Did you know?

Clarification and identification of ‘Asbestos Containing Materials’ (ACM’s) should be completed prior to the construction phase of any project.

This is commonly know as an R&D Survey.

With many office refurbishment projects, building alterations are likely to take place and the minimum requirement to manage the risk of Asbestos, is to carry-out a Refurbishment & Demolition Survey.

If there are any ACM’s identified during this survey, a plan should be put in place to manage the issues identified prior to any works commencing.

As the duty holder/landlord/building owner you should allow a sum within your budgets to complete an R&D survey prior to commencement of any fit out or refurbishment work’

HSE (Health & Safety Executive)

The HSE offer further advice on your responsibilities here and below is a checklist of what you need to do as a landlord/owner.

  • Find out if asbestos is present by doing an R&D survey.
  • Record the location, type, and condition of the asbestos.
  • Assess the risk of anyone being exposed to the asbestos.
  • Prepare a plan on how to manage these risks.
