Asbestos Management Surveys:

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, created an explicit duty to assess and manage the risks from Asbestos materials in premises. All property owners and occupiers are therefore obliged by law to: • Take reasonable steps to determine the location/nature of asbestos-containing materials present in their property • Keep and maintain an up to date register of the location, condition, maintenance and removal of all asbestos materials • Manage all aspects of asbestos-containing materials which are to remain in place • Inform anyone who is likely to disturb or contact such materials about its location and condition. The first act of a responsible property owner or occupier should therefore be to commission the preparation of a detailed asbestos survey, which records the location, extent, type, accessibility and surface treatment of all confirmed or suspected asbestos materials. This type of survey requires specialist, experienced and competent staff with the knowledge to conduct the appropriate survey. Here MDS Environmental Services is able to use its vast experience and analytical knowledge via its directly employed staff, all trained to UKAS requirements.

Asbestos Pre Demolition & Refurbishment Survey:

The control of asbestos regulations dictate that prior to demolition or refurbishment works, an invasive survey of a building must be carried out to determine the exact nature and extent of any asbestos-containing materials. Therefore, all persons responsible for the works will need to ensure the following:

  • Take reasonable steps to determine the location and nature of any asbestos-containing materials present
  • Keep and maintain an up to date register of the location, condition, maintenance and removal of all asbestos-containing materials on site
  • Manage all aspects of asbestos-containing materials which are to remain in place
  • Inform anyone – who is likely to disturb or come into contact with such material – about its location and condition.

In addition, we offer advanced endoscope surveys of structures where it is important to minimise damage to the fabric of the building i.e. listed buildings etc. By using the latest fibre optic endoscope, we can reduce disruption and damage on site but still deliver accurate visibility to the client. The first act of a responsible property owner or occupier should therefore be to commission the preparation of a detailed asbestos survey that records the location, extent, type, accessibility and surface treatment of all confirmed or suspected asbestos materials.

This type of survey requires specialist, experienced and competent staff with the knowledge to conduct the appropriate survey.

Here MDS Environmental Services is able to use its vast experience and analytical knowledge via its directly employed staff, all trained to UKAS requirements.

Asbestos Awareness Training It would seem that the majority of people believe that asbestos is a material used to sheet roofs. Few are aware of the diverse number of uses that were once common for asbestos. This is not a problem for most people but for those who have to deal with the risks of asbestos containing materials it is essential that they have a good awareness.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 places an obligation on all employers to ensure that all any of their employees that come into contact with asbestos within the workplace must have had asbestos awareness training. This can be anyone from the office manager down to the cleaner.

Our Asbestos Awareness Training takes the form of a 3 hour workshop and Q&A that can be held at your premises or our training facility and covers the following mandatory topics;

  • Properties of asbestos • Products that contain asbestos • Prevention of asbestos exposure • Safe work practices • Respiratory Protective Equipment • Emergency procedures • Decontamination procedures • Waste handling • Medical examination • Hygiene requirements • Control limits and air monitoring.

 We recommend group sizes of no more than 10 people but we are happy to be flexible. Our trainers are actively working in the asbestos industry and have experience of training procedures. Asbestos awareness training can be booked by contacting our head office.
