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