Asbestos Survey

Wednesday, February 6th, 2019
asbestos refurbishment/demolition survey

Amiante STR are specialist asbestos contractors based in Hampshire and London. We have recently undertaken a major commercial asbestos survey for a defence client, one of several on a strategic defence site in Portsmouth to come during 2019.  The complicated survey involved both working at height considerations and confined spaces access considerations, and was led by our senior surveyor with assistance from one of our new asbestos surveyors who joined the team right at the end of 2018.  It is worth bearing in mind that best practice is to have a re-survey undertaken on annual basis, meaning that any ACMs can be checked on a regular basis in case there has been degradation of the ACMs of any other environmental change that could have the potential to cause fibre release.Pipe LaggingDefence sites contain some unique hazards and a lot goes into the planning of a good survey.  Amiante’s links with the southern Hampshire area was crucial in establishing strong contractual relationships with the appointed laboratory.  On ths occasion we were undertaking a refurbishment/demolition survey, which is intrusive and a legal obligation when this type of contractual work is being undertaken.  The team planned the survey so that it was completed in time for the main contractor to be able to use the survey data in their own planning for the project.  For further information on Amiante’s range of commercial and home asbestos survey services head on over to our dedicated surveying page where you can discover what your obligations are as a duty holder in terms of asbestos, what types of survey are required to suit your circumstances, and link to a free guide from the Health & Safety Executive about asbestos surveys – Click here
