ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT MAKES GOOD BUSINESS SENSE
If you are in a building constructed before 2000 or if you are on a brownfield site or use old equipment it is likely that there has been or could still be a risk of asbestos exposure.
Once an asbestos survey has been completed you will know:
- Whether you have Asbestos Containing Materials in your premises
- What type it is, where it is and how much there is and in what condition.
This information provides a baseline from which the risk to the building occupants can be considered. This “second stage” looks at the risk posed by the asbestos to the occupiers during their normal daily activities. Strictly speaking, this stage is the duty holder’s responsibility but ASAP Comply are able to provide guidance and support by developing a written Asbestos Management Plan particularly if the property has particular asbestos challenges.
