Report

At 0800 Asbestos, we pride ourselves on producing accurate and valuable reports with speed of production at the core of our business model. It’s through our investment into the latest technology, including tablet PCs, a dedicated software solution and cloud based servers that we can deliver our reports within 2 working days maximum.

Our Asbestos Management software is specifically designed to bring together all the functions of an asbestos consultancy into a single end-to-end solution. This includes initial enquiries, appointments and quotes through to asbestos report production and asbestos register generation.

Each surveyor is equipped with the latest Windows tablet PC to build our asbestos reports. It gives them access to the details of the job and the opportunity to take photographs of all the relevant areas to build a thorough and accurate floor/building plan during the investigation. The plans can then be used to analyse the premises, providing sample locations via the table and on-site.

External UKAS accredited labs

Once the investigation is complete, the plans are sent immediately to the office and automatically inserted into reports where required. Whilst the reports are being processed, the samples collected by the surveyor are “checked out” to our external UKAS accredited labs.

Once received by a lab, the samples are downloaded and "checked in" and the job updated. This ensures that 0800 Asbestos can provide the highest quality service at the best value for money.

Asbestos Sampling

The only safe and effective way to identify asbestos-containing materials is by having it tested by a professional laboratory. Our surveyors can take samples from your premises and have a certified result within one working day and sent immediately to you by email.

Types of Asbestos

Once the sample results are available, we are then able to establish whether the material contains asbestos and if so, what type. There are three main types of asbestos – Chrysotile, Amosite and Crocidolite. They are usually called white, brown and blue asbestos respectively.

Blue and brown asbestos (the two most dangerous forms) have not been imported into the UK since 1985. White asbestos was banned in 1999.

If you’re in need of our services, do not hesitate to call us to ensure your issue is dealt with immediately.
