Asbestos: The survey guide (HSG264)
The survey guide (HSG264) document sets out how to survey workplace premises for ACMs and how to record the results in a usable form. In addition, it gives advice on how to recognise and sample ACMs.
Produced by the HSE to provide guidance to those carrying out surveys, the document will also interest those who commission them. Also contains an extensive list of references for further reading.
HSG264 replaced MDHS100 in January 2010.
