Asbestos Surveys Watford
Are you looking for an asbestos survey to be carried out at your domestic or commercial site in the Watford area? If so, you have placed your trust in the right company in the form of Asbestos 365.
What our asbestos surveys in Watford include
Asbestos surveying is about testing all relevant materials to detect the potential presence of any Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs).
The type of survey that you will need will vary on a case-by-case basis. In some circumstances, it may not be necessary for you to have a complete asbestos survey on your Watford site. If you’ve had an asbestos survey in the past, or if you’re only working on or worried about one area, you may be better off asking us to take a rapid bulk sample.
Let’s break down the range of asbestos surveys and related solutions that we offer to domestic and commercial clients in Watford.
Our Asbestos Services in the Watford area
The Government introduced the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 in order to control the mortality rates associated with asbestos exposure, and one of the key elements of this regulation was about reducing future exposure through the management of asbestos in commercial and domestic properties.
Management surveys are a standard way to ensure this. Their purpose is to locate, as far as is reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspected ACMs in the given building. They involve minor intrusive work and some disturbance, but the extent of this will vary from premises to premises and depends on factors like the type of building and its accessibility. A management survey can be completed using a combination of sampling ACMs and presuming ACMs. Any materials presumed to contain asbestos must also have their condition assessed.
Otherwise known as an R&D survey, a refurbishment and demolition asbestos survey is required according to HSG264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide before any renovation, building, refurbishment or demolition work is undertaken in any buildings built before 2000.
This type of survey determines whether any ACMs may be present and is a fully intrusive and disruptive survey. It may even mean that all parts of the building’s structure need to be penetrated, which could include aggressive inspection techniques like lifted carpets, broken walls, and opened-up floors. 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. All furniture should be removed prior to the survey as well.
If you suspect that asbestos is present in individual items rather than your entire premises, you may be better off opting for our testing and bulk analysis service.
This type of survey can be more time and cost-effective, with our experienced surveyors carrying out an asbestos test on the suspected materials alone.
The samples are taken in a safe and controlled manner by our experienced team, who will then examine them for traces of asbestos. This is not a very invasive type of survey.
We also offer reinspection surveys in the Watford area. Reinspection surveys are recommended at the 12-month point after an Asbestos Management Survey has been carried out, in order to effectively manage any asbestos containing materials and to comply with regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulation 2012.
We also suggest regular reinspection surveys to anyone who is looking to responsibly manage the safety of their premises over time, at least every six to 12 months. Any ACMs identified or suspected ACMs need to be inspected periodically to check that they have not deteriorated or sustained damage.
