Management asbestos surveys
The simplest type of asbestos survey, this is usually a visual inspection noting any possible asbestos risks of the property
– when under normal use.
Management surveys (previously defined as type 2 surveys) involve a combination of sampling materials (where accessible) and presuming
materials (where inaccessible). Then, we confirm via analysis where asbestos is located in order for effective management plans to
be drawn up.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR 2012), Regulation 4 places a duty on the owners of non-domestic premises, who have maintenance and repair responsibilities, to assess and manage the risks from the presence of asbestos via an asbestos management plan.
At times, intrusive inspections are conducted when locations are not visibly accessible – such as above suspended ceiling tiles, within service boxing covers etc. Therefore, although we plan to minimise disruption, you must plan for some degree of damage that may occur.
Management asbestos surveys are not suitable for construction or refurbishment work, or extensive maintenance work. For this you will need an in-depth refurbishment asbestos survey.
