites to the standards set out in the Health & Safety Executive Guidance HSG264. There are two types of survey.
Refurbishment and Demolition Survey
Ayerst Environmental can advise you which type of survey you require to help meet your legal obligations regarding asbestos identification and management. For example, some asbestos may need to be removed quickly whilst other material can remain in site subject to certain criteria. Please note that all our surveys contain photographs of areas sampled, together with recommendations of what to do next.
To comply with CAR2012 regulation 4, any identified or suspected Asbestos Containing Material must be re-inspected and its condition re-assessed periodically, to check that it has not deteriorated or been damaged.
The frequency of the inspection will depend on the location of the Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) and other factors which could affect their condition (i.e. the activities in the building, non-occupancy, changes to maintenance programs, new tenants or employees etc). Information obtained from Re-inspection data surveys enables the Management Plan to be updated.
