Methods of Doing an Asbestos Survey
Prior to starting any remodeling, demolition, renovation, or any repair, it is important to do an asbestos survey. It is mandatory for buildings materials interior and exterior. It is a statement organized and written from the in-depth inspection using the regulation’s body’s analysis and methods. The aim of this survey is to establish if the materials or structures that are to be removed, repaired, renovated or demolished have any materials containing asbestos. Make sure there is a copy of the report on site as repairs continue.
Establishing if there is any asbestos in the materials in the premises is the first step. From the report you will see the location where the material containing asbestos is. In the report there should provide information where the bulk samples asbestos was taken as well as a detailed report of the location.
You may need different types in many areas of the building depending on the usage, activity and planned works. In the detailed asbestos survey, there are three types of survey in the asbestos main survey, and they are Type 1 the assessment and location survey, type 2, survey of sampling or regular sampling and type 3 the survey of full access identification and sampling.
Type 1 survey should detect the amount and presence of the inferred materials that contain asbestos in the building. Type 2 survey expects the required information is submitted to the state authorities. Type 1 and 2 are similar to some extent in intent and processes apart from where the surveyor as to collect and analyze the asbestos presence in the material that they will collect and analyze. Type 3 is obligatory before demolishing or renovating works begin.
The asbestos report lays down clearly the actual positions and requirements for all involved like surveyors, estate managers, duty holders. The asbestos repots also gives methods to hire an expert professional contactor. Additionally, the new documents have clear guides on the asbestos survey expectations.
But the housing and safety guides do not pay much attention to the three types of surveys rather they introduced a management asbestos survey. It is a lawful necessity for all properties that are non-domestic and constructed before the year 2000. A pre-demolition and refurbishment survey is also a lawful obligation before any works that could antagonize the building’s fabric constructed before 2000. The works in this management asbestos survey are like kitchen or bathroom refurbishments that are done in domestic properties.
