Air Monitoring Services

We are able to provide independent analytical air monitoring and four stage clearance validation services for asbestos removal works.

We independently design and monitor asbestos removal operations to ensure that works are carried out to the highest standards and operating in line with regulatory requirements.

A full range of asbestos air testing services that can be performed on site, including:

  • Reassurance air testing
  • Leak air testing
  • Background air testing
  • Personal air monitoring
  • Four Stage Clearance / Site Reoccupation Certification

All air sampling performed by TRAC are UKAS accredited which ensures conformity to ISo/IEC17025:2017 and are carried out in accordance with HSE guidance including HSG248 Asbestos: The analysts’ guide for sampling, analysis and clearance procedures and in-house procedures.

Air monitoring paperwork and certification are completed using handheld tablets and printed from the mobile laboratory therefore copies can be left on site for both the building manager and the contractor if required. Additional copies are provided to our clients through our in-house Asbestos Management Portal.

In addition, we have a dedicated analytical team offering a fast response service, 24 hours a day, all year round.
