LK Group achieves UKAS Accreditation to Asbestos HSG 264 to further raise industry standing

Manchester environmental consultancy the LK Group has become one of the first companies to achieve UKAS accreditation to the new HSE standard for asbestos surveying.

The group has bucked the current cost-cutting trend by significantly investing time and money to achieve accreditation to a standard that will provide clients with an even greater level of confidence in its asbestos surveying capabilities.

The recently published HSG 264 Asbestos: The Survey Guide replaces the existing MDHS100 and highly competent surveyors who have been accredited by UKAS to this new standard are now being strongly recommended by the HSE.

Director in charge of asbestos services, Clair Leyden said: “We are delighted with our recent accreditation to HSG 264 and I would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work over recent months.”

She added: “Our clients place a great deal of trust in us to provide this essential service safely and efficiently. We believe that this accreditation demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that quality is at the forefront of every survey we undertake.”

The LK Group is a specialist, multidisciplinary consultancy with capabilities in asbestos, geo-environmental and building compliance. It also has a specialist contracting entity dedicated to land remediation and the treatment of Japanese Knotweed.
