Asbestos is still causing unnecessary deaths

The HSE reports that there are around 5,000 deaths each year with direct links to asbestos inhalation at work. The majority of those deaths will be the result of breathing in asbestos fibres decades ago. The symptoms of diseases caused by asbestos take years to reveal themselves, by which time it’s often too late. Asbestos has been banned for use in construction since 1999 but it’s still present in the fabric of older buildings.

Asbestos is now beginning to be proactively managed in the UK. More and more bulding managers and home owners know about asbestos surveys and are using them to manage the potential presence of asbestos responsibly. Safety Surveys works with Harpenden businesses, residents and industries to manage and clear the threat of asbestos from homes, schools and workplaces.

Asbestos Surveying and testing

Types of Asbestos Surveys in Harpenden

Pre-Purchase Asbestos Survey

Planning to buy a property in Harpenden? If it was built prior to 2000 it could be that asbestos containing materials (ACMs) were used in its construction. Pre-purchase asbestos surveys are designed to provide buyers with peace of mind. Surveyors will assess whether or not asbestos is present, its condition, and its location.

The survey is non-intrusive; specialist surveyors will carry out a visual examination of the property. Once complete, your detailed report should be with you within 48 hours. Most ACMs are in an inert state, and are harmless. If there is action required, the report will explain exactly what needs to be done.

Asbestos Management Survey

If a 20th century building is being used as a shop, a warehouse, or for commercial purposes, it’s a requirement that an asbestos management survey is carried out by professional surveyors. This will ascertain whether or not asbestos containing materials (ACMs) were used in the construction of the building. If they were, they need to be identified, risk assessed and managed.

Most ACMs found in the fabric of older buildings are in an inert state and are not a health hazard, so long as they’re not disturbed. An asbestos management survey is non-intrusive. Surveyors carry our a visual assessment of the premises. Any ACMs are identified, their location logged, and recommendations for ongoing management are provided in our report.

Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Survey

Any 20th century building scheduled for demolition or refurbishment in Harpenden, requires a mandatory refurbishment and demolition survey (R&D). This prevents the hazardous local dispersal of asbestos fibres into the air where they could be inhaled.

An R&D survey is intrusive, which is to say that surveyors won’t just carry out a visual inspection; they need to examine every part of the building and plant. Survey findings are normally available within 48 hours of completion.

Asbestos Sampling Survey

Safety Surveys offers home owners, property developers and refurbishers in Harpenden the opportunity to sample areas suspected of containing asbestos. Lab analysis will provide absolute confirmation if the substance is asbestos, and detail whether or not it is hazardous.

We keep the process simple at Safety Surveys. Just contact us to arrange for the collection of a sample from your premises. We send it off for analysis, and get the result to you within two working days.
