Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published a revised 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 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.
