We specialise in all aspects of asbestos management on behalf of clients. We can provide the following services:

  • Management Asbestos Surveys, with or without bulk sampling of suspect asbestos containing materials as required.
  • Refurbishment Asbestos Surveys, for buildings undergoing repair, alteration and refurbishment works.
  • Asbestos Management Plans Assistance in preparing, including guidance on how to achieve compliance, and assistance in preparing Priority Assessments.
  • Ongoing Routine Inspections of identified asbestos containing materials to ensure compliance is up to date. Reviews of previous asbestos surveys, asbestos registers, existing asbestos management systems, etc.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 place a legal duty on employers to minimise exposure to asbestos to the lowest possible level. This usually involves an asbestos survey to identify the risk of exposure, and subsequently managing those risks appropriately.

The new Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 came into force in April 2012. The updated regulations introduced important changes to arrangements for non-licensed asbestos works. More detailed guidance on the new regulations can be found here.
