Asbestos Surveys Stevenage
Asbestos is a deadly material that can be found in many buildings, particularly those built before the year 2000. Unfortunately, it’s very difficult to detect and identify unless you conduct an asbestos survey.
Asbestos surveys are important for identifying any potential risks from asbestos to ensure the health and safety of people living or working in a building.
Why are Asbestos Surveys Important?
These surveys allow businesses to pinpoint the existence and scope of asbestos-laden materials (ACMs) on their site, which helps them take measures to guard staff, customers, and other visitors from being exposed to dangerous fibres.
By making sure all ACMs are recognised and managed properly, businesses can spare themselves the expenses of fixing likely destruction caused by asbestos fibres dispersing in the air.
Asbestos surveys also provide assurance for those who work or live in a building that it is safe from such hazardous material.
What Our Asbestos Surveys Includes
After contacting us on 01923 911 013 for help with your asbestos survey or asbestos test, we can advise you on the type of survey you need.
Asbestos surveys generally entail the testing of all relevant materials, so that the presence of any Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) can be detected.
However, in some circumstances, it may not be necessary for you to have a complete asbestos survey carried out at your site.
If an asbestos survey has already previously been undertaken at your premises, or if you are only working on one area, it might be a better choice to arrange for us to take a rapid bulk sample.
Types of Asbestos Surveys
These surveys are all about identifying asbestos on a site and judging its presence, extent, and condition. The building won’t be physically damaged with this type of survey, as it is relatively low level in terms of intrusion.
This type of survey usually involves sampling and analysis to confirm whether Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) are present. However, it is not always possible to judge this completely – we may need to presume the presence or absence of asbestos.
If you suspect your Stevenage site might have some asbestos, you may be interested in a refurbishment or demolition survey. We undertake this type of survey before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out on the given site. As with other types of asbestos survey, it is geared towards determining whether any ACMs are present.
Unlike a management or pre-purchase survey, this type of survey is fully intrusive and disruptive. It may even mean that all parts of the building’s structure need to be penetrated. This means that these surveys should only happen in unoccupied areas – we need to ensure there are no risks to the safety of employees or members of the public.
With our testing and bulk analysis service, our experienced surveyors test suspected materials for asbestos. This type of survey is often the more cost-effective option, especially if you’re more concerned about specific, individual items rather than an entire premises.
This is not a very invasive type of survey. Samples are taken in a safe and controlled way by our experienced team who then examine them for traces of asbestos.
The final type of survey we offer in the Stevenage area is a reinspection survey. Reinspection surveys are useful if you’ve previously had asbestos on your site, or if you’re interested in more effectively managing the safety of your premises in the long term.
Regular reinspection surveys are a great way to keep on top of the threat of asbestos.
