Asbestos Hazard Warning Sign used in Surveys

Asbestos is a highly dangerous mineral: a class one carcinogen

Safeguard Asbestos Surveys were established in 1999

The Health and Safety Commission estimate 1.5 million properties in the UK require an asbestos survey in order to comply with current regulations

Any work with asbestos is covered by its own set of regulations

Three Types of Asbestos Surveys

Type 1 - Location & Assessment Survey

The purpose of the type 1 Asbestos Survey is to locate the presence and extent of any ACMs (Asbestos Containing Materials) in the premises, where reasonably practical, whilst deferring the need for sampling and analysis until a later time.

Our Asbestos Survey report will provide assessment on any material which is presumed to contain Asbestos.

Type 2 - Standard Sampling Survey for the Identification and Assessment of Potential Asbestos Material

The purpose and procedures in the type 2 Asbestos Survey are the same as a Type 1 Asbestos report, except that samples are taken of materials suspected of containing Asbestos.

The samples taken are then analysed by a UKAS accredited laboratory and the results used to compile a register of the ACMs within the premises. The condition of each ACM is assessed and recommendations made regarding their future management.

Type 3 - Full Access Sampling and Identification Survey (Pre-demolition/Major Refurbishment Survey)

This survey may involve destructive inspection to so as to gain access to all areas that are suspected of contacting ACMs and is designed to be used as a basis for tendering the removal of all ACMs from the premises prior to demolition or major refurbishment work.

Samples will be taken of suspect ACMs and analysed by a UKAS accredited laboratory. However, the survey does not assess the condition of the asbestos, other than to note areas of damage or where additional Asbestos debris may be expected to be present.
