Development of Asbestos Management Plans
It is a common misconception that an asbestos report is all that is needed to comply with regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 – known as the Duty to Manage Regulation. Not only must you identify the presence of asbestos, you are legally obligated to manage the asbestos that is identified.
The easiest way to comply with the regulation is to commission an asbestos management plan of the premises. These documents are an essential tool to ensure that building occupants and tradesmen are protected from accidental exposure to asbestos and that asbestos left in-situ is monitored on a regular basis. Using a combination of asbestos survey reports, bulk sample analysis, building construction information and even information regarding previous asbestos removal operations, we produce site specific management plans.
Development of company systems and procedures for managing Asbestos
Training is not the only requirement which enables you to undertake the removal of asbestos, you need to comply with the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. Whether you are a Licensed Asbestos Removal Contractor or a Non-Licensed Contractor, in order to do this you need a comprehensive management system in place to ensure that you are compliant with the legislation.
What we offer is a management system created specifically for your company – it includes EVERYTHING you need to comply with the regulations fully. It will not be complicated, but it will include all aspects that you need to ensure you are fully compliant with the law.
Asbestos Training, CPD and awareness workshops
Asbestos awareness training should be given to employees whose work could foreseeably disturb the fabric of a building and expose them to asbestos.
During the training session, attendees will learn about asbestos and its history, where it can be found in buildings, health implications, legislation and emergency procedures. Armed with this information, it places then in a position where their knowledge can significantly reduce the chances of themselves or building occupants being exposed to asbestos.
Our training is provided by experienced personnel who have extensive knowledge of the asbestos industry – this is the best kind of person to deliver such training.
On-site Compliance Audits
We deliver a client-by-client approach to site audits, as each client is different and operate in their own way. We randomly select jobs in conjunctions with our clients, which in all honestly, gives the client a true indication of how their company is performing instead of relying on pre-determined site visits.
We don’t only look at the asbestos issues, but we also assess all health and safety risks, external factors, management systems on site, emergency procedures and the personnel themselves.
The information we provide is a lot more than a ‘tick sheet’ and gives the client REAL information that they can use in the continual improvement of their operation. These audits are not only related to notifiable projects, but can be tailored to non-notifiable projects as well and can be undertaken in line with your existing management systems.
