All non domestic buildings are required to have an asbestos survey or assessment. This is a legal requirement mandated by the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. These regulations were introduced to protect people who are likely to come into contact with asbestos, maintenance workers eg builders, plumbers and electricians are most at risk.
Asbestos can be found anywhere, it can be found within many materials which were widely used in construction and refurbishment from the 1950s to the mid 1980s. Some examples of its wide range of uses are:
- floor tiles
- ceiling coatings
At this time no-one was aware of its cancenogenic properties; and unfortunately because of its use in refurbishment, the age of a building is no guarantee that asbestos will not be present.
So wherever your responsibilities lie, perhaps with a stately home, a factory, a hospital, an office block, a school, or another type of building, a survey or assesment is required.
cba asbestos ltd have the wealth of knowledge and expertise to carry out the survey of your building. Our Asbestos surveys are designed to locate any sources of asbestos, and make an assessment of any risk they impose. Asbestos surveys must conform to Health and Safety Executive standards, these are set out in Asbestos: the Surveying Guide. Following the survey you will be able to fulfil your legal duties by compiling a register of the asbestos containing materials within your buildings.
cba asbestos ltd are able to complete a survey within days of receiving an instruction, as our surveyors are all local professionals. cba asbestos ltd is additionally independent of any contracting organisation. If asbestos found is in sensible condition, and isn’t positioned in an space where damage will be caused, the set up can make sure that it is safe for the material to remain, and can highlight how this material will be managed for the future lifetime of the building.
