The Control Of Asbestos At Work Regulations 2002-2012 put a duty to manage asbestos on all those responsible for maintenance and repair of non-domestic premises. The duty requires the responsible person(s) to manage the risk from asbestos.
The survey is a Management Survey, which includes standard sampling, identification and assessment. The purpose of the survey is to locate, as far as reasonably practical, the presence and extent of any asbestos-containing materials in the building and assess their condition. Representative samples are collected and analysed for the presence of asbestos. All areas are accessed and inspected as far as reasonably practical. The location of all asbestos materials found during the survey and areas of suspected asbestos materials are identified and recorded. A basic asbestos management plan, highlighting the requirement for urgent action to reduce the risk of exposure to asbestos fibres, is produced.
