Asbestos Testing of Your Home or Business in Bristol

Asbestos Testing of Your Home or Business in Bristol

The presence of asbestos in homes or commercial buildings can pose a risk to the health of those living or working there. However, identifying asbestos containing materials can be difficult. There are several materials and products that could have asbestos in them if they were made before the year 2000. These include insulation, concrete, water tanks, and pipes. But if you wish to know for certain if something contains asbestos, you need to test for it. Identifying asbestos containing materials requires a survey. It will involve taking samples and taking them to a laboratory to be tested.

Testing must be carried out on materials if you are going to undertake two of three types of work. For low-risk work that is going to take place, a licensed contractor is not needed. Testing doesn't need to occur as long as the risks are managed. Testing is necessary for work where you need to notify the Health and Safety Executive. The HSE must be informed of the work 2 weeks in advance. The site also must be surveyed and air tested by a UKAS laboratory.

One of the critical stages of asbestos testing in Bristol is to take samples and have them analysed. The techniques used aim to reduce disturbance of the materials. However, sometimes asbestos surveyors need to use more aggressive methods. They may need to disturb material such as floor tiles, or go through walls to take a sample. If you wish to conduct any work on your business premises or home, you will need to have some samples collected. You can take samples yourself. But many people prefer to use a professional service from a surveyor.

You can take samples if a segment of material has already been broken and poses no threat to you. However, you will require a professional to extract material from intact areas. Once your surveyor has taken samples, they will deliver them to a UKAS accredited laboratory. The lab will test for the presence of asbestos and confirm its existence to you and your surveyor.

The Importance of Asbestos Air Testing in Bristol

There is another element to asbestos testing in Bristol, and that is asbestos air testing. The Control of Asbestos Regulation 2012 has rules for companies. It establishes that there should be no more than 0.1 fibres of asbestos per millimetre in the air over four hours. An air testing surveyor for Bristol should perform this test.

Background monitoring is performed before asbestos disposal. Leak monitoring checks outside the work place during disposal of asbestos.
