An asbestos survey in Great Sankey is a necessary procedure if you have an old building. Asbestos is present in many old buildings throughout the UK. Despite the ban on its use in construction materials, it can be found in many parts of a building. Insulation, tiling, roofing, guttering and flooring are but some of the places where asbestos is likely to be found. This is because it was extensively used in the past as an addition to building materials. Adding asbestos to building materials made them strong, chemical, heat and fire resistant and long-lasting. However, it was found that exposure to asbestos fibres caused incurable disease. As such, all buildings erected before 2000 need an asbestos survey.
The health and safety of the occupants of your building is of great importance. Thus, in Great Sankey, an asbestos survey will provide the necessary information regarding the location and extent of any asbestos-containing materials. This information is also useful in preparing a proper asbestos management plan. An asbestos survey is a legal requirement. In addition, a management plan is also a legal requirement. The HSE regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations stipulates the duty to manage. This means that the owner of a building must ensure that any and all asbestos within the building is properly managed. Awareness of its location as well as its condition form part of this requirement. The best way to ensure that your building is compliant is to have an asbestos survey.
An asbestos survey in Great Sankey must be completed by a professional. A professional surveyor has the experience and the training to ensure safety and thoroughness.
