Asbestos Reinspection Survey
The risk assessment following identification of asbestos should be reviewed regularly in accordance with State regulations with the timescales varying between States. The information collected during the management surveys is to be reviewed periodically via a reinspection survey.
The reinspection survey will review the condition of the Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) identified in a previous survey. The frequency should not exceed specified timescales and should also be based on an assessment of the risk. Some ACM that present a higher risk may require a shorter timescale for reinspection. The reinspection will revise where required the information collated within the original risk assessment.
In consultation with you, we can also update the original management survey report or reinspection report (depending upon whether the asset has been surveyed once or several times). This could also be the inclusion of any areas not previously accessed during the creation of the original management survey, with a view to making the asbestos register as robust as possible. OHMS Asbestos can include photographs and drawings as required.
As a value add, OHMS Asbestos can also undertake the legislative requirement of labelling all known asbestos on the site in accordance with AS 1319-1994 Safety signs for the Occupational Environment, at the time of reinspection.
The data collated from either of the above surveys is documented within a register and forms part of an overall asbestos report which OHMS has developed in line with HSG264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide.
