Asbestos Surveys and Re-inspections
Our subsidiary, Strategic Risk Management (Asbestos) Limited, can help dutyholders determine whether there is any asbestos present in their building with a variety of Asbestos Surveys.
Our surveyors are able to undertake the following types of asbestos survey in accordance with the requirements of ISO17020 and HSG 264.
Used to locate any Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation work.
Refurbishment and Demolition Survey
This type of survey is needed prior to carrying out any refurbishment or demolition work. Our clients use this survey to locate ACMs where refurbishment is taking place or in the whole building in the case of demolition.
Following your Asbestos Survey we can help you manage your on-going Asbestos Management Plan by conducting Asbestos Re-inspection Surveys to monitor and report on the condition of any ACMs previously identified.
Asbestos Management Plans
Following your Asbestos Survey we can assist you in the development of a detailed Asbestos Management Plan to ensure that you are managing your asbestos effectively and are compliant with The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
Our consultants can help you prepare a written plan which sets out in detail how you are going to manage the risk of any asbestos containing materials (ACMs). By bringing together all asbestos-related information from your surveys and re-inspections, our Asbestos Management Plans aim to implement procedures to control any activities which may disturb asbestos, as well as providing an audit trail to prove due diligence.
Our Asbestos Management Plans include:
- An Asbestos Register giving details of the location and condition of any ACMs

- Management roles and responsibilities
- Training arrangements
- Procedures for passing on information to anyone who may come into contact with or disturb asbestos.
