Our asbestos surveyors at MDHSAsbestos Consultants Ltd are able to tailor asbestos management plans and procedures to your business’ own specifications in order to comply with current regulations.

Management Plan a Legal Duty

Are you following an effective Asbestos Management Plan in accordance with regulation 4?

As defined in the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012, all duty holders with known or presumed asbestos within their properties must have in place an effective Asbestos Management Plan. The purpose of this plan is to manage any known or presumed asbestos so that its potential danger is tightly controlled and risks kept to an absolute minimum.

Having a clearly laid out company Asbestos Policy acknowledges your responsibility to asbestos management. We recommend that the policy contains the following:

  • Introduction
  • Policy Statement
  • Compliance Strategy
  • Asbestos Records
  • Asbestos Training
  • Designated staff member for Asbestos Management

The Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations (2012) states that all duty-holders with asbestos, or presumed asbestos, present in their premises must have an Asbestos Management Plan in place. The contents of this should set out a “Duty to Manage” plan for your specific circumstances, so they can be strictly monitored and its potential danger can be kept to an absolute minimum.

A MANAGEMENT PLAN SHOULD TYPICALLY INCLUDE:

  • Asbestos Information
  • Laboratory assessments of samples
  • Action Plan
  • Time-scale for monitoring and re-inspection
  • Staff training plans where relevant
  • Staff responsibilities and duties
  • Passing of information to correct personnel
  • Duties of the designated Asbestos Controller
  • Procedures in the event of an emergency
