  • With regards to other companies, you are the best company by far – not only are you quick to compile your reports (which are in a easy to understand format and are great for members of staff who are not familiar with surveys, remediation and risk ratings), you are also the best priced. Due to your experience with historical objects and with the Science Museum collection, I feel comfortable with you handling the objects.

    Sarah Kirkham
    The Science Museum
  • Thank you for the excellent training. I think it is the best training I have received while working in the Museum sector – I’d highly recommend it!

Asbestos Inspections

Inspections

All our inspections are carried out to a high standard in accordance with HSG 264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide. Our diligent inspectors take great care in providing all the necessary data on materials inspected including those that do not contain asbestos. This minimises future costs for analysis and prevents delays on projects.

Asbestos Management

If you have a non-domestic property built before 1999, this inspection enables you to meet the legal Dutyholder requirements. These inspections relate only to accessible areas without causing major destruction or disturbance. Asbestos Management Inspections are designed to meet Regulation 4, which lists eight criteria’s that need to be complied with. Our inspections deal with six of these, all you need to do is implement the recommendations and monitor ACM’s every 6-12 months.

Refurbishment and Demolition

This inspection is designed to locate any hidden asbestos before altering, dismantling or disturbing and building fabric, plant equipment or historic objects. During Refurbishment and Demolition Inspections, hidden areas are carefully opened to confirm if asbestos is present and therefore reduce the risks of exposure. Regulation 5 states that: “The Employer shall not conduct any works in demolition, maintenance or any other work, which exposes or is liable to expose their employees”. This regulation also requires the employer to assume that asbestos is present unless, there is sufficient evidence to prove otherwise.

Historic Objects

Our specialist knowledge is gained from a long experience working with major national museums across a wide range of collections. All our staff have specialist training in handling historic objects. For more detail please visit our Museums page.

Re-Inspections:

Kadec will contact you when any re-inspections are due in order to fulfil your obligations, and if required, re-inspect the ACM’s and update all report information for you. Regulation 4 (b) and (9) & (10) ACoP Guidance for the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 requires: “as a minimum, the material should be checked every 6-12 months, even if it is in good conditions and not going to be disturbed, as it may be for example accidentally damaged”.
