Did you know that any building built or refurbished before the year 2000 could still contain asbestos?
Currently there are 2 types of Asbestos Surveys that we at Veritas are able to provide but to help you decide Asbestos Survey you need and how we can help please continue reading;
If your building is occupied you’ll need an Asbestos Management Survey
If you are considering Demolition or Refurbishment works you’ll need aDemolition/Refurbishment Asbestos Survey
Asbestos Survey Types
Below are the two Asbestos Survey types that we at Veritas are able to offer; however if you require more information then please don’t hesitate to get in contact.
Asbestos Management Surveys.
An Asbestos Management Survey which is undertaken to address the risks from Asbestos associated with the continued use of the building (i.e. normal occupancy and activities and associated maintenance and development). These are called “Asbestos Management Surveys” which are performed to ensure that no one is harmed by the continued presence of asbestos in premises (ie ACMs remain in good condition and that no-one inadvertently disturbs ACMs during maintenance and other work).
The purpose of the Asbestos Management Survey is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building. Asbestos Management Surveys may involve minor intrusive work and some disturbance to allow maintenance or installation work.
Demolition Asbestos Survey
There are also circumstances where a far more intrusive survey is necessary to establish the full extent and complete presence of asbestos. This type of asbestos survey is necessary prior to any demolition or refurbishment work being carried out.
These are called “demolition/refurbishment surveys” and will be quite different and much more intrusive and destructive compared with Asbestos management surveys as their intention is to locate all the ACM’s so that they can be removed before the demolition or refurbishment takes place.
All buildings normally require a asbestos management survey as part of the on-going arrangements to manage asbestos. However refurbishment/demolition asbestos surveys will only be required as necessary when the needs or use of the building changes.
