Air Monitoring

When work with asbestos or work which may disturb asbestos is being carried out, the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012 require employers and the self-employed to prevent exposure to asbestos fibres.

Our Air Monitoring services can help you to prove the spread of asbestos has been prevented and provide a variety of further measurements to assist with asbestos management including:

  • Assessing potential exposure to airborne asbestos.
  • Checking the effectiveness of management control measures.
  • Supporting existing and future risk assessments.

We are able to offer a range of asbestos air monitoring services including:

  • Background Air Sampling - to ascertain ambient airborne fibre concentrations prior to an activity which may cause asbestos to become airborne.

  • Leak Air Sampling - to measure airborne fibre concentrations outside of an enclosure where work with asbestos is being carried out.

  • Personal Sampling - to measure the exposure of operatives carrying out work with asbestos in order to check control measures are effective and to assess respiratory protection.

  • Reassurance Sampling - to ascertain airborne fibre concentrations after remedial measures have been undertaken.


We provide a dedicated service throughout the UK and are able to cover a wide range of on-site environments.
