Asbestos

There are three main types of Asbestos. These are commonly called Blue Asbestos (Crocidolite), Brown Asbestos (Amosite) and White Asbestos (Chrysotile). All of them are carcinogenic.
Blue and brown asbestos however, are considered more hazardous than white. You cannot identify them just by their colour, so a sample can be analysed using our testing servce.

Why do you need PASS (UK) Ltd to carry out an asbestos survey for you? Ironically maybe you don’t!

Take a look at the content of the Asbestos Management and DIY Inspection pages, all the information, advice and help you require may be there.

Otherwise maybe you do need the expertise we offer.

X-Ray

The danger comes from breathing air containing asbestos fibres. If the fibres are small enough they can penetrate deeply into the lungs and lead to asbestosis, Mesothelioma and lung cancer.

Asbestos Surveys

Asbestos Surveys

All non-domestic buildings need an asbestos assessment or survey. Asbestos can be found almost anywhere and sometimes in the most unlikely places: from a stately home to a factory or from your own home to a hospital. Most buildings contain asbestos in one form or another e.g. asbestos insulation, roofing sheets, floor tiles , textured ceiling coatings and more. Learn more »
