Business owners and managers need to have an asbestos survey in Somerset if the building they are in was built before 1999. Before this time most buildings had asbestos used in the construction or furnishing. Although there may be no asbestos in the air there is always the danger of damage to sections containing asbestos. A survey will identify all the asbestos in the building and will also record the state of the material. If you are planning on renovating a building you will need a survey to identify asbestos for the construction crew. This is mandatory for all refurbishment of buildings to ensure the worker’s safety.

In Somerset, asbestos survey and testing carried out by our fully trained professional asbestos experts will make sure that your premises and workers are protected from asbestos fibres.
