The report will contain a Site Assessment, what is that?
We give every property surveyed an inclusive site assessment score. This is to give you an overview at a glance of the whole survey findings. The site assessment score will be based on the highest risk asbestos element which has been identified during the asbestos survey. The risk categories detailed within the table are part of the material assessment algorithm as detailed within current HSE surveying guidance. Materials with assessment scores of 10 or more are regarded as having a high potential to release fibres, if disturbed. Scores of between 7 and 9 are regarded as having a medium potential, and between 5 and 6 a low potential. Scores of 4 or less have a very low potential to release fibres. Non asbestos materials are not scored. The assessment score is coloured which is replicated throughout the report and register for ease of understanding and remains the same for specific item assessment as well as overall site assessment.
The report must contain Asbestos Material Assessments, what are they?
The material assessment is worked out as follows:
Product Type + Damage Extent + Surface Treatment + Asbestos Type + = Material Assessment
