Asbestos causes 5,000 unnecessary deaths each year

The HSE report on deaths caused by asbestos inhalation at work makes for depressing reading. Many of the current cases are as a result of poor asbestos management in the workplace decades ago. The symptoms of asbestos-related diseases can take a long time to emerge, and once they do it’s often too late for effective treatment. Since 1999 asbestos has been banned for use in construction. We are still living with it in the fabric of older buildings, though.

Asbestos is beginning to be more clearly understood and managed in the UK. The majority of building managers and home-buyers know about the hazards of asbestos and work responsibly to minimise the risks surrounding it. Safety Surveys offers Hitchin residents, industries and businesses the opportunity to manage the threat of asbestos effectively in schools, homes and workplaces.

Types of Asbestos Surveys in Hitchin

Pre-Purchase Asbestos Survey

If you’re thinking of buying an older property in Hitchin (pre 2000), it’s a good idea to check whether asbestos containing materials (ACMs) were use to build it. A pre-purchase asbestos survey will give you peace-of-mind as to whether asbestos is present, is hazardous, and where it’s located.

A pre-purchase survey comprises a non-intrusive, visual inspection of the property carried out by a specialist surveyor. Once complete, you can expect your full report within 2 working days. Most ACMs are found to be inert, and therefore harmless. If you need to take any action, the report will clarify what you should do.

Asbestos Management Survey

If you own, or manage a workplace or public building located in an older building (pre 2000) you are required to have an asbestos management survey carried out by professional surveyors. This will check whether asbestos containing materials (ACMs) were used in the building of the structure. If it’s discovered that they were, they need to be risk-assessed and managed.

Most ACMs in older buildings are found to be inert (non-hazardous). It’s important to locate them, however, because if disturbed they could pose a risk. An asbestos management survey is a non-intrusive, visual assessment of your premises, carried out by specialist surveyors. If ACMs are found, their location is logged and recommendations for managing them are included in the report.

Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Survey

The scheduling of a pre-2000 building for refurbishment or demolition must, by law, include a refurbishment and demolition survey (R&D). This is to prevent the potential dispersal of asbestos fibres into the air where they may be inhaled.

The R&D survey involves a physical examination of the building and plant in order to ascertain whether asbestos is present in the structure. The results are normally available within two working days of survey completion.

Asbestos Sampling Survey

If you suspect the presence of asbestos in your Hitchin property, Safety Surveys will manage a sampling survey. The lab analysis and subsequent report will demonstrate conclusively whether or not asbestos is present.

It’s a simple process. All you have to do is to contact us and arrange a time for surveyors to collect a sample which they will remove safely. It is then sent of for analysis and the results should be with you within 2 working days of collection.
