Asbestos Surveys in Lancashire
At Pillars Environmental, we carry out two kinds of asbestos surveys:
- Refurbishment and Demolition asbestos surveys.
- Asbestos Management Surveys.
The Refurbishment and Demolition Asbestos Survey (R&D Asbestos Survey) is required for properties built pre 2000 where refurbishment works are due to be taken place. The R&D survey is undertaken with visual and intrusive techniques. Therefore, we require access to all areas of the site which might contain asbestos.
An Asbestos Management survey is far less invasive, for example removing and replacing ceiling tiles, as the building is likely to remain occupied throughout the survey. Where access is available, the materials here will be tested and if access is proving difficult, it will be presumed that asbestos is present. If material is found to have asbestos all other similar materials will be presumed to be containing asbestos too.
Asbestos Management Plans in Lancashire
An asbestos management plan discloses how you intend to manage the status of any asbestos in your building. It sets out the process that will be undertaken to ensure that those who may enter the building will remain protected against asbestos. Our asbestos management plans create a history of any asbestos materials found and labels the course of action taken which could include monitor and review, undertake remedial works or remove.
Our asbestos management plans give you the tools to manage the risk of asbestos and allows you to fulfil your legal obligations in management asbestos.
