Air Testing

Asbestos Air Testing

Air monitoring in many instances is a legal requirement and the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012) makes reference to air monitoring in several of the Regulations.

Full Circle Compliance will ensure all of your air testing requirements are met and in line with current guidelines.
When disturbed, asbestos can cause fine fibers to become airborne. Air testing is required to confirm a safe environment.

Static Testing

Static sampling to comply with CAWR and the ACOPs is appropriate for:

Background sampling to establish fibre concentrations before any activity which may lead to airborne asbestos contamination; leakage testing to ensure that the steps taken to prevent the enclosure leaking are and remain effective and it is not releasing airborne respirable fibres; reassurance sampling, which may be conducted in certain circumstances to confirm that the residual asbestos fibre concentrations are <0.01 f/ml. For example, after the removal of an enclosure; and static sampling to assess asbestos fibre concentrations inside enclosures before entry for a visual inspection.

Personal Testing

The fibre levels obtained in personal sampling will reflect the nature of the work performed by the operator and the circumstances and conditions at the time of sampling. Therefore it is essential that the analyst collects accurate information on the tasks performed by the worker during sampling (including duration) and on the other factors which will influence exposure including how the tasks were performed (tools, equipment etc and methods and techniques) and the controls that were employed. This information should be used to allow meaningful interpretation of the sampling results.

Four Stage Clearance Testing For Reoccupation

Following asbestos removal, the premises must be assessed to determine whether they are thoroughly clean and fit for reoccupation (or, as appropriate, demolition). Once the licensed contractor is satisfied that the area is clean and ready for future use, the area should be assessed by an independent organisation which is accredited by UKAS as complying with ISO 17025. All air measurements should comply with the ISO 17025 standard. If this assessment of the workplace is passed as satisfactory, then a certificate of reoccupation is issued. The certificate is issued to the contractor and, as appropriate, to the client where the latter has engaged the analyst.
