What Is An Asbestos Survey?

An Asbestos Survey allows you to effectively manage asbestos in your building, premises, or home by providing accurate information about the location, amount, and type of any asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). The person in charge of maintenance (in relation to non-domestic properties) must either arrange an asbestos survey if ACM’s are suspected within your premises or, you may instead choose to assume the worst case scenario that there is widespread ACM’s in the premises and you would then need to take all appropriate action for any work that takes place.

We always state that it is much easier to have an in-depth asbestos survey carried out to determine whether asbestos is present and the condition of this within the premises.

An in-depth asbestos survey can help provide enough information so that an asbestos register, risk assessment and management plan can be prepared and implemented.

The Asbestos Survey usually involves taking samples and analysing these to determine if the presence of ACM’s exist. We fully recommend that only fully competent and qualified asbestos surveyors handle asbestos surveys so that all legal requirements are met and adhered to.

An asbestos survey will identify:

  • The precise location of any asbestos-containing materials in the premises
  • The type, or types, of asbestos they contain
  • The Condition of these materials

After an asbestos survey has been completed the surveyor will then produce a report detailing the exact findings and recommendations.. This information can help you prepare an asbestos risk register.

Client Testimonials

Fantastic service! Quick, efficient and friendly. Paul went the extra mile to help. Would recommend without question

Kate Seaman, Leeds

I called Paul yesterday afternoon. He arrived on site at 9.00 am this morning, completed his investigation and emailed me the results of the lab test this afternoon. Couldn't have been more efficient and knowledgeable. Very good price too. Highly recommended.

Ivan Button, Bradford

We needed a fast turnaround on an asbestos report for a care home we were buying for Welcome Independent Living Ltd. The following day Paul attended, fast tracked the results and sent an electronic copy of the report. Great value for money and superb service with free advice from the start. We will certainly use PAC Asbestos Surveys again in the future when required.
