What’s Involved in An Asbestos Survey?

A lot of companies are wondering why they need an Asbestos survey and how this will benefit them. Let’s start with the fact that from November 2006, new Control of Asbestos Regulations came into force which placed a specific legal responsibility for building owners and managers to ensure that workers are not exposed to dangerous asbestos fibres.

The purpose of the asbestos regulations is to decrease the number of deaths from contact with asbestos which is still growing. There is no safe level of exposure to asbestos. Sometimes even minor exposure can cause the onset of diseases and cancers such as Asbestosis and Mesothelioma. A lot of building owners have questions regarding asbestos survey such as: what happens during the survey and what type of survey they need? IES Group will answer all of your questions and help you choose the best option for you.

What happens during a survey?


The first stage is to inspect all areas of the building to locate all possible asbestos containing materials.
Our professional team will go from room to room looking for suspicious materials. We will need access as many areas as possible so you can check the whole building. Moreover, we will take photos of materials we suspect may contain asbestos and we will take a sample for later analysis The third stage is when the results are returned, a survey report is issued which details all asbestos materials found, along with photographs and recommendations on how to manage the asbestos safely.
