» Asbestos: The Analysts’ Guide 2016 HSG248 Consultation

14 October, 2015

HSG248 is a revised version of the Analysts Guide first published in 2005. It contains guidance for Analysts involved in asbestos work and is the authoritative source of analytical procedures. The guide has been updated to take account of changes in legislation, developments in analytical procedures and methodology, provide clarification on technical and personal safety issues and to consolidate guidance from a number of HSE sources. The document also introduces new guidance on asbestos in soils in response to industry requests.

A copy of the draft is available from the HSE website.
