For Asbestos surveys and removals from our centrally located offices in Edinburgh and London. contact one of our consultants for free advice.
Asbestos has been the number one industrial illness killer for decades and the good news is that more and more companies and individuals are becoming aware that it is a legal duty to make an assessment of asbestos-containing materials in non-domestic premises, (which usually involves an asbestos survey) however, a large number of Duty Holders are not following up the report with an Asbestos Management Plan. Having the asbestos survey conducted is only part of the legal duty. This must be followed up by implementing a management plan where asbestos-containing materials are present within a building.
Please contact us now to see how we can help!

Asbestos surveys & advice have over 30 years of experience in the field. All of our Asbestos surveyors are qualified to P402 certification standards a minimum.
The asbestos surveys we conduct are done so in accordance with H.S.E publications HSG 264 and the ACOP L127 ” The management of Asbestos in Non-Domestic Premises” and are compliant with BS EN ISO/IEC 17020. Our quality assurance procedures (ISO 9001:2008) ensures we are up to date with the very latest industry standards so you can be assured that you are receiving all the information and expertise to help you comply with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

Asbestos management plans can vary widely from building to building and site to site but should always contain such items as; Action plans, organisational chart of who is responsible for the management of the asbestos-containing materials, arranging of annual asbestos re-assessment surveys, priority risk assessments and material assessments, emergency procedures, asbestos register, details of planned or actual asbestos removal and always have the information on-site to provide to any contractors or maintenance workers. This list is by no means exhaustive but gives a general idea of the requirements over and above the actual asbestos survey.

A little Asbestos History-
Asbestos was regarded, for many years, as an excellent material for these and other practical reasons and was installed in numerous Edinburgh buildings and indeed throughout the entire United Kingdom.
Although the first reported cases of asbestos-related health problems can be found as far back as the 1930s, it was not until the 1980s that direct action was taken on its usage, Firstly by a voluntary ban followed by legislation and eventual total ban in 1999. For these reasons, it is essential that asbestos located in any building in London, Edinburgh or the UK is managed in a safe manner or removed as per the current regulations.

Domestic areas covered by Asbestos regulations-
There are still numerous buildings within large cities such as Edinburgh where asbestos is located.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 only specifies requirements for Non-Domestic premises constructed before 1999. However, all buildings, including domestic premises, have the potential to contain asbestos. Communal areas of Domestic and residential properties in London, Edinburgh and all of the UK are covered by the regulations. They, therefore, require an asbestos assessment to comply with current legislation. The same Asbestos removal regulations apply to these areas as well.
