What Is Asbestos Management?

Asbestos management is the prevention of an uncontrolled release of asbestos fibres, whether that be during the day to day occupation of premises or through any refurbishment, alterations or maintenance works on premises.

An asbestos management survey will provide information on the location, condition, type and extent of asbestos containing materials within premise and the risks they pose to assist in implementing sufficient policies and procedures to reduce the risk of an uncontrolled release of asbestos fibres.

The management of existing asbestos is important to ensure asbestos materials are not damaged or deteriorate to such an extent that staff, external contractors, the public or visitors are unnecessarily exposed to airborne asbestos fibres. This will take a combined effort, starting with the duty holder or responsible persons and would include co-operation of management, staff, maintenance, contractors and consultants.

The general principles of an asbestos management strategy are as follows:


Client Testimonials

  • I had a asbestos survey carried out recently on my brother in laws pre fab for his and his families peace of mind. I was totally unaware of what to expect, but I need not have worried as Stone Asbestos was helpful, approachable and patient, always ready to answer and explain any questions or queries. Their report was thorough and was understandable with plenty of pictures to accompany the narrative. Any questions that came to mind after the report had been sent were answered with an easy to understand explanation and advice. All in all a worry free experience. Thank you Stone Asbestos.
