Active HSE are specialist asbestos consultants. We work in partnership with our commercial, industrial and domestic clients to assess and manage the risk of asbestos in line with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

You don’t necessarily need to remove asbestos, which is why we offer an initial FREE OF CHARGE consultation to advise you on legislation and determine the best course of action. Our asbestos consultancy services then include:


  • Asbestos management surveys designed to ensure that nobody is harmed by the continuing presence of Asbestos Containing Material in the premises or equipment and that the asbestos containing material remains in good condition.
  • An asbestos register will be provided following a management survey to establish a baseline for the condition, accessibility and extent of any asbestos containing material. This register will be reviewed and retested on an annual basis to monitor the condition of the asbestos.
  • Refurbishment and/or demolition surveys when the premises, or part of it, need upgrading, refurbishment or demolition. The Survey does not need a record of the ACM condition but a survey is normally required.

Bulk Asbestos Sampling and Analysis

  • Sampling can be arranged when full asbestos building surveys are not required. Sampling is carried out in an unobtrusive manner and all sampling points are repaired on completion.

Samples are tested at UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accredited laboratory for analysis by PLM (Polarised Light Microscopy). Reports are accompanied by photographs of the sample location and a material risk assessment with recommendations on how to safely manage any asbestos containing materials.
