Private and public companies in the UK have a legal obligation to manage asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within their premises.

These services are typically provided by qualified and experienced professionals who have in-depth knowledge of asbestos regulations, testing methods, and safe removal procedures.

Here are some of the key areas where asbestos consultancy services can assist:

Asbestos Surveys and Risk Assessments

Before any renovation or demolition work takes place, it is essential to conduct an asbestos survey to identify the presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within the property. Asbestos consultants can carry out comprehensive surveys and risk assessments to determine the extent of asbestos contamination and evaluate the potential risks to occupants or workers.

Asbestos Management Plans

Based on the survey findings, asbestos consultants can develop customized asbestos management plans to guide property owners or managers in effectively managing asbestos-containing materials. These plans outline procedures for regular inspections, monitoring, and safe handling of ACMs to minimize the risk of exposure.

Asbestos Testing and Analysis

Asbestos consultants can collect samples of suspected materials and perform laboratory testing to confirm the presence of asbestos. They use specialized equipment and techniques to analyze the samples accurately. This information is crucial for making informed decisions regarding asbestos removal or encapsulation.

Asbestos Removal and Remediation

If asbestos-containing materials are found to be present and pose a risk, asbestos consultancy services can provide guidance on safe removal and disposal procedures. They can help coordinate with licensed asbestos removal contractors and ensure that the work is carried out in compliance with relevant regulations.
