Thames Laboratories was established in 1991 with the aim of specialising in the provision of asbestos monitoring and management. Since inception the company has provided services to numerous public sector and private organisations throughout the UK and in various overseas locations. Initially the Company specialised in the provision of asbestos monitoring services working for asbestos contractors and public sector clients but now on the whole only works directly for end use clients.

Since its inception, Thames Laboratories has established a reputation as a leading consultancy in the specialised field of asbestos identification, management and monitoring. The increasing complex requirements for statutory inspections mean that we have grown our range of specialist consultancy services to include disability access audits, fire inspections (as set out in the Regulatory Reform Order (Fire) 2005), and energy audits.
At Thames Laboratories our objective is to provide our clients with the most up-to-date information available, to enable them to make correct decisions and to get it right first time. The company takes a pro-active and leading stance on many industry issues, and we are consistently chosen to be actively involved in Health and Safety Executive and RICS working groups and consultation panels. This, re-enforced by our active membership of leading industry bodies, means that our clients can always rely on the most up-to-date and accurate information and working practices.
We believe in strong and regular communication with our clients and with the industry. The Thames Laboratories Asbestos Website is widely regarded as one of the most useful sources of information out there for employers and property owners seeking specialist help and information on asbestos. Download free documentation for dealing with asbestos management and regulatory changes and to subscribe to our asbestos management newsletter. The newsletter is distributed to around 20,000 readers every month, and provides up-to-date analysis on prosecutions, enforcement and industry trends.
The scope and professionalism of our service is demonstrated by our wide range of clients, many of which are complex, blue-chip organisations with highly specialist needs. Alongside these, we provide expert support to a range of property specialists such as building surveyors, architects and planning supervisors and provide services at a local level. We have proved to be equally at home dealing with a sole practitioner or a major Antarctic construction project. Clients can track their asbestos records via our online management tool.
In an environment where quality and stability of services is important, it has always been our aim to make sure that - where external third party standards are present - Thames will endeavour to meet and exceed these standards. Thames Laboratories is proud to be UKAS Accredited for its range of asbestos services and BRE Certificated for its fire inspection services. The company is completely independent and has no commercial links to any organisation involved in asbestos or fire remediation.
