Once a new Asbestos Survey has been created, the details in the left pane need to be updated to reflect those of the Asbestos Survey.
The file will now appear under the ‘Attachments & Floor Plans’ heading in the Survey page. To change the file type from ‘Attachment’ to ‘Floor Plan’, click on the word ‘Attachment’ and then select ‘Floor Plan’ from the drop down options.
If you would like the attached file to be included in the report then put a tick in the box next to that particular file.
To download the file, click on the blue arrow at the end of the highlighted row
To import an attachment from an existing Survey, select the ‘Import from other Surveys’ option (blue writing), and then tick the Survey you would like to import from. Select ‘Import’ to attach the file. If there are multiple Surveys, you can use the sort option from the drop down arrow to find a Survey more easily.
Inspection points represent the different locations / items inspected during the Asbestos Survey. A new Inspection Point should be added for each location / item examined, and will identify the type of Asbestos found, if any.
You will notice that all added Inspection Points appear in the right viewing pane of the Survey page.
Inspection points are either assigned a ‘V’, an ‘S’ or an ‘
R‘ indicating whether the sample type was visual (V), actual (S), or referral (R). All visual samples should have a green tick next to them, signifying they are ready for approval. Any Inspection Points with referral samples or actual samples taken will have an orange warning triangle next to them, indicating that these samples need to be validated using an approved Certificate (see section ‘Creating a Certificate’).
After a new Survey has been created, all previous Inspection Points added to existing Surveys will be displayed in the right pane. These Inspection Points will be greyed out and their status will read ‘Not In Survey’ indicating that they have not been added to the new Survey.
To add an existing Inspection Point to the new Survey, right click on the Inspection Point and select ‘+Include Point in Survey’ or double click on it.
The details relating to the Inspection Point will appear in the left pane. Update these details by following steps 2-7 in section ‘Adding a new Inspection Point’.
Once an Inspection Point has been saved, it will appear in black and its status will read ‘Inspected’, indicating that it has now been added to the Survey.
If you add an existing Inspection Point that originally used an actual sample, the sample type will default to ‘Visual – Confirmed by previous sample’. Once added, you will notice that this Inspection Point is assigned a ‘PS’ indicating that the added Inspection Point is being validated using the previous sample.
If however, a new sample was taken at the time of inspection, change the sample type to ‘Actual sample’ and then see section ‘Creating a Certificate’ to validate the sample.
When using a Referral sample in an Inspection Point, the actual sample and the referral sample need to be matched. To match the samples:
You will now notice that the ‘R’ has changed to an ‘R’ indicating that is has been matched to an actual sample.
