Asbestos Surveys

  1. 1. Asbestos Surveys
  2. 2. Asbestos Surveys <ul><li>Asbestos is a highly dangerous material as it can cause health problems. When it is broken or damages, small fibres come loose and we breathe them in. These small fibres can easily embed themselves into our lungs and windpipe, causing scarring which leads to asbestosis and cancers. Because of these problems it is essential that Asbestos is removed by a proper authority, especially in non domestic places. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Asbestos Surveys <ul><li>Asbestos surveys are carried out by officials in non domestic buildings, to ensure that there is no asbestos present, and if there is, that it is removed immediately in the proper manner. If you have something which you expect might contain asbestos, then you should definitely book an asbestos survey. The surveyors will be able to detect if any asbestos is present. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Asbestos Surveys <ul><li>The asbestos surveyors will first carry out a Management Survey, to see if any asbestos can be found. If the results of the survey are positive, they will then perform a Demolition or Refurbishment Survey. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Asbestos Surveys <ul><li>If you are in control of a non domestic building then you are required by law to follow the asbestos regulation code. This means it is your responsibility to determine whether there is any asbestos on your premises, and if you suspect that there might be, to estimate the amount of material, and its whereabouts. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Asbestos Surveys <ul><li>You must also assume that something contains asbestos, if you have a slight suspicion, unless you find evidence to prove that it does not contain any asbestos. It is also your responsibility to prevent the risk of anyone being affected by the asbestos fibres until a safe removal of the material has been carried out. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Asbestos Surveys <ul><li>You must keep your asbestos safety plan up to date and ensure that everyone entering the building is aware of it. If anyone is planning actions which might disturb the asbestos you ensure that these persons are aware of the location and condition of the asbestos. </li></ul>
