Overview Of Asbestos Sampling Surveys
You should carry out asbestos sampling surveys before commissioning a full asbestos survey. You can request an asbestos sampling survey for any building of any size or purpose, if regular building users or contractors want to find out the asbestos levels of a potential Asbestos Containing Material (ACM). Although undisturbed asbestos poses little risk, airborne asbestos is a serious health hazard. Therefore, it’s important to check the asbestos levels of any potential ACM.
The official advice from the UK Government’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is to carry out an asbestos survey if your building was built before 2000. If you think there is an ACM in your building, you should conduct an asbestos sampling survey as soon as possible. Therefore, you’ll be able to find out whether or not you need a full asbestos survey.
