Our consultants are trained to identify potential contamination and to safely collect samples. With our own in-house laboratory and accredited soil analysis sub-contractors, we ensure samples are analysed promptly and any findings reported back to the client.
All of our lab analysts hold the BOHS proficiency module P401 – ‘Identification of Asbestos in Bulk Samples’ that enables them to analyse bulk asbestos materials identified within soils, along with our fully approved sub-contractors who can undertake further analysis of contaminated soil samples.
When it comes to discovering asbestos in soil it can be unearthed in a variety of forms including insulation, loose fill, cement, asbestos insulating board and lagging. Often fibres present in soil are not visible to the naked eye, which is why the comprehensive analysis of soil needs to be conducted by our approved sub-contractors.
