RJS Waste Management are experienced in the management and handling of Asbestos contaminated waste. From our head office in Chichester, West Sussex and our regional offices in Oxford, London we provide asbestos surveys throughout the UK.
All non-domestic premises such as shops, offices, and factories built before the year 2000 are required by Law to maintain an Asbestos register. If asbestos is present, or is presumed to be present in those buildings, then it must be dealt with appropriately to protect employees, contracted workers and visitors to their premises from the risks of contact with asbestos.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 creates a legal duty to manage. Businesses are required to record of the location and condition of materials which are presumed to contain asbestos. Our BOHS P402 certified surveyors will carry out asbestos surveys on commercial buildings and if Asbestos is detected they will offer advice on its management and where neccessary safe containment and removal of asbestos contaminated materieas.
Building refurbishments, alterations and demolition projects will all requiree Management and Refurbishment surveys or Demolition and Re-inspection Surveys to carried out by appropriately qualified surveyors. Asbestos management survey provide information on what asbestos present and will outline its condition and appropriate management. All waste containing Asbestos will need to be labelled, encapsulated and safely removed.

The register will confirm compliance with Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012. which states that landlords or duty holders have the responsibility to manage asbestos containing materials (ACMs).
