We offer advice and consultancy in the preparation of asbestos management plans to help our clients discharge their legal duties. The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 obliges dutyholders to prepare and implement a plan to manage any asbestos-containing material (ACM) located in their premises.
The duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises (such as industrial, commercial or public buildings factories, warehouses, offices, shops, hospitals and schools) falls upon those with responsibility for protecting others who work there i.e. the person or organisation that has clear responsibility for maintenance or repair. This will typically include the landlord, leaseholder, facilities manager, employer and health and safety personnel.
We advise you on your legal duties and prepare and maintain an asbestos management plan which includes the following elements:
Consultancy for dutyholders
Asbestos was used extensively as a building material in the UK prior to its ban in 1999 so if your workplace premises were built before then there is a possibility it will contain asbestos.
Our 24-page A5 booklet sets out, in layman’s terms, who is responsible for managing this potentially hazardous substance in the workplace and what those duties are. Fully illustrated, it explains where asbestos is typically found, how to identify it and provides a step-by-step set of instructions of what to do if asbestos containing material is present on your premises.
