Asbestos surveying and testing near Addlestone
Asbestos is one of the UK’s biggest silent killers. By breathing in asbestos fibres, you can be struck down by severe illness many years after exposure, including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. Under guidance set by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), there are two types of asbestos surveys: Asbestos Management Surveys and Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys.
Asbestos Management Surveys are surveys or inspections to locate, as far as reasonably practical, the presence and extent of any asbestos containing materials (ACMs). They aim to show up any asbestos that could be damaged during normal occupancy, and the findings of the survey are noted on the asbestos register. This is a condition of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, to ensure that all asbestos is managed properly.
Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys are conducted before any refurbishment or demolition work, and they are fully intrusive because they need to access spaces that might be difficult to reach. We can organise asbestos surveys in Weybridge to fit around your schedule, to minimise disruption.
