Working for BDA Surveying Ltd

BDA Surveying Ltd are an established independent asbestos consultant, offering asbestos surveying and asbestos analytical services to companies and institutions throughout the UK.

Asbestos was commonly used throughout the 21st century as a building material. It was banned from use in the UK in 1999 after it was discovered to cause serious health conditions. Despite this, around 5,000 people are thought to die each year from diseases related to asbestos exposure. Asbestos air testing is an activity where a known volume of air is drawn through a filter over a measured period. During this time, airborne particles are collected on the filter which is then prepared for examination under a microscope

As a trainee asbestos site analyst, you’ll have the opportunity to learn all about asbestos air testing and all that it entails on site at a wide variety of corporate and domestic premises.


What it’s like being an asbestos Site analyst

Working with clients onsite at their premises you’ll spend time working within our team of analysts to ensure that works are completed to our client’s requirements. You’ll be supported and guided, learning on the job, by a team of experienced analysts to gain official qualifications that’ll boost your career. 

During your Apprenticeship you will have a fantastic opportunity to learn what it means to be an Asbestos Analyst so all we ask is that you have a keen interest in science, and are happy to travel to customers sites, so a driving license and access to a car is essential.
