Whilst conducting a survey, an Asbestos Risk Assessment is carried out to determine the most appropriate action needed to be taken with any asbestos or presumed asbestos containing materials and is used to formulate a management plan.
The two parts of the risk assessment are:
Material Risk Assessment
This assessment takes in to account each of the following four risk factors:
1. Product type
3. Surface treatment
4. Asbestos type
Priority Risk Assessment
This assessment takes in to account the following risk factors:
2. Likelihood of disturbance
3. Exposure potential
4. Maintenance activity
Each part of the assessment is given a score and the total scores are used to determine the outcome and provide the required information.
