Asbestos air monitoring from Occupational Management Consultants Ltd – identify airborne asbestos to minimise risks and comply with regulations.

Whether because of weather damage or careless work practices, the potential release of asbestos dust in a building is a major safety concern.

Asbestos air monitoring allows you to quickly detect airborne asbestos, so you can promptly act to mitigate the risk.

Reducing the risks to maintenance workers, contractors and those nearby ensures that your workplace complies with the regulations.

Why Choose Asbestos Air Testing From OMC Ltd?

By reducing the risk of asbestos exposure, asbestos air monitoring provides you and your workforce with peace of mind.

At OMC, we provide rapid response air testing with on-site analysis by Phase Contract Microscopy (PCM).

Airborne fibre sampling is available in the following areas:


Background Monitoring

Background Monitoring is very useful to establish whether a problem exists before any removal work begins, especially in relation to any future Leak Monitoring and any problems that might occur with the Clearance Monitoring.

Leak Monitoring

Leak Monitoring can help ensure that the Control Measures used during the removal work are adequate.

A high result from Leak Monitoring will give an early warning that asbestos fibres are spreading away from the area of the asbestos removal works.

A high leak test result is particularly significant if previous Background Monitoring has demonstrated that the area had no ambient fibre level before the asbestos removal work began.

Reassurance Monitoring

Reassurance Monitoring is carried out to give reassurance that the area is safe for occupation following certain events:

  • If non-licensable asbestos has been removed, Reassurance Monitoring is run to ensure no asbestos fibres remain in the former work area.
  • Following a breach in an asbestos enclosure and the subsequent clean up, Reassurance Monitoring is required to demonstrate that the area is safe to re-enter.
  • Following the discovery of damaged asbestos in an area and the subsequent remedial actions, Reassurance Monitoring is required to demonstrate that the remedial actions are sufficient until the damage can be fully dealt with by licensed contractors.

4-Stage Clearance Monitoring For Certificate Of Reoccupation

Clearance Monitoring must be conducted by a UKAS accredited analytical company following licensable removal work. The Clearance Monitoring involves four distinct stages:

  • Stage 1: Preliminary check of site condition and job completeness;
  • Stage 2: A thorough visual inspection inside the enclosure / work area;
  • Stage 3: Disturbed Air Monitoring;
  • Stage 4: Final assessment post-enclosure / work area dismantling

Only after successful Clearance Monitoring can an area be classed as safe to re-enter.

Personal Monitoring

Personal Monitoring is used to ensure that the person wearing the sampling pump is adequately protected from whatever levels of airborne asbestos fibres are present and to ensure that the control measures in use are suitable and sufficient.
