Building and Infrastructure Environment Consultant: Asbestos, Legionella and lead paint
We safeguard people in their workplaces and living spaces, by protecting against threats from asbestos, legionella and lead in paint.
Environmental Inspection can help you to meet your legal compliance obligations to maintain a safe environment by managing and monitoring the relevant risks.
Breathe easily in a safe and regulated environment.
Protect your staff, clients, and visitors from risks within your built environment. Environmental Inspection will guide you in your legal duty to ensure compliance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR 2012), Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) regulations, the Control of Lead at Work Regulations 2002 (CLAW), and the Health and Safety at Work Act, and guidance in relation to legionella and paint which may contain lead.
We survey buildings to identify all asbestos present, check on its condition, and set out plans for its management or removal.
Lead Paint Sampling
Any building built before 1963 has the potential to have paint containing lead. In addition, lead paint was allowed in historic buildings beyond this date.
We provide Legionella Risk Assessments for hot and cold-water systems. We are experienced at delivering this for commercial and domestic premises.
