The asbestos reports made available here relate to buildings under the control of the University of Brighton that are known to contain asbestos containing materials (ACM).
Typically, these are buildings constructed and refurbished before year 2000. After year 2000 asbestos containing materials were generally known to no longer be available on the market in the United Kingdom.
However, any person undertaking construction or maintenance activities on our premises is expected to have completed an asbestos awareness training course and be able to identify those materials that are likely to contain asbestos.
In all circumstances if material is suspected to contain asbestos then its true nature must be ascertained. All ACM can only be worked on or removed with the consent of the Asbestos Manager.
The Contractor Asbestos Reports are primarily based on Management Surveys compliant with current guidance issued by the Health and Safety Executive.
In some circumstances the results of Refurbishment / Demolition Surveys have been included as there is a strong presumption that materials identified in these surveys are present in similar parts of the building.
In all circumstances a Refurbishment / Demolition Survey must be considered before any refurbishment of a building takes place or changes are made that are likely to affect the fabric of building. The Asbestos Manager must be consulted.
Should any party have any query regarding these reports or in regard to asbestos on the university’s premises then please contact the Asbestos Manager, Edwin Underwood.
