Bradley Environmental can re-inspect any previously surveyed property and update the information, whether held electronically or as a hard copy. We will discuss your requirements and identify the frequency of visits and checks. Where necessary, we can handle discussions with the HSE on your behalf.

What can we do to help?

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 requires that the condition of asbestos-based products needs to be inspected regularly and records updated accordingly. The frequency of the asbestos inspection regime must not exceed 12 months.

Asbestos re-inspection surveys are designed to allow a competent person to monitor and record the condition of any previously identified asbestos products within a building.

Over time, asbestos-based products can degenerate, weather or be accidentally damaged thereby causing the risks associated with the material to change substantially. Additionally, the approved code of practice requires the asbestos management plan to be reviewed every six months. We can advise on or supply efficient methods for complying with this requirement.

The new and updated asbestos survey report itself will include new photographs of those materials together with a new recommendation on how to safely manage those materials.

We have the experience where it counts

Bradley Environmental can re-inspect any previously surveyed property and update the information, whether held electronically or as a hard copy. We will discuss your requirements and identify the frequency of visits and checks. Where necessary, we can handle discussions with the HSE on your behalf. This service can be offered over any period of time including a one, three, five or ten year period. The longer term options provide cost certainty and compliant information that protect your investment from the initial survey.

Our asbestos re-inspection service to you

Bradley Environmental will:

  • Assess your current asbestos records and their format
  • Provide a cost and programme for re-inspecting
  • Contact you before your re-inspection is due
  • Re-inspect your sites and update your asbestos records
  • Advise where there have been any changes to asbestos containing materials and provide recommendations to maintain
  • Review your asbestos policy and management plan

Asbestos law - whats the worst that could happen?

If you own or are responsible for a commercial building and you fail to manage the asbestos correctly you could expose individuals to asbestos fibres resulting in a prosecution and imprisonment.

A pre-demolition asbestos survey (formally a type 3 asbestos survey) is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in the building and will involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas.

What can we do to help?

A pre-demolition asbestos survey is primarily designed to identify asbestos containing materials so that they can be removed in preparation for refurbishment works.

We have the experience where it counts

Our asbestos surveyors can advise on the type of asbestos survey needed. Our Asbestos Project Management services can ensure your demolition or refurbishment project is completed on-time and within budget.

Pre-demolition asbestos survey

Pre-demolition surveys are intrusive and can be targeted to areas which may be affected by proposed refurbishment works. A pre-demolition asbestos survey will be required by your CDM Co-ordinator under the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2012. This type of survey is more intrusive than a management survey and should be undertaken alongside a project specific plan of work to ensure that the survey covers all areas planned for refurbishment.

Note - this type of survey is fully intrusive and should not be undertaken in a property that is occupied or due to be reoccupied after the survey has been completed. Electrical, mechanical and gas services should be isolated to enable the asbestos surveyors to access all areas.

Go to: Pre-Demolition Asbestos Survey

An Asbestos Management Survey is the standard survey required on any building built or refurbished before 2000. Its purpose is to locate as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect Asbestos Containing Materials in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to access their condition.

What can we do to help?

Asbestos Management Surveys will often involve minor intrusive work and some disturbance.  The extent of intrusion will vary between premises and depend on what is reasonably practicable for individual properties. Following completion of your management survey, you will be provided with a report detailing the location and properties of any asbestos found within the building.

Our Asbestos Management Surveys will include a risk assessment of the condition of the various Asbestos Containing Materials found and their ability to release fibres into the air if they are disturbed in some way. This will give you a good initial guide to the priority for managing Asbestos Containing Materials as it will identify the materials that will most readily release airborne fibres if they are disturbed.

Asbestos Management Surveys will generally cover routine and simple maintenance work. However where more extensive maintenance or repair work is involved a Pre-Refurbishment Asbestos Survey will be required.

We have the experience where it counts

We are accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to ISO 17020 for asbestos surveys. Our four in-house asbestos testing laboratories are accredited by UKAS to ISO 17025 for the analysis of bulk samples.

  • Preventing exposure to asbestos dust will protect against related illness and fatal diseases

Undertaking an asbestos survey is a key stage in managing your asbestos.

The main purpose of the asbestos survey is to identify the location, type, condition and extent of any ACMs present. The survey should be in accordance with HSE guidance note HSG264:

  • Asbestos Management Survey – Previously known as a Type 2. Its purpose is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building.
  • Pre-Refurbishment Asbestos Survey – This has replaced the old Type 3 survey. Prior to refurbishment work being carried out, a refurishment and demolition survey must be completed.
  • Pre-Demolition Asbestos Survey - This has replaced the old Type 3 survey. Prior to demolition work being carried out, a refurishment and demolition survey must be completed.
  • Asbestos Re-inspection Services - Once ACMs have been identified, it is the dutyholder's responsibility to inspect these items (at least annually) and create a Management Plan.
The type of asbestos survey needed will be dependent on you and your property’s specific requirements. This will be established during the survey planning phase in conjunction with one of our surveyors. Our technical department are more than happy to answer any questions regarding surveys that you may have. 

All of our asbestos surveyors hold the P402 certificate or the RSPH Level 3. Each have a minimum of 2 years surveying experience and have been strictly audited in line with in-house quality systems. Many of our asbestos surveyors also hold the more advanced S301 asbestos consultant award.
