School Surveys FAQs

What is an Asbestos School Survey?

An Asbestos School Survey is a specialised inspection aimed at identifying and assessing the presence and condition of asbestos-containing materials in educational facilities to ensure the safety of students and staff.

Why are Asbestos Surveys critical in schools?

Given the vulnerability of children to asbestos exposure and the age of many school buildings, these surveys are crucial for detecting asbestos, preventing exposure, and ensuring compliance with health and safety regulations.

What types of Asbestos Surveys are conducted in schools?

Typically, Management Surveys are performed to manage asbestos safely during the school’s normal operation. Before any building or renovation work, a more detailed Refurbishment/Demolition Survey may be required.

How often should schools conduct Asbestos Surveys?

Schools should have an initial comprehensive survey and subsequent regular reinspections, typically annually, or more frequently if conditions change or following any construction activities.

What happens if asbestos is found in a school?

If asbestos is found, the survey will provide data to help create an effective asbestos management plan, which includes measures to mitigate risks, such as encapsulation or removal where necessary.
