Many companies are still not up to date with
their legal requirements for asbestos management, as detailed in the
latest Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 - It became law to have an asbestos survey
carried out on any commercial property built before 1999 in the 2006 revision of
the regulations, (asbestos materials were
still being used up to that date!). The 2012 revised regulations can be complex
for some but the solution isn't!

Many of the asbestos
survey inquiries I
get come from solicitors, estate agents, letting agents, buyers,
sellers etc, because when a commercial property changes hands so
does the 'duty of care' for the building, it needs to be shown
that all hazards and potential hazards have been identified. These
buildings are often subject to major refurbishment where asbestos
material that has been left alone for years can suddenly becomes
disturbed causing all sorts of problems and legal liabilities.
Commercial properties includes shops and retail/wholesale
premises, offices, hospitals, schools and colleges, small factories, care homes,
farms, communal areas of flats etc. We carry out re-lease asbestos surveys and
pre-refurbishment surveys for all commercial premises.
In most cases there is not usually much
work that needs doing in the property to comply with the regulations, perhaps a
bit of sealing or (discrete) labelling, many low risk materials can usually be
safely removed without comprehensive or expensive control measures, this
information is contained in our Envacs reports. If you do have higher risk
materials that require immediate attention you will be informed and advised on
the correct steps to take, all asbestos materials are given a priority score to
let you know what needs 'dealing with' first.
These properties come under the revised regulations because they
are actually 'places of work' and the 'duty of care' and 'duty to manage'
responsibilities in respect of the
Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 must be
complied with. The penalties for non compliance will be more severe in many
commercial prosecution cases because
those at risk will include the general
Commercial asbestos surveys,
commercial asbestos reports, asbestos surveys of commercial
properties, asbestos surveys of shops, asbestos surveys of
offices, commercial asbestos surveyor, commercial property
asbestos surveyor, asbestos in commercial properties, asbestos
surveys of commercial buildings.
