An asbestos survey in Chester is obligatory if you are the owner of an older property. This is especially so if you are planning renovations in the future. The health and safety of the occupants of your building is a large part of your responsibility as a property owner. The HSE requires, not just the removal of asbestos from your property, but the duty to manage it. This means that you need adequate and effective management plans that are sufficient and robust enough to prevent employees and tradesmen from being inadvertently exposed to asbestos.
As a property owner in Chester, an asbestos survey is the first step in your obligatory duty to manage. If you are uncertain about where to begin, ACS is here to assist. A management survey is the standard survey that we offer. The point of this survey is to locate the presence and extent of any suspected asbestos containing materials in your building. Many older buildings were constructed with building materials containing asbestos. This is because asbestos was regarded as a wonder material with excellent properties. It was when exposure to asbestos containing materials presented lethal consequences that its use in building materials was banned. However, many buildings still contain asbestos containing materials and as such need to be managed. Asbestos itself is not dangerous. It is when it is disturbed that its fibres are inhaled that the problems begin.
An asbestos survey in Chester will assess the condition of any asbestos containing materials in your building. We can also assist with compiling an effective and thorough management plan that allows you to comply with current legislation. When you need an expert for an asbestos survey, contact ACS.
