Any building built before the late 1990’s may have asbestos in it unless it has had a full refurbishment since.  Basically if you are responsible for  the upkeep of a non-domestic premises, which includes the common parts of domestic premises, then you have a legal duty under Regulation 4  of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012  to identify the location and condition of any asbestos containing materials (ACM).

There are two types of Asbestos Survey – the Management Survey and the Demolition & Refurbishment Survey. Clearwater Safety Group can carry out a non-invasive Management Survey, and write the report detailing our findings of the location and condition of any ACM we see.


We also run Asbestos Awareness training courses – they should be given to employees whose work “could foreseeably disturb the fabric of a building and expose them to asbestos or who supervise or influence the work.” (L143)

Those who may be exposed include:

  • construction workers;
  • general maintenance staff;
  • electricians;
  • plumbers;
  • gas fitters;
  • painters and decorators;
  • joiners;
  • shop fitters;
  • plasterers;
  • roofers;
  • heating and ventilation engineers;
  • telecommunication engineers;
  • computer and data installers;
  • fire and burglar alarm installers;
  • architects, building surveyors and other such professionals.
