  43. 43. competency of the surveying organisation and the surveyor
  44. 44. quality management systems
  45. 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.</li></ul>Surveyors guidance<br />
  46. 46. Asbestos Surveys<br />Now HSG 264 <br />Management Survey <br />Refurbishment and Demolition Survey<br />Previously MDHS 100<br />Type 1, 2 and 3<br />Surveyors guidance<br />
  47. 47. Asbestos Surveys<br /><ul><li>Management Survey - used for the purposes of managing asbestos within properties during normal occupation and maintenance
  48. 48. involves minor intrusive work and some disturbance. Samples are taken of all suspicious materials following the guidance within HSG264
  49. 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</li></ul>Surveyors guidance<br />
  50. 50. Asbestos Surveys – Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys<br />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.<br />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 <br />Surveyors guidance<br />

  52. 52. Domestic Premises<br /><ul><li>Specifically targeted at Local Authorities and Housing Associations managing large numbers of domestic properties
  53. 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. 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.</li></ul>Surveyors guidance<br />
  55. 55. Scoping & Commissioning <br />Surveys<br />Surveyors guidance<br />
  56. 56. Caveats andlimitations<br /><ul><li>Survey restrictions and caveats can seriously undermine the management of asbestos
  57. 57. Should only be included where absolutely necessary and MUST be agreed in writing before survey is commenced
  58. 58. Most can be avoided by proper planning and discussion
  59. 59. The restrictions any caveats or limitations create should be clearly documented in the report</li></ul>Surveyors guidance<br />
