Surveying Asbestos Properly
In 2015 the Health & Safety Executive prosecuted a company for failing to identify asbestos before construction works in a college.
The incident occurred when workers had been cutting channels in the floor. An straight forward task that in this case led to the discovery of asbestos containing material (ACM). This led to major clean up costs and students, staff and the contractors were exposed to carcinogenic asbestos.
Surveying Lessons Learned
The design company in charge of the asbestos surveying at the college had not properly surveyed the building for asbestos. The sub contractors were taken by surprise when they had cut into the asbestos in the floors. It was too late to take any precautions or preventative measures.
The company was fined £22, 400 along with another £11, 741 in costs. read the full Newsletter article here.
Checking for Asbestos During Refurbishment
Here in Northern Ireland many companies “take a quick look” for any evidence of asbestos before refurbishment works begin. They then rely on the contractors experience to spot any asbestos during the work. This is not adequate. By law you must have a full survey carried out before any work begins and you must wait until you receive your asbestos survey report before allowing work to begin.
