HOME > Asbestos: The Analysts' Guide HSG248 - 2nd edition update
The new guidance has been updated to take account of findings from Health and Safety Executive (HSE) interventions and developments in analytical procedures and methodology. It provides clarification on technical and personal safety issues, especially in relation to sampling and 4-stage clearances. New information on sampling soils for asbestos is included.
The guidance is designed to assist analysts in complying with their legal obligations. The publication should also be useful to asbestos consultants, occupational hygienists, safety professionals, asbestos removal contractors, building owners and facilities managers.
AEC are currently processing the new changes, updating external training course content and onsite procedures to meet the standards of our accreditation bodies.
We will look to provide a webinar about the changes and implications in due course.
