An asbestos survey in Didsbury will be completed according to the guidelines as set out by the HSE. When you are planning on renovating your building, first get in touch with us to schedule an asbestos survey. As the duty holder of your building, it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of the people within it. This also includes the people who visit your building, such as those completing maintenance work. Most old buildings, particularly those erected before 2000, are likely to have asbestos in the materials from which it is built. The aim of an asbestos survey is to determine where these materials are, and what condition they are in.
Asbestos is often found in insulating board, tiles, roofing felt, among others. In Didsbury, an asbestos survey will determine the location of any asbestos-containing materials in your building. It is interesting to be aware that asbestos is only dangerous when disturbed. If it is safely managed and contained, it doesn’t present a health hazard. However, it is when asbestos becomes friable as a result of age or damage, that it poses a huge risk. It is likely that you may need a management survey. This entails locating the asbestos-containing materials. This means materials that could be damaged or disturbed by normal activities, by foreseeable maintenance, or by installing new equipment. It involves minor intrusion and minor asbestos disturbance to make a Materials Assessment. Our surveyors are experienced and will conduct a thorough asbestos survey. We will also provide recommendations on the best course of action.
