Commercial asbestos surveys are essential for maintaining a safe environment in buildings where asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) are present. These surveys are not only a legal requirement under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, but they also play a critical role in protecting the health of employees and the public. Asbestos, if disturbed or deteriorating, can release fibers into the air, which, when inhaled, can cause serious diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. These diseases are often fatal and have long latency periods, hence the importance of early identification and management.
The duty to manage asbestos is a legal requirement for non-domestic buildings, where owners and managers must ensure that the risks from asbestos are properly assessed and managed. This involves identifying whether asbestos is present, assessing the risks associated with it, and taking the necessary steps to ensure that anyone using the building is not exposed to asbestos fibers. This could include maintaining ACMs in a good state of repair to prevent fiber release or removing ACMs where necessary.
Knight Specialist Services Ltd provides a comprehensive range of asbestos surveying services tailored to meet the needs of clients Huddersfield and surrounbding locations. The company’s expertise extends to all types of commercial properties, from office buildings and retail outlets to industrial sites and public institutions. By conducting thorough asbestos surveys, Knight Specialist Services ensures that businesses in these areas comply with their legal obligations and provide a safe environment for their employees and customers.
Following the completion of an initial asbestos survey, Knight Specialist Services can assist clients in developing robust Asbestos Management Plans. These plans are crucial for outlining procedures for monitoring the condition of ACMs, maintaining a safe environment, and establishing protocols for emergency situations or planned refurbishments. The plans are designed to be comprehensive yet understandable, ensuring that all stakeholders can effectively implement them.
Moreover, Knight Specialist Services’ expertise extends to ongoing support post-survey. This includes updating the asbestos register as changes occur, conducting re-inspections to ensure continued compliance, and providing training for staff to manage asbestos-related risks. The company’s commitment to facilitating a comprehensive understanding of asbestos risks and management strategies demonstrates its essential role in aiding clients to uphold their duty to manage asbestos within their buildings effectively.

An example would be if you come across some suspicious looking floor tiles under your carpets, laminate flooring or vinyl. You can see a picture here of what an Asbestos Floor Tiles look like. Or you may already have an asbestos survey in place, however during your refurbishment works, you may come across some material which may not have been identified on the original survey and requires a one off Asbestos Testing
This level of services can be undertaken from £130.00 (you pay £130.00 with no VAT on our costs) + £25 per sample. We offer a 3-4 day turnaround or a 24 hour turnaround from the UKAS Laboratory.
Once your results have been received and should the asbestos testing identify positive asbestos fibres, Knight Specialist Services Ltd can provide you with the advice and recommendations for the safe removal, encapsulation or in some instances the asbestos material can remain in situ if in good condition and unlikely to be disturbed in the future.
