ASBESTOS SURVEYING

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has proposed under the new Health & Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulation 2016, that people in control of a work place (PCBU) engage a suitably qualified person to undertake an asbestos building survey. 

There are three types of asbestos surveys that we can undertake on a building:

Management Survey
 

This type of survey is to help a PCBU identify and manage asbestos within their work place that may be accessible during normal occupancy of the building. It will indicate the location of asbestos materials, provide a risk assessment and can be used to develop an asbestos management plan. It is a non intrusive survey and should not be used for demolition or refurbishment.

Refurbishment Survey
 

Helps to identify and manage asbestos within an area of the work place if refurbishment of the building is planned. This type of survey can be an add on to a management survey. It will be fully intrusive in the area of refurbishment only and may not include the complete building. It will indicate the location of asbestos materials, provide a risk assessment and can be used to develop an asbestos management plan and/or an asbestos removal control plan (ARCP) for the planned refurbishment work.

Demolition Survey
 

A demolition survey is required if a building is to be demolished. This type of survey can be an add on to a management survey if one has already been completed. demolition surveys are a fully intrusive inspection of all areas of the building, including all walls, floor lining, sub floors, wall cavities, roofs and ceiling spaces . It will indicate location of asbestos materials, provide a risk assessment and can be used to develop an asbestos management plan and or an asbestos removal control plan (ARCP)  for the building demolition .
