Asbestos Removal and Surveys

Asbestos Removal and Surveys

H.E.S undertake Management and Major Refurbishment/Demolition Asbestos Surveys in accordance with HSE Guidance Note Asbestos: The survey guide (HSG 264). We also undertake Re-inspection Surveys of buildings which have previously undergone Management Asbestos Surveys.

Management Asbestos Surveys

This type of survey is non-intrusive and is undertaken during normal occupancy to identify and then manage all reasonably accessible asbestos containing materials. The structure of the management survey includes the following:
  • Executive summary of identified asbestos containing materials, recommended management actions
  • Introduction and initial observations
  • Areas of no access
  • Detailed assessment of each room
  • Asbestos fiber identification report
  • Asbestos material assessment
  • Table of negative samples
  • Photographs of positive sample locations
  • Annotated site plans showing all sample locations

Major Refurbishment / Pre Demolition Asbestos Surveys

This type of survey involves intrusive inspection to locate all asbestos containing materials so that they can be removed and is necessary when a building is to be upgraded, refurbished or demolished. They are generally undertaken in buildings which are vacant and/or unoccupied. The structure of the major refurbishment/ pre demolition asbestos survey includes the following:
  • Executive summary of identified asbestos containing materials, recommended removal actions
  • Introduction and initial observations
  • Areas of no access
  • Asbestos fiber identification report
  • Table of positive samples
  • Table of negative samples
  • Photographs of positive sample locations
  • Annotated site plans showing all sample locations

Re-inspection Surveys

The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012 specify that identified asbestos containing materials should be re-inspected routinely (e.g on an annual basis) but more frequently in high disturbance environments. This re-inspection of the condition of the known asbestos based materials will ensure the asbestos material assessment always contains current information. Also any damage caused by disturbance or any deterioration will be identified and therefore remedial work can be undertaken to reduce the risk to building users.
