For comprehensive information on asbestos surveys, including types of surveys, guidance, and legislation, you can refer to various resources provided by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in the UK and other informative sites.

  1. HSE’s Asbestos Survey Guide: This is a detailed guide aimed at those conducting asbestos surveys and those responsible for managing asbestos in non-domestic premises. It covers aspects like survey planning, execution, reporting, and using the survey information. The guide is essential for ensuring competence and quality assurance in asbestos surveys. You can find it here: Asbestos: The survey guide.
  2. Legislation and Safety Guidelines: The HSE website provides information on relevant legislation for asbestos safety. This includes the Control of Asbestos Regulations, which detail legal duties and how to comply with them. Other regulations covered are the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH), the Health and Safety at Work Act, and the Construction Design and Management Regulations. For detailed information, visit the HSE’s Introduction to asbestos safety page.
  3. Types of Asbestos Surveys: There are mainly two types of asbestos surveys: Management Asbestos Survey and Refurbishment and Demolition Asbestos Survey. The former is generally for managing asbestos in buildings, often involving minimal sampling and minor intrusive work. The latter is required before any major refurbishment or demolition work and involves more detailed and intrusive inspection. For more details on when each type of survey is required, visit HASpod’s article on the two types of asbestos survey.
  4. Selecting a Competent Surveyor: It’s important to use accredited asbestos surveying organizations for conducting surveys. The UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) is recognized for accrediting asbestos inspection bodies in Great Britain. For guidance on selecting a competent surveyor, refer to the HSE’s guide mentioned above.
  5. International Legislation: Asbestos is also regulated under international law, such as the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal. For a broader understanding of international regulations, Wikipedia provides an overview of asbestos laws across various countries. Check out the section on Asbestos and the law on Wikipedia.
