Management Surveys as per HSG264 – UKAS Accredited. This is the ‘standard survey’ which usually includes sampling of any suspect materials, and the first step in your ‘Duty to Manage’ asbestos. This survey will inspect all reasonably accessible rooms/areas without causing any damage to the fabric of the building. The survey report will comprise a REGISTER of ACMs with risk assessment scores and recommendations; further supported by any sample analysis certificate, photographs and annotated plans.
Next step – you will also need an Asbestos Management Plan – we do those too!
Priority Risk Assessments
Perhaps you don’t need a survey and just want a sample or two taken. At our UKAS Accredited laboratories, we can analyse your samples for asbestos ﬁbre identiﬁcation. We can accept samples delivered to us or we can send one of our Surveyors to take the samples for you.
Air Sampling / Fibre - Counting
Air Sampling / Fibre – Counting including background, leak, reassurance, personal and clearance tests – UKAS Accredited. Whether its 1 air test you need or its a more complex removal job you need an Analyst on site for – we’ve got you covered.
4-Stage Clearance / Certiﬁcate of Re-occupation
After asbestos removal or remediation works, we can provide the independent 4-Stage Clearance / Certiﬁcate of Re-occupation – UKAS Accredited
Project Management of Removal Works
Project Management of Removal Works: usually based on our survey report & recommendations however we can also manage works as recommended by others or as requested by the client.
These works are usually licensed however can also be non-licensed or notifiable non-licensed (NNLW).
Phase1 – produce a removal speciﬁcation, invite and escort Licensed Removal Contractors for site visits, review the tender submissions and make recommendations to award work.
Phase2 – our Analyst is on site for the works and will carry out pre-work air samples and enclosure checks, witness the smoke-test then issue a Permit to Work. Then carry out all necessary air testing including Backgrounds, Leaks, Personals, Clearance and Reassurance tests. Our Analyst is there to support the Supervisor and monitor the control measures whilst ensuring the works are carried out as per the agreed Method Statement. Our Analyst is not legally required to be on site for the full duration of the works (the Removal Contractors’ Supervisor is there for that) but we are there to help monitor the works and conduct an adequate air sampling strategy; this is particularly important in an occupied building, or for a large, complex or unique job or on a sensitive site. Our Analyst is on site to help identify and rectify any problems during the work and ultimately, in the final stages, authorise the area as adequately clean and fit for re-occupation. Some clients prefer a full-time attendance from us whereas other jobs/clients may dictate a part-time attendance; we will advise the most effective option.
Phase3 – compile a Works Completion Report which includes the survey report, specification, RAMS, Analysts paperwork and waste note. If you are one of our managed account Clients, we would update your Survey Report / Register and upload all to the Omega Vault bringing everything around full circle to retaining compliance.
Management Plan / Policy – your operating manual on exactly how you will manage asbestos in your properties. Your why, how, what, where and when. We can design/produce a new document OR do an annual review of an existing one. Did you know you legally have to review your policy document every year? Let us assess how well your procedures are protecting you. Or we can put some systems in place if you have none!
This document is what you need to fully comply with Regulation 4 ‘The Duty to Manage’. You need more than just a survey.
