Introduction to Asbestos Surveys:

The first step in dealing with asbestos in any way is to identify its location, type, extent and condition. In order to do this some type of asbestos survey / surveying will be required. Oracle Solutions UK, offer a full range of asbestos surveys / surveying techniques and survey types, which include all premises, buildings and locations and covers all survey eventualities and requirements.

As a leading asbestos survey consultancy all our asbestos surveyors and consultants are trained to the highest standards and as a minimum hold BOHS P402 Asbestos Survey / Surveying Certification and have a minimum of five years survey experience. All surveys, analysis of results and reporting are carried out to the highest standards and are in full accordance with HSG264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide and HSG248 Asbestos: The analysts' guide for sampling, analysis and clearance procedures".

**Important Information**

Asbestos surveying guidance has now changed:

As of January 2010 Type 1, Type 2 & Type 3 asbestos surveys are no longer referred to.

The new Health & Safety Executive guidance note is:

HSG264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide, which replaces the previous asbestos survey guidance document 'MDHS100'.

So what's new?

Asbestos survey types are now described as;

 an Asbestos Management Survey or;

 an Asbestos Refurbishment / Demolition Survey, which are:

1) As Asbestos Management Survey: (Similar to the previous Type 2 Asbestos Survey)

A management survey is the standard survey. Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs (Asbestos Containing Materials) in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and to assess their condition.

Management surveys should cover routine and simple maintenance work. However it has to be recognised where ‘more extensive’ maintenance or repair work is involved, there may not be sufficient information in the management survey and a localised refurbishment survey will be required for all work which disturbs the fabric of the building in areas where the management survey has not been intrusive.

2) An Asbestos Refurbishment / Demolition Survey: (Similar to the previous Type 3 Asbestos Survey)

A refurbishment / demolition survey is needed before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out. This type of survey is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all ACMs (Asbestos Containing Materials) in the area where the refurbishment or demolition work will take place. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to reach. A refurbishment / demolition survey may also be required in other circumstances, e.g. when more intrusive maintenance and repair work will be carried out or for plant removal or dismantling.

In this type of survey, where the asbestos is identified so that it can be removed (rather than to ‘manage’ it), the survey does not normally assess the condition of the asbestos, other than to indicate areas of damage or where additional asbestos debris may be present. However as the asbestos removal may not take place for some time, the ACMs condition is usually assessed so that materials can be managed.

Sampling for the presence of asbestos during surveying:

Where sampling is carried out as part of an asbestos survey, samples from each type of suspect ACM (Asbestos Containing Material) are collected and analysed. If the material sampled is found to contain asbestos they are considered to be representative of other similar materials used in the same way in the building. Less homogeneous materials (e.g. different surfaces/coating, evidence of repair etc) required a greater number of samples to be collected. All samples collected are analysed within a UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited laboratory.

Other Changes Within HSG264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide:

Although the new survey guide does not depart radically from the framework laid down in MDHS100, it does represent an advance in relation to asbestos surveying. The new guidance now includes far more detail with regards to what clients and surveyors duty's. Please see our fact sheet for further details.

Asbestos Reporting / what the client gets:

The following is a list of information which is included within the asbestos survey report as laid down by HSG264 Asbestos: The survey Guide.

Guidance Fact Sheet
 
Each asbestos survey report contains:
  •  Introduction covering the scope of work
  • An executive summary of the survey
  • General site and survey information
  • Survey results
  •  Assessment of risk
  • Conclusions and actions
  • Asbestos survey bulk sample analysis results
  • Survey plans and drawings

Additionally all Oracle Solutions asbestos survey reports contain full colour photographs of sampling points and asbestos containing materials which are included with asbestos register sheets.

For more detailed information on asbestos reports / registers and what you will receive when the asbestos survey has been completed please see our Asbestos Survey Reports page.

Remember an asbestos survey on its own does not constitute compliance with 'The Duty to Manage Asbestos' under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006'. For further information on asbestos management and complying with the law see our Asbestos Management section.

Please contact us for more in depth information with regards to any of the above.
