What is an Asbestos Management plan?

The asbestos management plan identifies the risks posed by the asbestos present in your property and sets out procedures to control them. It is a regulatory requirement under regulation 13 of the ‘Health & Safety at Work (asbestos) Regulations 2016’, that utilizes the data accumulated from asbestos surveys to manage asbestos risk.

An asbestos management plan will typically include:

  • Policies and procedures for emergencies, refurbishments, day-to-day operations and for less usual work or tasks
  • Key asbestos information‚ usually from an asbestos survey
  • Risk assessments of each occurrence of asbestos
  • Action plan
  • Monitoring & re-inspection regimes
  • Training requirements
  • Roles & responsibilities
  • Dissemination of information
  • Duties of the Asbestos Coordinator

The arrangements within the plan should be reviewed periodically. If you are unsure of where your company stands regarding compliance, you can opt for a desktop study that will clearly identify any gaps, if they exist, and offer a step-by-step guide to compliance.

With a comprehensive understanding of your needs, we will produce a tailored asbestos management plan and implement your own policies that will help you to manage the asbestos within your premises compliantly, proportionately to the risk and in accordance with current regulations.

In addition, we offer an implementation meeting to aid the initial setup of the processes involved in the management of asbestos materials. We also offer reviews of your management plan on a six-monthly basis to ensure your on-going compliance with legislation.
