Borough-wide asbestos survey

Posted on Wednesday 3rd October 2018
So that we can update our Asbestos Register we will be surveying the areas and blocks we manage from Friday 5 October 2018 up until April 2019.AY inspector

Surveys will be carried out in common areas of THH blocks and garages, as well as some tenants’ homes to check for asbestos. The information collected will then be made available to contractors, ensuring that all maintenance works can be carried out safely. 

A third party contractor called Armstrong York Environmental will be carrying out these surveys for THH; they will be wearing uniforms and ID badges branded with the Armstrong York logo.

Armstrong York might also send you a letter or call you to arrange a survey inside your home. If you do receive a letter or a phone call from them, please respond - they will be happy to arrange an appointment time that is convenient for you. 

The internal surveys should take about an hour to complete. When the survey is taking place the surveyor will need access to all of the rooms in your home, as well as storage areas. They may also need to take some samples for testing, which will be removed under safe and controlled conditions. If your home is surveyed you will be able to request an asbestos report, which will tell you the results from any samples and where asbestos is located.
