An asbestos survey in Trafford is essential in keeping the occupants of your building safe. It is also a legal requirement, especially if you are planning on renovating or demolishing your building. Asbestos was widely used as a building material additive because of its great properties. While this was so, it was later discovered that asbestos poses great health risks to those who have been in contact with the material. When it is damaged or aged, it tends to crumble, releasing tiny fibres into the atmosphere. It is when these fibres are inhaled and lodged in the lining of the person’s lungs, that it becomes deadly. This leads to diseases such as cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma.
To ensure you meet the requirements of the law in Trafford, an asbestos survey must be scheduled. We offer a number of asbestos surveys, and while the management survey is the most popular, we would recommend the refurb demolition survey if you are planning on adding to your building. This survey is more intrusive than the other surveys offered. It will involve destructive inspection, as required, to gain access to all areas. While it does not assess the condition of the asbestos, it does note areas of damage or where additional asbestos debris could possibly be found. All the asbestos surveys that we provide conform to the HSG264 industry-standard as laid down by the HSE. We will also assist you with a management plan, to ensure that you are aware of the best way forward for control of any asbestos-containing materials on your property.
