Expert knowledge

We are experts in all matters relating to asbestos safety, compliance and removal.

Surveying and Sampling

WeldLag undertakes asbestos surveys and presents your reports in accordance with HSE guidelines. From the original MDHS (Methods for the Determination of Hazardous Substances) 100 guidance [is this now defunct?] note to HSG264, the guide for surveying, sampling and assessment of asbestos-containing materials, we cover all bases to ensure you are following best practice.

Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, we look closely at your responsibilities for competence, quality assurance and surveys, including: survey planning and implementation, the survey report and the duty holder’s use of survey information.

Experienced WeldLag surveyors are trained to a minimum of British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) P402: Building Surveys and Bulk Sampling for Asbestos.

Preparation of survey reports

Undertaking an asbestos survey will help you plan for the management of any asbestos in your premises. Survey reports from WeldLag give you accurate information about the amount and type of asbestos containing materials, and where they are on your premises.

Confirmation as to whether any samples taken during surveys contain asbestos or not is independently provided by an UKAS Accredited Laboratory.
Our asbestos survey reports are designed to be user friendly and include:

  • Identification of asbestos materials in the building, its location and condition
  • Risk algorithms assessing the risk of any asbestos found
  • Recommendations for the control of such risks
  • Formulation of an ongoing asbestos management plan
  • Provision of information for other users such as building contractors and maintenance personnel.

Management plans

Where asbestos is identified, it can either be encapsulated and managed, or safely removed and disposed of in full compliance with current, relevant health and safety and asbestos regulations.

We will help you devise an appropriate timetable and action plan which is specific to your circumstances. This will allow both you and the WeldLag team to monitor the condition of identified asbestos and to review and update the management plan for its safe disposal.

Removal and Disposal

The WeldLag team has over 30 years of experience of safely organising the removal and disposal of asbestos materials and waste.

As well as building materials, asbestos waste can include contaminated tools, protective equipment and other items exposed in the vicinity, so it’s important to get every step in the process right.


Asbestos encapsulation involves covering asbestos with high performance protective coatings to minimise the risk of fibre release.

If asbestos is deemed to be in good condition or is inaccessible under HSE regulations, encapsulation is often the preferred option as it may actually reduce health risks and can be better for the environment.

At WeldLag, we have encapsulation specialists who will ensure that any materials are kept in a highly controlled manner, safely insulated and air tight.

Waste management

WeldLag will organise the process from start to finish on your behalf, ensuring waste is placed in suitable packaging in line with compliance regulations, is clearly marked with the relevant warnings and has the appropriate code information visible.

We will then have it removed from the site in a sealed vehicle and transported to a licensed disposal site by a registered waste carrier.

Specialist advice

Our specialist advisory services and consultancy has proved invaluable to our clients time and time again, which is why we have established long standing relationships with them over many years.

We can help you comply with your duties under Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 Approved Code of Practice and guidance to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises.

We will explain and help you understand your obligations and the duties of building owners, tenants and anyone else with legal responsibilities for such premises.
