When finding companies to oversee the removal of asbestos-containing materials at your property, it’s important to understand all of the project requirements.

These include not just the obvious health, safety and environmental aspects but also best use of resources and satisfaction of legal requirements.

With much to consider, you should prioritise finding a professional company to oversee your asbestos removal project. 

What do I need to do?

Assuming you’ve already had an asbestos survey completed and established that removal is required, project planning is the next step. 

According to the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), professional help is required for ‘all but the most straightforward of jobs’.

A contractor with a track record of proven proficiency in satisfying the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, is your best option for ensuring compliance. 

Be sure to select an experienced asbestos management company that can provide correct guidance on your legal obligations for your particular asbestos removal project.

What’s involved in professional asbestos management?

There are several vital steps that will be undertaken by your management company to ensure the safe and efficient removal of asbestos from any site, including:

  • Preparation

This incorporates all the important processes to take place before commencing work on site, such as confirming full project specifications.

In addition, the work requirements must be communicated clearly and in full to any prospective subcontractors during the tendering process.

We would ensure that all documents prepared by your asbestos removal company are compliant and fit for purse, for example any Health and Safety documentation. 

  • Compliance

Only when all parties potentially involved have been thoroughly vetted for their industry specific qualifications and jobs have been awarded, can work commence.

We also check for accreditations, such as ARCA and ACAD training, which demonstrates asbestos specific knowledge and expertise. This ensures that all works completed are done so to a high standard at all times. 

  • Monitoring

An experienced asbestos management business will also conduct regular site audits to ensure work is being carried out as required.

As a client, you’ll want peace-of-mind that your project is being undertaken safely, within the required high standards and on schedule. 

  • Communication

Although your budget and deadlines will likely have been agreed before work starts, it’s important to be kept up-to-date on milestones. 

Your chosen management company should be able to protect these interests in the face of any issues that arise affecting quality and safety, time and costs.

  • Assessment

Once the project has finished, you’ll require the appropriate documentation for your own records.

Any health and safety documentation relating to the works completed should be thoroughly assessed by your chosen asbestos management company to ensure all legal obligations have been met.
