Identifying Asbestos in Soil

Many brownfield (and some greenfield) sites contain the residue of asbestos from previous buildings or as a result of tipping or poor demolition. Asbestos detected is often found as discrete fibres in the soil or as pieces of material from the previous building.

In order to prevent risk to the environment and individuals, it is important to have the suspected soil or materials tested.

What is Asbestos Soil Testing?

Asbestos soil testing involves undertaking surveys and analysis to identify and quantify asbestos in soils. In addition to this, we assist local authorities, developers and other businesses in the protection of workers and the public from the hazards associated with the presence of asbestos in soil.

We help local authorities to meet their obligations under Part IIA of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, and employers to meet their obligations under The Control of Asbestos Regulations (2012) and the Health and Safety at Work Act.

Our services include carrying out quantitative risk assessments to assist our clients across the UK in decision-making, as well as providing expert advice on safe methods of work for contaminated sites.
