Our experienced and helpful team work with independence, impartiality and integrity and have all the attributes to deliver an efficient and reliable solution to any of your asbestos surveying or asbestos management demands.

Our professional experienced surveyors are fully trained in accordance with the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) P402 Building Surveys and Bulk Sampling for Asbestos qualification as a minimum.

All our surveys are undertaken in accordance with the HSE publication HSG264.

 When a property has been subjected to an asbestos survey you will receive an asbestos survey report. TGS Environmental is renowned for producing some of the best, easy to understand and user friendly asbestos survey reports in the industry.  All our asbestos survey reports are easy to follow and will highlight all locations of asbestos within a given building, together with the essential details such as asbestos type, location, extent and condition. The asbestos survey report will contain all our findings and recommendations within one handy document including laboratory results of all materials tested and an asbestos register for the property.

If you require self adhesive health and safety warning labels after a survey has been conducted by us then we will send these to you free of charge. The locations for these labels will be indicated in your survey report.

Each TGS Environmental Asbestos Survey Report includes:

  • Executive Summary
  • Introduction covering the scope of work
  • General site and survey information
  • Entry sheets highlighting sample points and results, including photographic and material assessment results.
  • Asbestos / Property register
  • Bulk analysis results
  • Detailed Plan

We really believe that our survey reports can not be beaten for quality and this is a key consideration when choosing an asbestos surveying company. Of course, in the unlikely event that you don’t understand any aspect of your survey report then we will be happy to talk through it with you.

What is an Asbestos Management Survey?

An Asbestos Management Survey (formerly a Type 2 Survey) is the minimum asbestos survey required in any non-domestic property that was built before 2000.
An Asbestos Management Survey is generally referred to as a standard survey. The purpose of this inspection is to locate and identify, as far as is reasonably practicable, the presence, extent and condition of any asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in the premises and assess their condition to comply with Regulation 4 ‘Duty to Manage Asbestos in Non-Domestic Properties’ as stated in the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012)

An Asbestos Management Survey will identify asbestos containing materials which could become damaged or disturbed during normal everyday occupancy and an assessment on the condition of the materials will also be made.

What is an Asbestos Refurbishmen Survey?

An Asbestos Refurbishment Survey (formerly a Type 3 Survey) is needed before any ‘significant’ refurbishment work is carried out as a requirement under Construction (Design and Management) Regulations stated in the guidance for Regulation 4 in Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012) ‘Significant’ could for example mean removing walls, doors, windows etc., installing new equipment or even re-wiring. This is one of the first steps for the duty holder to comply with the HSE for Regulation 4 ‘The Management of Asbestos in Non-Domestic Premises’ of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012)

This type of survey is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in the area where the refurbishment or demolition work will take place or in the whole building. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to access. An Asbestos Refurbishment Survey may also be required in other circumstances, e.g. when more intrusive maintenance and repair work will be carried out, and for instances of plant removal or dismantling.

What is an Asbestos Demolition Survey?

An Asbestos Demolition Survey (formerly a Type 3 Survey) is needed before any ‘significant’ demolition work is carried out as a requirement under Construction (Design and Management) Regulations stated in the guidance for Regulation 4 in Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012) ‘Significant’ could for example mean removing walls, doors, windows etc., installing new equipment or even re-wiring. This is one of the first steps for the duty holder to comply with the HSE for Regulation 4 ‘The Management of Asbestos in Non-Domestic Premises’ of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012)

This type of survey is used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in the area where the refurbishment or demolition work will take place or in the whole building. The survey will be fully intrusive and involve destructive inspection, as necessary, to gain access to all areas, including those that may be difficult to access. An Asbestos Demolition Survey may also be required in other circumstances, e.g. when more intrusive maintenance and repair work will be carried out, and for instances of plant removal or dismantling.

Asbestos Re-inspection Surveys

As part of your duty to manage asbestos, you are legally required to re-inspect each Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) on a regular basis regardless of its condition and location. The frequency of inspection is dictated by the type, extent and location of asbestos, but must not exceed 12 months. This is because asbestos materials may change over time due to either damage from minor accidents, maintenance and repair works, floods, fires, severe weather etc. or general deterioration of the materials or their coverings, which could increase the risk of exposure.

If you already have an asbestos management plan in place then TGS Environmental Ltd could assist you in carrying out the re-inspection of the ACMs on a regular basis. Working closely with you, we can devise appropriate re-inspection programs, undertake the inspections, update your asbestos register accordingly and keep you legally compliant.

Asbestos Sampling and Analysis

The only way to prove whether or not a material contains or does not contain asbestos is to use a UKAS accredited asbestos analysis service. Without expert analysis and without confirmation that the material does not contain asbestos the law states that you must assume that the material does contain asbestos.
TGS Environmental Ltd utilise the professionalism and expertise of an independent state of the art UKAS accredited laboratory for the analysis of materials collected during the asbestos surveying process.
