Asbestos Surveys

Safer Asbestos Solutions can assist with all types of asbestos surveys. Our fully qualified and experienced teams undertake asbestos surveys throughout the UK from our offices in Newcastle upon Tyne. Re-Inspection Survey is part of the management of asbestos following the discovery of asbestos containing materials within any other type of survey. The re-Inspection survey assesses the condition and state of the material encountered and updates the clients asbestos register to the current materials risk assessment. This type of survey assists the client in the day to day management of asbestos. Our teams can conduct re-inspection surveys from our own previous surveys or from third party inspections.

Our teams can undertake the following types of asbestos survey:

  • Management Survey - for the day to day management of asbestos within all types of property built before the year 2000. This type of survey will identify all reasonably accessible asbestos products alongside provision of asbestos risk assessments and production of the asbestos register within your property. The management survey is a key part of the Asbestos Management Plan (the legally required document all sites pre-2000 must possess). The survey includes the required reports, risk assessments, plans and sampling for the purposes of producing an Asbestos Management Plan (AMP).
  • Refurbishment Survey - is required prior to any refurbishment works taking place within a property pre-2000. The survey is intrusive within the areas of the upcoming works in order to identify any asbestos within the building and any asbestos likely to be encountered by the refurbishment contractors. The survey is more in depth than the management type survey and is required even where a management survey has found no asbestos.
  • Demolition Survey - is required prior to full or partial demolition of a structure or building. The survey is a legal requirement under the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR2012). The survey is fully intrusive and will create large amounts of physical damage in order to access every required area where asbestos may be present. As such this type of survey should only be undertaken in vacant buildings.

Our surveying teams have a vast knowledge of asbestos within all types of buildings. All staff are fully competent and qualified to carry out all manner of asbestos surveys on all types of building. All the work we carry out is to the highest possible standard and we are a UKAS Accredited Inspection Body (No.7843) working to ISO17020. The company runs a quality management system that is aligned to the pertinent requirements of ISO9001 as part of our accreditation.
