Asbestos Management Survey 

If there's asbestos on your premises, you'll need help to find it and make it safe.

That's where Amiante STR comes in. We offer a range of asbestos management surveys which provide information on the asbestos identified, determine its condition and outline how it should be managed.

Why have a survey?

If you manage a non-domestic property or you're a business owner, correct asbestos management is a legal requirement.

A professional asbestos survey is the only way to get a clear picture on the presence of asbestos in your premises.

This is the first step towards the completion of your asbestos site register and legal compliance with CAR 2012 – Regulation 4

Asbestos management surveys are essential because:

  • they help manage asbestos in your premises;
  • provide accurate information on the location, amount and condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs);
  • assess the level of damage or deterioration in the ACMs and whether remedial action is required;
  • information can be used for an asbestos register* and an asbestos plan of the building(s)

*Note: the information in the asbestos register should be used in a risk assessment (e.g. consider who could disturb asbestos on your premises), and to establish the management plan to prevent such a disturbance.

Simplifying the surveys

The names of asbestos surveys may have changed in recent years but they serve the same purpose.

Prior to 2010 surveys were classified as Type 1 (Presumptive), Type 2 (Sampling) Type 3 (Demolition).  Since 2010, to make the legislation clearer surveys have been reclassified as Management Surveys (which amalgamated Type 1 and 2) and Demolition /Refurbishment (Type 3) which also brought in an added requirement for a survey to be carried out prior to major refurbishment works.
