If you are responsible for managing the maintenance and repair of a building you must manage the asbestos in it. You have a legal duty to manage the risk of asbestos and protect the building’s users from exposure. Global Environmental offers those responsible for buildings a comprehensive range of services to ensure that everyone concerned is made aware of and protected from the hazard of exposure to asbestos.

Asbestos Surveys

We offer two types of survey:

  • Management surveys pinpoint the location and extent of asbestos-containing materials. This information is essential for creating an effective asbestos management plan, which includes an asbestos register for safety and compliance
  • Pre-Demolition/Refurbishment surveys are completed before work commences which might release asbestos.  They include a full programme of sampling, possibly including destructive sampling.

We are able to complete asbestos surveys rapidly, giving a summary of results within 48 hours.  We liaise with all parties concerned in a quick and effective manner.

We also offer:

  • Asbestos consultancy: guidance on compliance with regulations and advice on facilitating construction projects
  • Management plans: defining the procedures for identifying, managing, and controlling asbestos-containing materials
  • Training: we share our expert knowledge in courses tailored to meet your specific requirements
  • Project management: providing the skills to ensure asbestos removal project is successful, with the minimum of costs and disruption.

We work on all types of building with companies and organisations throughout the South East, from our offices in Sawbridgeworth on the Hertfordshire/Essex border.

Our management team shares over 60 years’ experience of asbestos consultancy.  They are supported by our field operations team of project managers and lead surveyors. All our lead surveyors have passed the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) P402 module, Building Surveys and Bulk Sampling for Asbestos.  They always carry out surveys in accordance with our in-house quality procedures.
