Asbestos Surveys (HSG264)
All surveys are carried out by fully qualified and trained staff in accordance with the HSE’s guidance publication HSG 264 (Asbestos: The Survey Guide) and our UKAS Accreditation.
The purpose of this survey is to locate as far as reasonably practicable the presence and extent of any suspect asbestos containing materials (ACM) in buildings, including those which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, and including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess its condition.
Surveys will often involve MINOR INTRUSIVE WORK and some disturbance and may involve sampling and analysis to confirm the presence or absence of any ACMs, and can also involve presuming the presence or absence of asbestos.
Refurbishment or Demolition Surveys
These types of surveys are carried out before any intrusive maintenance or repair work, refurbishment or demolition work, plant removal or dismantling etc., is carried out on a building, and is used to locate and describe as far as reasonably practicable, all ACMs in the areas where works are to be carried out.
These surveys will be FULLY INTRUSIVE and involve destructive inspection as necessary to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach and will involve sampling and analysis to confirm the presence or absence of any ACMs.
Asbestos Survey Reports and Management Plans
Undertaking asbestos survey reports and developing asbestos management plans are the first steps in complying with the legal requirements surrounding asbestos.
QUALSURV provides bespoke asbestos surveys to identify the presence of asbestos.
Asbestos management plans
If Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) are identified, management plans can be formulated, as can recommendations for their removal.
