Asbestos Management Surveys in Manchester


The type of asbestos survey you require will vary during the lifespan of your premises and several may be needed over time. Asbestos management surveys in Manchester are required during the normal occupation and use of the building to ensure continued management of the Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) in situ. A refurbishment or demolition survey will be necessary when the building (or part of it) is to be upgraded, refurbished or demolished.

HSG264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide sets out the management asbestos survey as follows:

An asbestos Management survey is the standard survey. The purpose of asbestos management surveys is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACM in the building which could be damaged or disturbed during normal occupancy, including foreseeable maintenance and installation, and to assess their condition.

Management surveys should cover routine and simple maintenance work. However, it has to be recognised that where ‘more extensive’ maintenance or repair work is involved, there may not be sufficient information in the management survey and a localised refurbishment survey will be needed. A refurbishment survey will be required for all work which disturbs the fabric of the building in areas where the management survey has not been intrusive.
