If you’ve already had an asbestos survey carried out, you should have critical information on hand such as a Material Hazard Assessment, which provides a clear demonstration of how liable an asbestos containing material (ACM) is to discharging airborne fibres.
It is then up to the duty holder to calculate the direct danger that each asbestos containing material (ACM) poses based on the level of use in the area where it was found, and then to produce an Asbestos Management Plan.
As part of the proceeding management of asbestos containing materials (ACMs), constant surveillance post asbestos survey is required at regular intervals. Any ACM identified or suspected ACM will need to be inspected frequently to check that it has not worsened or sustained damaged. As a minimum, ACMs should be inspected every six to twelve months.
Asbestos testing must form part of every asbestos inspection survey, no matter what kind of premises is concerned.
All dubious materials should be tested by a fully licensed asbestos surveyor, and then carefully removed to be taken away for analysis using microscopy techniques at a UKAS accredited laboratory.
