Asbestos Re-Inspections

Asbestos re-inspection surveys, but with added Topscan benefits!

Statutory requirements…don’t you just love them?! Unfortunately for most of us they simply can’t be ignored. But if something’s got to be done, why not make the most out of the opportunity you have? Puzzled?!

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 states that the condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACM) must be re-inspected regularly and records updated accordingly.

This means that at least once a year you’ll have a budget set aside to get someone in to conduct your asbestos re-inspection, so why not kill two birds with one stone? During our site visit to carry out the re-inspection, we can also conduct additional Surveys to update your building outline drawings. Plus, we’ll take the opportunity to collect further key site information such as occupancy, assets, room functions, fire services and more.

One person, less disruption, more data and an opportunity to make your budget go further….

Our Asbestos Re-Inspection service includes:
  • Re-inspection of your known Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM), ensuring your compliance with CAR 2012 regulations
  • Update existing asbestos records
  • Provide a report on the results of the asbestos survey
  • Advise where there have been any changes to your known ACM and provide recommendations to maintain, based on risk assessments
  • If you’re a user of a new property management register such as the MICAD IPR Asbestos Module, we can populate the Asbestos Module with your existing asbestos records as well as adding the re-inspection results, giving you a single location for your historic asbestos information and allowing stakeholders to access the information with ease prior to attending site
  • If you’re already using a property management register, we’ll simply update the Asbestos Register with our findings
How often do I need to have an asbestos inspection?

The time between inspections will depend on the type of ACM, the location and by the activities taking place in that area. It would be expected that the re-inspection would not exceed 12 months, however, in more remote locations, this can be less frequent and for high risk items it should be inspected more frequently.

The risk is assessed by the type, extent, condition and location of the asbestos. For full guidance we suggest viewing the HSE website. Or to speak to one of our re-inspection experts, feel free to contact us.
