It makes sense and saves you money to keep your asbestos information and surveys up to date. It’s also your legal duty to manage the presence of asbestos in a building that you are responsible for to ensure the health and safety of those who visit the premises. We can help you to stay compliant and keep all of your asbestos information up to date. Asbestos surveys are required by law to be updated annually. This is called an asbestos reinspection. Its aim is to keep you and everyone else safe. Don’t delay. Get it booked now.
When you use Oracle for your reinspection we guarantee you that we will not be beaten on speed, service or delivery. We challenge you to find anyone better.
“Speedy turnaround and most professional service”
Steve Jones – Compliance Manager – UK Mission Enterprise (London)
Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 and for compliance with regulation 4: The Duty to Manage Asbestos in non-domestic premises, there is a requirement that an inspection survey is to be carried out on any asbestos containing materials.
What is an asbestos reinspection?
Asbestos re-inspections are undertaken on buildings that have previously had an asbestos management survey. The purpose of a re-inspection is to check all positive samples found on site and to see whether the condition of the asbestos containing materials or ACM in the building has changed due to accidental damage, wear and tear, etc. If the condition of the asbestos material has changed, this could then affect the material risk which, can then lead to the product no longer being safe and manageable.
How is a reinspection survey carried out?
Reinspection surveys are carried out by using the initial asbestos management survey. The surveyor uses the information containing all previously identified asbestos during the original survey and methodically examines the site and reinspects each, and every asbestos item identified in the original survey.
The surveyor will check the condition of the asbestos material and will report any damage or the need for encapsulation or protection. In addition, new photographs will be taken. A new report will be issued with an up-to-date condition assessment, photos, and recommendations for placing asbestos into a safe and manageable condition.
How often does an asbestos re-inspection survey need to be carried out?
An asbestos re-inspection survey is a legal requirement and in most cases should be every 12 months. However, a risk assessment should be undertaken to clarify that this is sufficient. In high-risk buildings, the need for reinspection surveys could be far less, but in some cases, they may be required more often. It is standard and accepted practice to adhere to the 12 month recommendation within the legislation and there must be a good reason not to do so.
How much does an asbestos reinspection cost?
The cost of a reinspection survey will depend on the number of asbestos items identified during the original survey. Reinspection surveys of very small properties can be as low as £90 + vat. Reinspection surveys can cost thousands of pounds for larger sites with hundreds of asbestos items, such as hospital buildings.
How can we help you?
Within the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 it states “As a minimum, the asbestos management plan, including records and drawing, should be reviewed every 12 months.”
With this in mind, it is essential that an asbestos re inspection is undertaken every year as a bare minimum. Not only can we do reinspections that had been carried out by Oracle Solutions Ltd, we have the ability to reinspect from any other previous asbestos management report that can be provided to us as an electronic or hard copy.
An asbestos re inspection must be carried out by a competent person, must have sufficient training and experience or knowledge. Rest assured, with our UKAS Accredited Asbestos Surveyors (UKAS accredited inspection body No. 4600), knowledge, training and experience, you are in safe hands.
Our reinspection reports will include all asbestos containing materials that was previously identified from asbestos management surveys that had been undertaken, new photographs of the materials, new recommendations to advise what the next steps are and plans showing all identified asbestos within your site or building.
