Fibre
Counting

Independent verification to ensure that the highest possible standards are met.

As a requirement of CAR 2012 it is essential that any Company carrying out any air testing or fibre counting involving asbestos will need to be accredited to ISO 17025 by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).  EML is accredited to this standard to cover all aspects of asbestos in air monitoring and includes:

  • Smoke Testing
  • Leakage monitoring
  • Personal air monitoring
  • Background/Occupational monitoring
  • Reassurance air monitoring
  • Four stage clearance procedures including issuing a Certificate of Reoccupation (COR).
  • Hygiene Unit Clearance

Air monitoring is a legal requirement following any removal of licensable asbestos materials and prior to any reoccupation of a building.

EML will offer independent verification to ensure that the high standards demanded by the HSE and the accredited body UKAS are adhered to and only after a thorough visual examination of the area within the enclosure has been completed to the satisfaction of the analyst, will disturbed air testing take place to ensure compliance within the clearance indicator level.

Our unparalleled knowledge and expertise ensures peace of mind on every project.

Over the years EML have become regularly involved with asbestos removal projects and our experience and knowledge places us in a strong position to provide independent advice when choosing suitable contractors.

Our work can involve the inspection of tenders to examine plan of works, method statements and any other relevant information in order to offer the client the best advice on the way forward.

We provide a UKAS accredited air monitoring analytical service during and on completion of the removal process. All our experienced consultant analysts are certified to the required BOHS competence standards for the work being undertaken thus giving the client confidence that our standards of work meet the high standards required by both UKAS and the HSE.
