Asbestos Reinspection Surveys from Environmental Inspection
If you are responsible for any non-domestic property built before 1999, then you should already have an asbestos management plan that contains an up-to-date asbestos register and previous surveys. See our asbestos management services for more about that.
Your duty to manage any known or potential asbestos includes the need for regular reinspections.
Typically, a reinspection will be annual, but more frequent surveys may be required depending on the environment. The frequency of reinspection should be set out in your asbestos management plan.
What is an Asbestos Reinspection Survey?
Asbestos reinspection surveys play a crucial role in maintaining the safety and compliance of buildings and infrastructure. These surveys are designed to identify and assess the presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within structures. Asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral once commonly used for its fire-resistant and insulating properties, poses significant health risks when its fibres become airborne and are inhaled. An asbestos reinspection survey aims to mitigate these risks by ensuring the continued management, containment, and, if necessary, removal of ACMs.
The Asbestos Reinspection Process:
Our asbestos reinspection process is a systematic and thorough approach designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of asbestos risks within your property. This process involves:
- Pre-Survey Preparation: We gather relevant information about your property, including its history and any past asbestos-related work.
- On-Site Inspection: Our certified inspectors meticulously examine the premises, utilising advanced equipment to identify potential ACMs.
- Data Collection: Samples are collected, if necessary, for laboratory analysis, ensuring accurate identification and assessment of ACMs.
- Analysis and Assessment: The collected data is rigorously analysed to determine the presence, condition, and risk level of identified ACMs.
- Categorisation and Reporting: ACMs are categorised based on their condition and potential for disturbance. A detailed report is generated, providing clear insights into risks and recommended actions.
- Consultation: We review the findings with you, offering expert guidance on the appropriate next steps, whether it’s management, encapsulation, or removal.
Our streamlined process ensures a comprehensive evaluation, empowers you with actionable insights, and assists in making informed decisions for a safer environment.
