What’s keeping you from full compliance?

Asbestos is one of the most misunderstood areas of health and safety, with many businesses paying the price of poor practice. Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012, every employer and building owner is legally bound to manage onsite asbestos, which is most often found in structures built before 2000. 

A Southalls asbestos survey clears the confusion and puts you on the path to full compliance with a range of specialist support features:

An onsite management survey of all common asbestos hotspots

Sampling of potential asbestos-containing materials, with a 48-hour testing turnaround

A tailor-made location plan with asbestos register, highlighting the presence of toxic fibres across your premises

An itemised asbestos management plan, including best practice recommendations and a post-survey monitoring schedule to head off future hazards

Protect your workers and avoid penalties with bespoke asbestos services that go above and beyond

"Having worked extremely closely with Southalls for many years now we remain delighted with their personal approach and desire to understand our business. They continue to provide a very much ‘hands-on’ service in all areas and give us great confidence that we’re on the right track in building a safer environment for all our staff. We certainly would not look elsewhere for an outsourced H&S advisor and look forward to working together in the future."
