UKATA Approved Testing

UKATA (the UK Asbestos Training Association) is a leading authority on asbestos training in the United Kingdom. Certification by UKATA is a great way of knowing that the person testing for Asbestos at your property is working in accordance with the current HSE legislation and has completed the necessary training to identify, test and handle material containing, or suspected to contain, Asbestos.

Why test for Asbestos?

The supply and use of all asbestos as a building material has been banned in the UK since 1999, after it was found that breathing in particles of asbestos risks causing serious health problems. If your property was built before this date then it could contain one or more elements that include Asbestos – the good news is that generally speaking Asbestos does not pose any significant risk as long as it is not disturbed.

Disruptive work however is often unavoidable when making any kind of change to a buildings structure or the internal decoration of it, including drilling. The question you need to know the answer to is whether or not you’ll encounter any Asbestos – and we can help you with that.

If you have an older home, then areas you may want to ask us to test include:

  • Walls
  • Ceilings
  • Corrugated roofing
  • Cement Water Tanks
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Floor tiles
  • Vinyl flooring/sheeting
  • Insulation
  • Pipe cement
