Thursday 20th May 2021

In May 2021, the HSE published their second edition of HSG248 - Asbestos: The Analysts' Guide.

This guidance is for analysts involved in asbestos work. It is the authoritative source of asbestos analytical procedures within Great Britain.

The guidance has been updated to take account of findings from Health and Safety Executive (HSE) interventions and developments in analytical procedures and methodology. It provides clarification on technical and personal safety issues, especially in relation to sampling and 4-stage clearances. New information on sampling soils for asbestos is included.

The guidance is designed to assist analysts in complying with their legal obligations. The publication should also be useful to asbestos consultants, occupational hygienists, safety professionals, asbestos removal contractors, building owners and facilities managers.
