Our in-house laboratory is fully accredited to UKAS ISO 17025 standard for analysis of the presence and type of asbestos in bulk samples. All sample analysis is performed in accordance with HSE guidance (HSG248) and our own in-house procedures. This is undertaken by our team of highly trained, BOHS P401 qualified laboratory analysts using stereo and polarised light microscopy.
To ensure we maintain high levels of quality and accuracy, we participate in proficiency testing, such as the Asbestos in Materials Scheme (AIMS), administered by the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL), as well as our own internal quality control.
Our reliable service is available for samples either obtained by our own surveyors, or sent in by third parties. We offer a range of turn-around times in order to meet our clients’ urgent needs.
