Asbestos Surveys and Audits
Asbestos surveys are a pre-requisite for the compilation of asbestos registers.
Contractors required to do construction and / or maintenance work have the right (Constitutionally and in terms of the OHS Act, Act 85 of 1993) to be informed of asbestos availability within facilities that could negatively affect the health of their employees whilst doing do the aforementioned construction work.
Landlords are not exonerated from conducting asbestos surveys culminating into respective asbestos registers, as employers may request an asbestos register to ensure that such leased facilities are safe from asbestos exposure.
The scope of our surveys is to consider and report on: The type, condition and extent of asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in the building in all reasonably accessible areas; provide recommendations to ensure that areas of concern are made safe and that all ACMs are managed safely; and to assess the risk from the ACMs and to derive risk ratings.
