Before any work which may disturb asbestos in your workplace commences, asbestos testing must be conducted. This is a legal requirement for all non-domestic properties.
We can provide you with asbestos testing, ensuring that your business is fully compliant with UK law.
Following the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, asbestos containing materials must not be disturbed unless asbestos testing has been carried out. This is a legal requirement which all employers and the self-employed must abide by. If you are responsible for a non-domestic pre-2000 building, you have a responsibility to ensure asbestos testing has been conducted before work which may disturb asbestos takes place.
If you are responsible for the maintenance or repair of a non-domestic building, then you are the duty holder and have a legal obligation to ensure adequate asbestos testing has been conducted. In the event that the duty holder fails to conduct asbestos testing on the premises, the duty holder will be held accountable. HSE will prosecute where there is evidence of non-compliance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. Consequences of failing to abide by the regulations can be severe; therefore, it is essential that your business carries out asbestos testing prior to work commencing.
