Asbestos Surveys - SWT Asbestos Control & Management

Asbestos Survey Legislation

Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations (2002)

In May 2004 the final stage of the above Asbestos Survey Legislation became law

A new duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises was included,
this requires Duty Holders to:

1. Assess whether premises contain asbestos
2. Assess the risks from asbestos
3. Take action to manage the risks from asbestos

An asbestos survey is the simplest way to comply with item 1 above and provides the information to complete items 2 & 3.

As part of our service (and included in the quoted price) we produce detailed recommendations and Management Plans to conform to the relevant legislation.
(The 2002 Regulations have now been superseded by The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006)

These Regulations require that the hazards associated with Asbestos are identified and managed for all non-domestic properties.
