Asbestos Survey & Assessment Reports
TAILORED TO YOUR REQUIREMENTS
Our Field Technicians are experienced, skilled specialists in asbestos sampling. We offer a range of services from domestic sampling to full commercial assessments and surveys. Our clear, concise reports contain sample locations, maps and photographs, corresponding to the analysis.
EIAG offer a range of surveying and assessment services including:
Management surveys (Previously known as Type 1 and 2 surveys)
A management survey is a standard survey. Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACM within the assessed area which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition. This type of survey is essentially intrusive without being destructive and as such is intended for management of asbestos during normal building use and not for managing refurbishment or demolition projects. To achieve these objectives the survey involves taking samples of possible materials containing asbestos to identify possible ACM’s as per the client’s request. An asbestos register is included within this type of survey.
Demolition/ Refurbishment surveys (Previously known as Type 3 surveys)
Conducted prior to the commencement of demolition works or major refurbishment works and involves partially demolishing the structure to ensure ALL suspect materials are detected (e.g. wall cavities, blind service ducts, etc). This type of survey is used to locate and describe as far as practicable all ACMs in the building and may involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to access. An asbestos register is included within this type of survey.
Are conducted when a building has been exposed to asbestos during refurbishment, demolition works or natural disasters. This type of survey is intrusive and involves partially demolishing the structure to ensure ALL suspect materials are detected, along with consulting any prior asbestos surveys of the building and conducting both bulk and filter sampling to establish the level of contamination within an area.
Are undertaken to determine the current condition of the asbestos containing materials and provide recommendations for future maintenance. The assessment concentrates on the likelihood of fibre release from ACMs. A material risk score is given for each ACM and considers four main parameters to determine the risk of fibre release:
- Product type
- Condition (Extent of damage or deterioration)
- Surface treatment
- Asbestos type
A risk assessment also involves assessing the airborne fibre contamination in surrounding areas of an asbestos product, as that is where the real health risk lies.
