The Deadly Legacy of Asbestos

It’s known as the ‘silent killer’ because 5,000 people each year are currently dying of asbestos-related illnesses, which were caused over 50 years ago. The symptoms are slow to exhibit, but sustained asbestos inhalation can cause chronic and sometimes terminal diseases. Current UK legislation ensures that Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) in the workplace are identified, and managed responsibly.

The majority of pre-2000 British housing was built using materials that contain asbestos. This is because asbestos was initially considered a cheap and effective insulator. Once the terrible effects of this hazardous material were discovered, millions of homes already had it ‘hard-baked’ into their roofing, floor tiles, plasterwork and insulating boards. Asbestos was banned in 1999.

Asbestos Surveying and testing

Types of Asbestos Surveys in Welwyn Garden City

Pre-Purchase Asbestos Survey

If the property you plan to buy was constructed before 2000, there’s a risk that asbestos containing materials (ACMs) were used as part of the build. A pre-purchase asbestos survey provides buyers with peace of mind. It assesses whether or not ACMs are present, their location, and their condition.

The pre-purchase asbestos survey is a visual, non-intrusive process carried out by specialist surveyors. Your report should be ready within 2 working days of survey completion. Most ACMs are inert and non-hazardous; if any action is required, however, the report will include recommendations.

Asbestos Management Survey

Where a building that was constructed prior to 2000 is now being used for commercial, retail or warehousing purposes, it is required to have an asbestos management survey carried out. This is because there is a likelihood that asbestos containing materials (ACMs) were used as part of the build. If present, these need to be identified and managed.

The majority of ACMs are in an inert state and are therefore non-hazardous, so long as they remain undisturbed. A non-intrusive asbestos management survey documents where ACMs are likely to be present, and makes recommendations concerning their ongoing management. Any potentially hazardous asbestos discovered on Welwyn Garden City premises is sent to our lab for analysis.

Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Survey

An asbestos refurbishment and demolition survey (R&D) is a mandatory requirement prior to the demolition or refurbishment of any pre-2000 building in Welwyn Garden City. This is to stop hazardous asbestos fibres being released into the air and potentially inhaled in the local area.

An R&D survey needs to examine every part of the building and plant, which means that the process is both visual and intrusive. The survey findings are published in a report which is normally available within 2 working days of completion.

Asbestos Sampling Survey

Safety Surveys provides asbestos sampling for property developers, homeowners and refurbishers in Welwyn Garden City. Where there is a risk that asbestos is present, a lab analysis will quickly confirm or deny whether the substance is asbestos, and if it is hazardous.

Safety Surveys makes asbestos sampling simple. All you need to do is contact us to arrange collection of a sample from your premises, or property. This is then analysed and the results are generally available within 2 working days.
