Asbestos Services

Quick, easy, and keeping you safe

Under the guidance set out by the Health and Safety Executive (HSG 264), there are two types of asbestos survey. These are: asbestos management surveys and asbestos refurbishment surveys.

Management Surveys

A standard inspection, done to locate the presence and extent of asbestos containing materials (ACMs). Learn more about this service here.

Refurbishment Surveys

An inspection that is required before any refurbishment/demolition to check for ACMs. Learn more about this service here

At Pro Safety Management, we provide both Management and Refurbishment surveys and strive to give you complete confidence in your ability to meet all obligations under the UK’s asbestos laws.

Asbestos Management Surveys

A standard inspection, done to locate, as far as is reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in a building.

The Asbestos Management Survey aims to reveal dangerous asbestos that might be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including maintenance and installations that may occur in the future.

These surveys include:

  • Discrete intrusive work
  • Suspect ACM sampling
  • Presumed suspect ACM
  • Minor disturbance

If asbestos is found and isn’t damaged, the risks it poses are minimal. The owner of the premises will be required to ensure there is no degeneration of the material. If the asbestos material is worn or broken, then harmful fibres can be released, and further action needs to be taken.

The HSG264 Asbestos Management Survey has replaced the MDHS100 Type 1 and Type 2 Surveys. Make sure you’re up to date.

At Pro Safety Management, we believe that a safe place is a happy place. Asbestos was banned in 1999 but can still be found in houses that were built up until 2000, so keep yourself safe and check for asbestos.

Asbestos Refurbishment Surveys

An inspection that is required before any refurbishment/demolition can take place to identify, as far as is reasonably practicable, any asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in a building.

The Asbestos Refurbishment Survey aims to remove, as far as is reasonably practicable, any dangerous ACMs before refurbishment or final demolition.

This also applies to smaller refurbishments, including structural or layout changes to buildings.

These surveys include:

  • Destructive inspection, if necessary.
  • Suspect ACM sampling
  • Presumed suspect ACM
  • Indicating areas of asbestos damage

If asbestos is found and isn’t damaged, the risks it poses are minimal. The owner of the premises will be required to ensure there is no degeneration of the material. If the asbestos material is worn or broken, then harmful fibres can be released, and further action needs to be taken.
