Asbestos surveys

Crucial Environmental Ltd are accredited to BS EN ISO/IEC 17020 by UKAS to undertake both Management and Refurbishment & Demolition Surveys in accordance with current HSE guidelines.

We conduct two types of asbestos surveys:

Management Survey

A management survey is required for all commercial and non-domestic properties including common ways to shared accommodation (i.e. corridors, stairs, stores within flats etc). All surveys are conducted in a professional manner in accordance with HSG264. A completed management survey is the beginning of your organisation’s duty to comply with statute law. The survey is based on surface level sampling only and can be used for reference towards very light maintenance.

Pre-Refurbishment / Demolition Survey

This type of survey is requested when a building is to have small refurbishment through to complete demolition. We can cater for a management survey to be conducted within the majority of the building, with specified areas targeted where only part of a building is to be refurbished. When major refurbishment within the building or a total demolition of the structure is to occur, then a totally intrusive inspection using destructive techniques is adopted. Ceilings, walls, floors and under crofts are internally inspected and samples of suspicious Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM’s) are obtained for laboratory analysis.

Asbestos Lab Testing

We have our own in-house laboratory which is accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 by UKAS to analyse for asbestos in bulk materials.Samples are analysed using stereo microscopy, polarised light microscopy and dispersion staining.

We invite samples from all clients, be it domestic or commercial. From a single sample to regular multiple samples. Samples can be dropped off/sent to our laboratory in Worthing, West Sussex where we will analyse all samples and send a Certificate of Analysis containing the results by email.

We can also carry out emergency analysis when results are needed swiftly.

Please contact us with your requirements.

Asbestos Sampling / Testing

Asbestos Sampling

If you have a suspicious material that you would like testing for the presence of asbestos, we offer a service where we visit your site, safely obtain a small sample (usually up to 5cm²) and submit it to our own UKAS (United Kingdom Accredited Service) accredited laboratory.

We take photographic evidence of the sample site and issue a concise sampling report incorporating the Certificate of Analysis along with our recommendations if required.
