5 Steps to Asbestos Management
At David Jameson Roofing Service Asbestos Division we know how confusing it can be to understand the new regulation regarding asbestos, selecting a competent surveying organization, creating a management report and if necessary selecting a competent asbestos removal contractor. This is why we have developed our 5 step plan to solve this dilemma for our clients.
The 5 steps are:-
1. Commission an Asbestos Survey
At David Jameson Roofing Service Asbestos Division we are fully qualified and insured to conduct Management, Refurbishment & Demolition Surveys. We have a trained asbestos surveying team (P402 Qualified) and management team (P405 Qualified), which are dedicated to ensuring the client, receives a detailed report showing any asbestos detected. We provide a professional and discreet service.
2. Receive your Asbestos Report
After we have conducted the survey on your premises we then create a detailed report, which you will receive not only a hard copy but also on CD-Rom. Each report has details of how the survey was conducted, when it was conducted, the areas surveyed, and samples taken for analysis, it also includes the asbestos identification form from the UKAS Accredited Laboratory and a section on what recommendations should be taken. Our CD-Rom has proven a big hit with organizations as it allows them to store and transfer the information to all relevant parties. This is a key tool to insure that the management of asbestos is enforced on your premises.
3. Receive your Asbestos Register
With your Asbestos Survey Report you will also receive an Asbestos Register. This register shows you each room in the building and the asbestos content, which is in each room. It shows the type of asbestos, the quantity of it and the risk posed from it. Attached with the register are digital photographs of the areas sampled.
4. Creating an Asbestos Management Plan
After you have received your asbestos register you then have to create an Asbestos Management Plan detailing how and when you are going to manage the asbestos e.g. remove the asbestos, encapsulate the asbestos etc. However, don’t let this daunt you as at David Jameson Roofing Service Asbestos Division we will create an Asbestos Management Plan with you to ensure that you are selecting the correct methods of treatment and that the areas are prioritized correctly.
This Asbestos Management Plan looks at what actions can be introduced to limit the exposure of asbestos. It gives information how it affects you, options for management to use to control the risk from asbestos including flow charts to show what to do in emergencies, etc.
5. Asbestos Management/Removal
After you have completed the above 4 steps you will then have the knowledge and confidence to use the correct methods to manage your asbestos. You will have a number of options available to use, for example, you can remove the asbestos, which will leave that area completely free from asbestos, which solves the problem. If this does not suit due to cost, time restraints then you can treat or encapsulate the asbestos to make it safe – however, this is a short term solution as after time the asbestos will have to be removed if it is continually being disturbed.
At David Jameson Roofing Service Asbestos Division we are fully insured and Licensed by the HSE (NI) to treat and handle asbestos. We also have our waste handling license that allows us to transport waste to the EU selected asbestos landfill dumps. Leaving the client with the complete asbestos package.
