Survey: use of asbestos surveyors and analysts

From our colleagues at Barbour EHS.

The HSE has launched a survey about the use of asbestos surveyors and analysts as part of the legal duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises.

The HSE is building its evidence base to inform how the accepted recommendations from the Work and Pensions Select Committee inquiry into the HSE’s approach to asbestos management are implemented.

Participation in this survey will help the HSE build evidence to inform this work.

It is relevant for people who have commissioned the services of an asbestos surveyor or surveying organisation; and/or, have commissioned the services of an asbestos analyst (via an analytical organisation) where licensed asbestos removal activity has taken place.

The survey closing date is 23:59 on 8 December 2023. It is available here.
