When you have materials that may contain asbestos, it is recommended that you have a sample analysed to positively confirm whether or not asbestos is present. You cannot tell by visual inspection that a product does not contain asbestos.
Chemsafety can come to your site to inspect and collect samples for analysis, or you can drop a sample in to us. Results are usually available the next working day. If asbestos is present in the sample, we can provide you with guidance on what to do next.
For non-friable asbestos products such as cement boards, and for vinyl flooring, or domestic textured or stipple plaster ceilings. If you are unsure whether to collect a sample yourself, please call us on 0800 366 370.
We will then email our report, usually the next day.
