Asbestos Testing – Reasons for survey

As described in other pages on this website, there are six principal reasons for having an asbestos survey :

  1. It’s the law and the HSE can (and regularly do), fine offenders considerable sums.
  1. For non-domestic buildings, not having it done can greatly affect your insurance coverage.
  1. Your bank, building society or pension fund may require it.
  1. Not having it done, can allow or spread asbestos contamination in your building (incurring costs, liabilities and possible health issues).
  1. Not having a refurbishment / demolition survey done before buildings works commence, can cause huge cost and time over-runs when asbestos gets discovered in mid-project.
  1. If your company is (or wishes to become), ISO compliant, then being up to date with asbestos survey issues, is commonly a pre-requisite to ‘Compliance’ being certified.
  1. When Dutyholders do not have things surveyed / surveyed properly
