Working with a UKAS Accredited Analyst

As a licensed asbestos removal company, the relationship between ourselves and the UKAS accredited analytical companies is vital. Each licensed job, and many un-licensed jobs, require a clean air clearance certificate at the end of removal works to provide evidence that the area is safe and un-contaminated.

We work together to ensure that our scheduled works are achievable, and as and when required they will work with us out-of-hours if needed by our client.

The analyst will attend the site for various different reasons and types of air clearances. Reassurance air tests are to provide peace of mind that fibres are not higher than expected, and personal air monitoring ensures that our employees are not inhaling an unsafe quantity of asbestos fibres. When our works are complete, a 4-stage clearance is undertaken, this involves

  1. Preliminary check of site condition and job completeness
  2. A thorough visual inspection inside the enclosure / work area
  3. Air monitoring
  4. Final assessment post-enclosure / work area dismantling

This 4 stage clearance certificate provides sufficient evidence that all asbestos fibres have been properly removed and can cause no harm. If this is not the case, it will fail at one of the stages and the contractors have to continue the cleaning process until satisfactory.

We provide all air clearance certificates to our clients upon request, and also the waste consignment notes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the most common questions we get asked are answered below for you! For further information give us a...

Q: Why is asbestos hazardous to my health?

The fibres of the asbestos materials are long, thin strands that are very small. When inhaled, these fibres latch on to your lungs and organs and when built up over time can cause Asbestosis or Mesothelioma, both fatal and incurable diseases.

Q: Why do some works have to be notified to the HSE?

In order to protect all members of the public from any unnecessary asbestos fibre exposure, the HSE requires certain types of works to be notified to them at least 14 days in advance in order to regulate and control the removal procedures. These types of works include certain fibres and ACM’s, and these works may only be done by licensed contractors.

Q: Where can asbestos be found?

Asbestos can be found in many places. Any buildings pre 1999 could potentially have asbestos containing materials (ACM's) present. For a full list of potential places, head over to our blog.
