Managing my asbestos

5. Inspect your building

This is known as a 'management survey'. The aim is to produce an 'asbestos register' which says where asbestos is located or where there might be asbestos.

For small premises

eg workshop, trading estate unit, office, shop.

If you follow these steps correctly, your own inspection is normally sufficient to make an asbestos register.

For larger premises

eg more than 25 employees, more than a few workrooms, or if you are unsure.

You may decide to employ a competent asbestos surveyor. (See link on right)
