An asbestos survey in Newcastle must be considered if you suspect any asbestos containing materials are in your building. As the person responsible for managing any maintenance and repair of a building, it is your responsibility and legal duty to manage any asbestos in it under regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. While asbestos is in good condition, it is not harmful. It is when it is damaged that it becomes dangerous, as asbestos releases airborne fibres which can kill. Many older buildings, especially those constructed in the 1960’s and 70’s, were built using asbestos containing materials.
