    Regulation 11 – Prevention or reduction of exposure to asbestos
    State in clear language the available information and the limitations of its use. Explain any caveats.
    Assess tasks against location of asbestos and whether any caveats/limitations in information impinge on the task. Explain what to do if any caveats exist.
    If work on or near asbestos is required, have detailed procedures on who can and who controls the work – Licensed contractors or in-house

    • training and experience required by surveyors
    • 43. competency of the surveying organisation and the surveyor
    • 44. quality management systems
    • 45. HSE strongly recommends the use of UKAS accredited organisations. UKAS accreditation covers technical competence, management, integrity report production and ensures that surveyors are qualified with the right experience and knowledge and that the survey is fit for purpose.
    Surveyors guidance
  • 46. Asbestos Surveys
    Now HSG 264
    Management Survey
    Refurbishment and Demolition Survey
    Previously MDHS 100
    Type 1, 2 and 3
    Surveyors guidance
  • 47. Asbestos Surveys
    • Management Survey - used for the purposes of managing asbestos within properties during normal occupation and maintenance
    • 48. involves minor intrusive work and some disturbance. Samples are taken of all suspicious materials following the guidance within HSG264
    • 49. Management surveys are designed to identify all asbestos that may be disturbed during normal occupation and normal maintenance activities. As a result access is required to EVERY area accessed during maintenance and normal occupation – ceiling voids, lift shafts, lift motor room, service ducts etc
    Surveyors guidance
  • 50. Asbestos Surveys – Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys
    Refurbishment Survey – the scope of a refurbishment survey is the entire area, and all materials within such area, that will be disturbed or form part of the refurbishment process. Nothing should be excluded from this remit.
    Demolition Survey –The scope of a demolition survey is the entire building. This includes wall cavities, voids, screeds etc. Limitations and caveats usually render the survey unsuitable for purpose
    Surveyors guidance
  • 51. Scope of Works / Site Visit
    Survey Plan
    CheckSurvey Plan against Scope
    Commission Survey
    Undertake Survey
    Report Issue
    Check Report against Scope
    Surveyors guidance
  • 52. Domestic Premises
    • Specifically targeted at Local Authorities and Housing Associations managing large numbers of domestic properties
    • 53. Undertake a desktop study. Identify probable asbestos within groups of properties and detail the requirement for management surveys and refurbishment surveys to comply with management plan
    • 54. The requirement to protect employs and contractors does not stop when they enter a domestic property. If an employee or contractor is sent to a domestic property to conduct work they MUST be trained to recognise and deal with asbestos they come across or an assessment MUST be conducted showing that it is safe for them to proceed.
    Surveyors guidance
  • 55. Scoping & Commissioning
    Surveyors guidance
  • 56. Caveats andlimitations
    • Survey restrictions and caveats can seriously undermine the management of asbestos
    • 57. Should only be included where absolutely necessary and MUST be agreed in writing before survey is commenced
    • 58. Most can be avoided by proper planning and discussion
    • 59. The restrictions any caveats or limitations create should be clearly documented in the report
