Course Details

BOHS P402The BOHS P402 course is a requirement for all survey staff in UKAS accredited survey companies and is the recognised industry standard for all asbestos surveyors.

The course provides background and practical knowledge in the surveying of buildings for asbestos and to provide general guidance on management procedures necessary to minimise exposure to any identified asbestos.

A two-day course with a further day of written and practical examinations. A successful completion of the examinations and the subsequent survey reports will lead to a: ‘Proficiency Certificate’ in Building Surveys and Bulk Sampling for Asbestos.

Candidates for this course are expected to be aware of the contents of HSG 264 (Asbestos: The Survey Guide) and have a minimum of six months prior experience of carrying out asbestos surveys.

Practical Assessment:

  • Slide/video/photographic assessment procedure for identifying the presence of asbestos in different locations which must include a variety of asbestos products, confirm basic understanding of buildings and structures and use of material and priority assessments
