Factors for Doing an Asbestos Survey
Prior to starting any remodeling, demolition, renovation, or any repair, it is important to do an asbestos survey. It is a must for every building materials interior or exterior. It is a statement organized and written from the in-depth inspection using the regulation’s body’s analysis and methods. To resolve if there is any asbestos in the structures or materials that are about to be renovated, repaired, renovated or demolished is the purpose of this asbestos survey. As work continues on the site, the copy of the asbestos should be kept there.
Establishing if there is any asbestos in the materials in the premises is the first step. The report will show where exactly the materials believed to contain asbestos. 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 Type 2 surveys are similar in the procedures and intentions save for the surveyor having to analyze and collect all materials suspected for the asbestos presence. Type 3 is mandatory prior to demolition or renovation works.
The asbestos report lays down clearly the actual positions and requirements for all involved like surveyors, estate managers, duty holders. The ways to contract an expert professional contractor is given in the asbestos report. Additionally, the new documents have clear guides on the asbestos survey expectations.
Even though the guides on housing and safety about the three types of surveys are not much emphasized however they did come up with a management asbestos survey. This management asbestos survey is legally binding for every property which is non-domestic and constructed before the year 2000. Also, there is a survey on pre-demolition and refurbishment which is also legally binding for any works that could cause disturbance to any building fabric that was constructed before the year 2000. The works in this management asbestos survey are like kitchen or bathroom refurbishments that are done in domestic properties.
