Why asbestos re-inspections matter

Like any other building material, asbestos-containing materials are subject to potential damage and degradation over time – and they pose the most risk. When an asbestos product degrades it has a higher risk of hazard to health, which is why an asbestos re-inspection survey at regular intervals to ensure that the condition of its previous inspection has not been compromised or has deteriorated since is important.

Whilst every property should have had an asbestos inspection Manchester for asbestos-containing materials at some point over the last 20 years, the results of those original surveys are very unlikely to remain the same without constant management. This is why regular re-inspection surveys are essential.

Is an asbestos re-inspection survey relevant to my building?

The short answer to this is that if your previous report confirms the existence of asbestos within the property, then yes.

The present asbestos will be under an asbestos management plan and will require a reassessment over time to determine if it has been managed properly and remains in the same state as the last inspection. If you have had asbestos removal previously, this would also be taken into effect with a re-inspection survey to provide reassurance that the material has been fully removed.

Who undertakes the re-inspection?

Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, any work around the inspection of asbestos-containing materials has to be done by a professional asbestos removal company that specialise in asbestos removal services only.

Even if the company that undertook your previous asbestos testing and survey are no longer in business, it must be taken over by another professional body, that can also provide a thorough inspection of the work that the company did to safely manage/contain/remove asbestos within the property.

A re-inspection requires a visual inspection and a full reassessment of associated risks concerning the condition of the material and its environment. Only a qualified party will have the relevant information, instruction and training to carry out this work and it should never be attempted by anyone not carrying the necessary credentials.
