Refurbishment surveys are particularly crucial when renovating or making substantial changes to a building, as they help identify and manage asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) before any work begins. Here are some important points to consider when conducting asbestos refurbishment surveys:

  1. Preventing Exposure: Refurbishment work can potentially disturb ACMs, releasing hazardous asbestos fibers into the air. A refurbishment survey helps identify the location and condition of ACMs, allowing for proper removal or containment before any renovation work starts, thus preventing asbestos exposure.
  2. Legal Requirements: In the UK, refurbishment surveys are legally required before any significant refurbishment or demolition work. Complying with these regulations is essential to avoid legal issues and protect the health and safety of workers and occupants.
  3. Comprehensive Inspection: Refurbishment surveys are more intrusive than management surveys and involve a thorough inspection of all areas where refurbishment work will take place. This includes destructive testing and sampling to ensure a comprehensive assessment. We at Knight Specialist Services are you experts for this service.
  4. Professional Expertise: It’s crucial to have trained and experienced professionals conduct refurbishment surveys. This ensures accurate identification of ACMs and proper documentation, which is essential for safety compliance.
  5. Safe Removal or Management: Depending on the findings of the refurbishment survey, you’ll need to develop a plan for safe ACM removal or management. This should be carried out by licensed asbestos removal specialists or experts.
  6. Clear Reporting: A detailed report is an important outcome of the survey. It should clearly outline the locations and conditions of ACMs, along with recommendations for their safe handling or removal.
  7. Safety Measures During Work: If ACMs are found and need to be removed during refurbishment, strict safety measures must be in place to protect workers and occupants. This includes proper containment, protective equipment, and disposal procedures. Knight Specialist Services Ltd can guide you on any safety measures required.
  8. Communication: Knight Specialist Services Ltd ensure Effective communication with all parties involved in the refurbishment project is vital. This includes contractors, workers, building owners, and regulatory authorities.
