For asbestos removal and remediation projects, an independent asbestos analyst should be employed to conduct a thorough clearance inspection of the site. This is to check that control measures are effective, asbestos materials have been managed accordingly (removed / encapsulated / repaired), and method statements have been followed. There is also a legal requirement for asbestos analysts to undertake formal training in their role, as outlined in CAR 2012 Regulation 10, and HSG248: Asbestos: The Analysts’ Guide for Surveying, Sampling and Analysis. The P404 qualification is the industry standard for asbestos site analysts. It gives you the skills and knowledge required to thoroughly and safely undertake air monitoring and the four stages of the clearance process. It also teaches you how to identify any outstanding asbestos risk on the site, and how to issue a certificate for reoccupation when you are satisfied the site is safe to re-occupy.
