Keegans have considerable experience in the field of Asbestos Management and Asbestos Surveying in both domestic and non-domestic settings. We have an experienced team who have worked extensively for Local Authorities, corporate & commercial clients and within the social housing sector. Our services include those listed below.
Asbestos Re-inspection Surveys
Regular inspection of identified ACMs to ensure their condition is monitored and remedial actions identified. This is a crucial part of the Asbestos Management process ensuring data remains current and provides an audit trail of the management process.
Asbestos Refurbishment & Demolition Surveys
Where works are planned, which will disturb the fabric of a building or an area within it, this survey is a legal requirement in advance of planned works to ensure all ACMs have been identified and action taken prior to works commencing.
Asbestos Management Surveys
Full sampling surveys to all accessible building locations, which provides a register of all identified Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) and a Risk Assessment for each location. It will also advise on recommendations for action based on survey findings.
Asbestos Management Plan
This is the primary requirement for all building managers and should be an active working document reflecting the policy and procedures in place within an organisation to manage asbestos. This will also include all survey and re-inspection data and record management actions, repairs and removals throughout the life of the building(s). Regular reviews and updates are essential to maintain the validity of the documents and the effectiveness of management procedures.
Asbestos Awareness Training
All staff involved within the management of asbestos or who have a potential to be exposed to asbestos within their working day must have received suitable training relevant to their role.
To ensure we meet the needs of our asbestos clients, Keegans operate a full Quality Management System registered to BS EN ISO 9001:2015 which is regularly externally monitored and audited for compliance with the Standard. The production of all surveys and reports are prepared and administered in strict accordance with our quality control systems.
Working across a wide range of sectors
Keegans work extensively in the public and private sectors on a wide variety of residential, education and health, regeneration, commercial and industrial sector projects.
