Types of Asbestos Surveys
Asbestos Refurbishment/Demolition Survey
Before any refurbishment or demolition work is carried out this type of survey is required. It is an intrusive survey so due to it's destructive nature, surveying is usually carried out in unoccupied areas of the building.
If asbestos containing materials have previously been identified within the building, annual Re-inspection Surveys should be carried out to checked for deterioration. The management survey and material risk assessment can then be updated in order to include the current condition of asbestos materials present.

What is an asbestos survey?
An asbestos survey is an inspection that identifies the presence, location, and condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within a building. This survey is conducted by a qualified asbestos surveyor and involves both a visual inspection and sampling of suspected materials. The survey results are compiled into a detailed report that outlines the location, type, and condition of any identified ACMs.
Why is an asbestos survey necessary?
An asbestos survey is necessary to ensure the safety of building occupants and workers. Exposure to asbestos fibers can cause serious respiratory diseases, including lung cancer and mesothelioma. Identifying the presence of ACMs and their condition helps building owners and managers to make informed decisions about how to manage or remove them safely, and it is also a legal requirement for all non-domestic buildings in the UK to have an asbestos survey carried out.
How often do I need to have an asbestos survey carried out?
The frequency of asbestos surveys depends on the type and condition of the building and any previous asbestos-related work that has been carried out. As a general rule, an asbestos survey should be carried out whenever there is a change in the use or occupancy of a building, or if there is a suspected presence of asbestos-containing materials. In addition, regular re-inspections are recommended to ensure that any ACMs that were previously identified are still in good condition and have not deteriorated.
Who can carry out an asbestos survey?
An asbestos survey should only be carried out by a competent and qualified asbestos surveyor. This is someone who has the necessary training, qualifications, and experience to identify and assess the condition of asbestos-containing materials safely. The surveyor should hold a relevant qualification such as BOHS P402 or equivalent, and they should be accredited by a recognized certification body such as UKAS.
What happens if asbestos is found during a survey?
If asbestos is identified during a survey, the building owner or manager has a legal duty to manage the risk of exposure to asbestos fibers. The next steps will depend on the type and condition of the asbestos-containing materials, as well as the planned use of the building. In some cases, the ACMs may need to be removed by a licensed asbestos removal contractor. In other cases, it may be possible to manage the asbestos in situ, using appropriate measures to prevent the release of fibers into the air.
