What is an Asbestos Management Survey?
An Asbestos Management Survey is a crucial process designed to identify the presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within buildings and structures. The primary purpose of an Asbestos Management Survey is to create a comprehensive record of any ACMs present in a building, assess their condition, and develop a management plan to ensure the safety of occupants and workers. This survey is particularly important for buildings constructed before the year 2000, as they are more likely to contain materials that might include asbestos.
Our Asbestos Management Survey Process
During an Asbestos Management Survey, our skilled and experienced professionals thoroughly inspect your property. This involves visual assessments, where we examine accessible materials that could potentially contain asbestos. Additionally, we may collect samples for laboratory analysis to confirm the presence of asbestos fibres in suspect materials.
Once the survey is complete, our experts will classify the identified ACMs based on their condition and potential for releasing fibres into the air. This classification enables us to determine the appropriate course of action to manage the asbestos risk effectively.
Asbestos Management Survey Report
The findings of the Asbestos Management Survey are then compiled into a detailed report. This report includes a register of identified ACMs, their locations, condition assessments, and risk evaluations. It serves as a valuable reference for building owners, property managers, and maintenance teams to understand the asbestos risks within the premises and implement necessary precautions.

How to Manage Asbestos
Effectively managing asbestos involves a combination of short-term and long-term measures that ensure the safety of all occupants and workers. Here’s a guide to navigate the process:
Formulate an Asbestos Management Plan:
Develop a detailed plan outlining how to identify, assess, and manage asbestos within your premises. This plan acts as a roadmap for asbestos-related activities.
Regular Monitoring and Reinspections:
Stay vigilant by regularly monitoring the condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). Periodic reinspections are essential to ensure that any changes in the condition of ACMs are promptly addressed.
As circumstances evolve, keep your asbestos management plan up to date. Adjustments might be necessary due to changes in building usage, gaining access to previously inaccessible areas, or as a response to maintenance activities.
Adapt to New Circumstances:
Adjust your plan to accommodate any shifts in circumstances. These could arise from renovations, changes in occupancy, or the deterioration of ACMs. Flexibility ensures continued effectiveness.

Asbestos Management FAQs
The short answer is ‘no’. But it does have to be kept safe. That means you must prevent damage or exposure, monitor its condition, and take action if necessary.
Failing to manage asbestos can lead to long-term health risks for occupants and workers, legal liabilities, fines for non-compliance, and a negative impact on property values.
An asbestos register is a vital record that outlines the presence and condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within a building. Regulations, like those set by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), mandate asbestos registers for certain buildings to ensure safety for occupants and workers.
