Asbestos Warehouse Surveys – Ensuring a Safe and Compliant Industrial Environment

At Asbestos Surveys Essex, we understand that safety is paramount in industrial warehouses. Asbestos, a potential hidden hazard, requires thorough identification and management to protect warehouse employees and maintain smooth operations. Understanding the complexities and scale of warehouses, we focus on delivering surveys that ensure the utmost safety and compliance with all relevant health and safety regulations. In this section, we’ll explore the significance of asbestos warehouse surveys and how our expert team can help create a safe working environment.

Why Warehouse Surveys are important?

Warehouses often encompass large areas with varied uses, making them particularly vulnerable to overlooked asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). Given the age and construction history of many warehouse buildings, the risk of encountering asbestos is significant. Asbestos surveys are essential to identify these materials, assess their condition, and recommend appropriate management or removal strategies.

  • Employee Safety: Warehouses are hubs of activity, and ensuring the safety of employees is a top priority. Identifying and managing asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) helps maintain a secure work environment.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Compliance with asbestos regulations is essential for warehouse operators. It’s not just a legal requirement but also a responsible business practice.
  • Operational Continuity: Asbestos-related incidents can disrupt warehouse operations. Regular surveys help prevent such interruptions and keep the workflow uninterrupted.

Frequency of Re-inspection in Warehouses:

To comply with CAR2012 regulation 4, any identified or suspected Asbestos Containing Material within warehouses must be re-inspected and its condition re-assessed periodically. The frequency of re-inspections may vary based on factors such as:

  • High-Activity Areas: Areas with constant employee movement may require more frequent re-inspections.
  • Maintenance and Renovations: Ongoing maintenance and renovation projects within warehouses may impact ACMs, necessitating more frequent assessments.

The report provided will include:

  • Property/building address
  • Type of survey undertaken
  • Areas included in the survey
  • Location(s) of the ACMs (building identifier, floor number, room identifier and position within room/space)
  • Likelihood/extent of accessibility/vulnerability
  • Level of identification (confirmed, strongly presumed, presumed)
  • Quantity of ACM present
  • Type of asbestos present
  • Condition of identified ACM
  • Product type – Thermal insulation, wall panels, ceiling tiles, floor tiles, etc
  • Material risk assessment score (high, medium, low or very low)
  • Recommended action to reduce risk of exposure to asbestos to acceptable level
