An asbestos survey in Somerset is necessary by law before any building or renovation work is done. 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 in good condition is not harmful, however, 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.
For property owners in Somerset, an asbestos survey should be conducted by a professional asbestos company. Speak to us at ACS.
