Tribeck Group – Asbestos Surveys – A nationwide service to assist you !
Our comprehensive surveys can assist you with your duty to comply with the asbestos management laws.
At Tribeck, all our surveys and sampling techniques for suspected asbestos containing materials (ACMs) are carried out in accordance with the requirements of the Health and Safety Executive guidance document ‘MDHS 100’. All samples obtained are sent to an independent, UKAS accredited laboratory for analysis.

In addition, all our employees that conduct surveys hold a P402 certificate issued by the British Institute of Occupational Hygienists.
This is undertaken to address the risks from asbestos associated with the continued use of the building.
This is the standard survey that should be carried out for the continued management of asbestos in premises. The purpose of the survey is to locate, as far as reasonably practicable, the presence and extent of any suspect ACMs in the building and assess their condition.
Sampling is the most common approach that has been used for surveys. However, a management survey can also involve presuming the presence or absence of asbestos. A management survey can be completed, using a combination of sampling ACMs and presuming ACMs or, indeed, just presuming. Any materials presumed to contain asbestos must also have their condition assessed (i.e. material assessment). Management surveys may involve minor intrusive work and some disturbance. The extent of intrusion will vary between premises and depend on what is reasonably practicable for individual properties.
Pre Refurbishment – Pre Demolition Survey:
These surveys will be used to locate and describe, as far as reasonably practicable, all ACMs (Asbestos Containing Materials) in the area where the refurbishment or demolition work will take place or in the whole building if demolition is planned.
The survey will involve destructive inspection as necessary, to gain access to all locations, including those that may be difficult to reach. Refurbishment work may vary from relatively small to large projects. Small scale work may occur in different parts of a building at different times over several years.
A full sampling programme is undertaken in these areas to identify possible ACMs and to obtain estimates of the volume and surface area of the ACMs present. The survey is primarily designed to identify ACMs so that they can be removed in preparation for the refurbishment or demolition.
