Asbestos Air Monitoring

Asbestos becomes a hazard to health when asbestos fibres become airborne. Asbestos air monitoring is used during and after any asbestos remediation works. Air monitoring can also used to assess background airborne fibre levels within locations and to asses correct levels of respiratory protective equipment.

Summit Environmental is able to provide UKAS accredited asbestos fibre air monitoring on site for the duration of your project. All air monitoring is completed in line with the HSE guidance HSG 248.


Asbestos Remediation Management Sussex

In most cases, there is no danger from asbestos as long as the materials that contain the asbestos are intact and undamaged. Fibre release can occur if you disturb ACM’s during renovations or repairs, or if material containing asbestos becomes damaged. Our risk assessment remediation services include;

  • Writing and preparing asbestos removal specification documents
  • Writing, preparing and evaluating asbestos removal tender documentation
  • Vetting of method statements and plans of work
  • Full site management and supervision of contractors works
  • Update asbestos registers following works
  • Instructing the approved Asbestos Removal Contractor
  • Ensuring compliance with current regulations

Land contamination

How it works


To confirm whether asbestos is present we can undertake a historical data study or complete a site-specific sampling of visible asbestos present on surface soils. Additional site investigation techniques to investigate further below the surface, such as the use of boreholes, trial pits, or trenches can also be used /provided to identify the presence of asbestos.


Once the samples are taken Summit Environmental can complete quantification analysis on the amount of asbestos and types of ACM’s present. The sampling testing will be carried out in an accredited laboratory and are weighed and measured as a % of the total sample weight. Asbestos fibres are quantified by sedimentation of the sample in water which is subsequently analysed Using Phase Contrast Optical Microscopy (PCOM). Leading to a Waste classification of the soil.


Once asbestos has been identified and assessed as containing waste materials, Summit Environmental can manage the remediation process for you. This can include excavation and removal to capping with provision of control measures to minimise asbestos exposure.


Asbestos legislation is particularly complex; the penalties for not managing your requirements can be severe; many clients ask for assistance in the management of their compliance and risk management.  Consultancy advice often involves providing advice on surveys or regulations to expert witness and completing investigations on potential asbestos exposures.

Summit Environmental regularly prepares and reviews remediation scopes; we are also able to provide project management on large scale asbestos survey and abatement projects, including refurbishment or demolition work.

Alternatively allow us to improve your asbestos compliance by completing gap analysis, reviewing previous asbestos information and implementing the correct asbestos management requirements.


Asbestos Management Plans.

Asbestos Management Plans – The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 states that all duty holders with known or presumed asbestos within their premises must have an effective written asbestos management plan in place.

The asbestos management plan identifies the risks posed by the asbestos present in the property and sets out procedures to control them. The key to effective management is to ensure that the action plan is monitored and reviewed on a regular basis.
