We have 10 fully fitted and equipped mobile laboratories enabling our qualified technicians to produce accurate results on site.

Our reports are produced electronically on custom designed software which is built and maintained in-house.



All of our qualified technicians hold British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) P403 and P404 proficiency certificates and are vastly experienced in all aspects of asbestos air monitoring & four stage clearance procedures.


Our analysts, who identify asbestos in materials (Bulk Analysis) hold P401 certificates.


Our surveyors hold P402 certificates.


None of these proficiency certificates (P Certs) make a good technician or surveyor.


What does make good technician or surveyor is the ongoing training and experience they receive in-house and externally.
