If you’ve already had an asbestos survey conducted, you should have critical information available such as a Material Hazard Assessment, which provides a clear demonstration of how probable an asbestos containing material (ACM) is to discharging airborne fibres.
It is then up to the duty holder to calculate the direct risk that each asbestos containing material (ACM) poses based on the level of use in the area where it was discovered, and then to produce an Asbestos Management Plan.
As part of the ongoing management of asbestos containing materials (ACMs), continual surveillance post asbestos survey is required at regular intervals. Any ACM discovered or suspected ACM will need to be inspected periodically to ensure that it has not worsened or sustained breakages. As a minimum, ACMs should be checked every six to twelve months.
Asbestos analysis must form part of every asbestos inspection survey, no matter what kind of property is concerned.
All dubious materials should be sampled by a fully qualified asbestos surveyor, and then carefully extracted to be taken away for review using microscopy techniques at a UKAS accredited laboratory.
Under normal circumstances, asbestos test results are usually ready for review within 48 hours with a certificate of analysis outlining the types of asbestos present within the sample material tested.
