An asbestos survey in Bolton is required if you have a building that was constructed before 2000. Most buildings that were constructed before this date contain asbestos in many forms. As a building owner or business manager you need, by law, to have a survey showing exactly where the asbestos is in your building and what condition it is in. Our domestic surveys are usually undertaken where a property owner wants to do renovations to the home. The survey is to protect the workers by identifying any asbestos in your home. It is also a good idea to check the air quality as your family are exposed to it on a daily basis.
Fibres from asbestos can get into the air and be breathed in to the lungs. In Bolton, asbestos survey and air testing can prevent this. Once the fibres have entered the body they can cause incurable lung disease. In commercial buildings we often conduct management surveys. This is done to locate as far as reasonably practicable the presence and extent of any asbestos containing materials in the building. These materials can be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy. The survey will often involve minor intrusive work. The report we provide will give recommendations on how to deal with the asbestos found on the premises. Our report may contain recommendations on encapsulating the asbestos or even removal.
Plans must be made for asbestos management and our asbestos survey in Bolton is a good start. We ensure that your premises are clear of any airborne fibres that may make your staff or the public ill. Contact Fibre Safe today to arrange an asbestos survey for your property. An asbestos survey is not sufficient on its own to meet the requirements of today’s legislation for the Duty Holder. A management plan is also necessary to help our clients implement this in order to comply with the current legislation. This is a legal requirement for all non domestic buildings constructed before the year 2000. Heavy fines may be levied by the HSE.
