Asbestos Management Surveys

(Type 2) Asbestos Surveys

Are you searching for asbestos surveyors to provide Asbestos Management Surveys? Asbestos surveys are required by law because of the high risks associated with exposure to asbestos.

Asbestos Management Surveys – previously called Type 2 Surveys – are the most common type of asbestos survey. Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within a building. This survey aims to establish the presence of any asbestos that could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including any maintenance or installing new equipment, such as changing lightbulbs.

The Health and Safety Executive states that any Management Survey aims to ensure that:

  • No one is harmed by the continuing presence of asbestos
  • ACMs remain in a good condition
  • Nobody disturbs the ACMs by mistake

Once this survey has been completed, this can be used to create the property’s asbestos register so that the condition and presence of asbestos can be monitored. This is used to mitigate the risk of staff, tenants, or occupants being exposed to asbestos fibres.

Why do Asbestos Management Surveys need to be completed?

An Asbestos Management Survey is the first step towards compliance under Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations (2012) for non-domestic premises.

In order to effectively manage asbestos, you will need to know where it is, the extent and type of asbestos and the condition it is in. An Asbestos Management Survey will provide this information.

Legal responsibilities surrounding asbestos include:

  • Identifying ACMs
  • Assuming ACMs are present in areas that cannot be accessed and managing these accordingly
  • Undertaking remedial work to remove or contain any dangerous ACMs
  • Conducting risk assessments to assess for potential asbestos contamination
  • Keeping accurate records and maintaining an asbestos register

Our Asbestos Management Surveys will usually involve sampling and analysis, but they can also presume the presence or absence of ACMs. Our experienced asbestos surveyors can use their knowledge and experience to make these judgements. Any material that is presumed to contain asbestos must have its condition assessed.

The extent of intrusion and need for sampling will vary between premises and depend on the type of property and its use. If more intrusive work is required, an Asbestos Refurbishment & Demolition Survey will be needed.

Why manage asbestos?

It is still believed that half a million commercial buildings in the UK contain asbestos. Asbestos must be managed properly because it is still the UK’s number one cause of work-related deaths.

Every year thousands of people who have been exposed to asbestos in the past die due to illnesses, including asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer.

If you are responsible for the maintenance and repair of a property, you must manage the asbestos in it.
