      ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT SURVEYS

      Asbestos Management Surveys are an essential component of responsible property management. Where the presence of asbestos in buildings constructed before the year 2000 is relatively common. These surveys are conducted to identify and assess the risks associated with asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within a property or building.

      The primary objective of an asbestos management survey is to create a comprehensive record of ACMs. Their location, condition, and any associated risks. Trained asbestos surveyors perform these surveys meticulously, employing a systematic approach to inspect all accessible areas of a building. This includes concealed spaces such as wall cavities and ceiling voids. The surveyors take samples where necessary to confirm the presence of asbestos and its type.

      Affordable Asbestos Survey Glossop | Peace of Mind Testing for Comfort

      Affordable Asbestos Survey Glossop – Derbyshire

      Knight Specialist Services, a leading provider in asbestos surveys and testing, recently completed a significant project in the Glossop area. Their expertise was sought for a property at 13 Bernard Street, Glossop, which houses NSPP Vocational Training. This unique building features a two-storey residential flat on the first floor and a modern office space on the ground floor.

      Modernisation and Asbestos-Free Assurance

      The recent modernisation of this building played a crucial role in the survey outcomes. Due to the building’s recent updates, Knight Specialist Services’ thorough inspection and testing process revealed no presence of asbestos. This result is particularly noteworthy as it underscores the building’s compliance with current health and safety standards, ensuring a safe environment for both residents and office workers. The absence of asbestos in a recently modernised building like this is a testament to current construction practices’ focus on safety and sustainability.

      The Asbestos Management Survey

      For this project, Knight Specialist Services employed an Asbestos Management Survey. This type of survey is particularly suited for maintaining a property’s safety and compliance. It involves a detailed examination of the building to identify any presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) that could be disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation.

      Importance of Asbestos Management Surveys in Commercial Properties

      Conducting an Asbestos Management Survey is crucial for commercial properties, particularly those like the one at 13 Bernard Street, which have both residential and commercial spaces. The survey is essential for:

      1. Compliance with Health and Safety Regulations: It ensures that the property complies with health and safety regulations, particularly the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
      2. Risk Assessment and Management: It helps in assessing the risk of any asbestos present and formulating a management plan to prevent its disturbance.
      3. Safety of Occupants: The survey prioritises the safety of the building’s occupants, whether residents, employees, or visitors, by identifying and managing any asbestos-related risks.
      4. Maintenance and Renovation Works: It provides crucial information for any future maintenance or renovation works, ensuring that no ACMs are disturbed unknowingly.

      Asbestos, a once widely-used material in construction, has been identified as a significant health hazard, making asbestos surveys on industrial premises critically important. Asbestos surveys are essential for identifying and managing asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) to ensure the safety of occupants and workers. These surveys are particularly crucial in industrial settings, where the legacy of asbestos use is often more pronounced due to historical construction practices.

      Asbestos could be lurking in various parts of an industrial premises, often hidden in plain sight. Common locations include insulation materials in pipes and boilers, ceiling tiles, floor tiles, roofing materials, and even in the cement used in construction. Its presence is not just confined to older buildings; some premises constructed or renovated before the year 2000 may still contain asbestos, as its use was only fully banned in the UK in 1999.

      The importance of conducting asbestos surveys in industrial premises cannot be overstated. Prolonged exposure to asbestos fibres can lead to serious respiratory conditions, including asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma, a particularly aggressive form of cancer. These health risks highlight the necessity of early detection and management of asbestos within industrial environments.

      Asbestos surveys come in different forms, including management surveys, which aim to locate the presence and extent of any ACMs in a building that might be disturbed or damaged during normal occupancy. There is also the more intrusive refurbishment and demolition survey, which is required when a building is due to be refurbished or demolished. This type of survey is more extensive and aims to identify all ACMs within the structure.

      Conducting these surveys is not just about health and safety; it’s also a legal requirement under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. These regulations mandate the duty holder of non-domestic premises to manage the risk from asbestos by identifying its presence. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in significant fines and legal action, not to mention the potential harm to human health.

      The process of identifying asbestos involves a thorough inspection of the premises by qualified professionals who take samples of suspected materials for analysis. This is a meticulous process that requires expertise and knowledge of where asbestos is most likely to be found and how it can be safely managed.

      Once identified, the management of asbestos involves creating a detailed asbestos register and plan, which outlines where the asbestos is located, its condition, and how it will be managed. This could involve encapsulating the asbestos to prevent fibre release, regular monitoring, or removal by a licensed contractor.

      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.
