Asbestos Contamination to Demolition Site in Guildford
Urgent Asbestos Survey Required – HSE Stops Works
Key Asbestos received a call from a client requesting an urgent Asbestos Survey in Guildford due to Health and Safety Executive (HSE) arriving on their site and stopping works. The client had not had a fully intrusive a pre-demolition asbestos survey carried out before works started which is a Statutory requirement for any demolition. The building, which was originally a large house, was in the process of being demolished when HSE arrived on site. The Building company was instructed to obtain an asbestos survey for the site before works could continue.

Asbestos Debris in the Building Waste
When Key Asbestos arrived on site the building was semi-demolished with piles of building waste/debris throughout the entire site. Our surveyor inspected all areas as far as reasonably practicable within the health and safety guidelines, sampling felt debris, soffit board debris, roof tile debris and cement sheeting littered across the site. A sample of floor tiles was taken from a section of floor visible between the waste/debris that contained Chrysotile Asbestos in addition to some asbestos cement also identified. This raised concerns with us and the client that there could be potential for other possible asbestos containing floor tiles, asbestos cement sheeting (or other Asbestos Containing Materials) throughout the site that were inaccessible due to the building waste/debris pile which were not fully accessible.
