      Asbestos: an update
    • Introduction to asbestos
      • Raw asbestos …
      • Chrysotile (white)
      • Amosite (brown)
      • Crocidolite (blue)
    • Introduction to asbestos
      The wonder material:
      • High tensile strength
      • Chemical resistance
      • Fire resistance
      • Electrical insulator
      • Thermal insulator
      • Sound insulator
      and …
    • Introduction to asbestos
      Asbestos was cheap with many uses
      Added to products;
      Cement; strength, could be molded
      Plastics and resins – strength and durability
      Paints and coatings – anti sag/drip
      Insulation materials – boards, lagging, coatings
      Woven materials – fire blankets, fuse guards
      Does not rot or warp
    • Introduction to asbestos
      Used in buildings built or refurbished prior to 2000
    • Asbestos and health effects
      • Diseases caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibres:
      • Mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis
      • Risk, in all cases, comes from inhalation of fibres
      • Asbestos diseases are incurable and particularly pernicious
      • Asbestos diseases can take 15 - 60 years to develop
      • Fibres can be breathed in when asbestos is disturbed
    • Asbestos legacy
      • over 4,000 asbestos related deaths in the UK each year
      • expected to peak between 2015/2016 at around 5,000 deaths
      • those most at risk are workers in the construction and maintenance trades
    • The duty to manage
      Introduction to asbestos
      The duty to manage
      Surveyors guidance
      Training requirements
      Asbestos: an update
    • The duty to manage
      Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
      Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
      Construction Design and Management Regulations 2007
      Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006
    • The duty to manage
    • The duty to manage
      Regulation 4 – Duty to manage asbestos
      A legal requirement to have a written management plan that prevents ALL unintentional disturbance of asbestos
      Regulation 6 – Assessment of work with asbestos
      Know where your asbestos is – correct survey; Management or Refurbishment/Demo Survey
      Control access around asbestos to prevent disturbance
      Conduct a valid assessment for any task affecting the asbestos
      Regulation 10 – Information, instruction and training
      Train those in your organisation whose roles and responsibilities cause them to work on or near, or cause others to work on or near, asbestos – whether in-house or external contractors
      Awareness training for those not working on asbestos
      Non-licensed training for those working on low risk products – only those listed HSG210
    • The duty to manage
      Regulation 11 – Prevention or reduction of exposure to asbestos
      State in clear language the available information and the limitations of its use. Explain any caveats.
      Assess tasks against location of asbestos and whether any caveats/limitations in information impinge on the task. Explain what to do if any caveats exist.
      If work on or near asbestos is required, have detailed procedures on who can and who controls the work – Licensed contractors or in-house
      Regulation 16– Duty to prevent or reduce the spread of asbestos
      It is illegal to expose people unnecessarily
      It is a legal obligation to reduce exposure to the lowest level possible
    • The duty to manage
      Regulation 4: The duty to manage asbestos
      Legal requirement for a written Asbestos Management Plan
      Survey property for asbestos that could be disturbed by the tasks you perform
      List the tasks that you wish to perform
      • Assess the tasks against asbestos [and caveats/limitations]
      • Review all personnel and list those affected by asbestos. Create a training plan based on roles and responsibilities – train
      Disseminate information on asbestos to those that need to know
      • Set up system to prevent uncontrolled disturbance of asbestos – make sure it can be audited
      • Implement the plan rigorously
      • Review, monitor and audit
    • Identify
      Asbestos Containing

      Asbestos: an update
    • Asbestos: The Survey Guide
      Competence and Quality Assurance Procedures
      • training and experience required by surveyors
      • competency of the surveying organisation and the surveyor
      • quality management systems
      • HSE strongly recommends the use of UKAS accredited organisations. UKAS accreditation covers technical competence, management, integrity report production and ensures that surveyors are qualified with the right experience and knowledge and that the survey is fit for purpose.
      Surveyors guidance
    • Asbestos Surveys
      Now HSG 264
      Management Survey
      Refurbishment and Demolition Survey
      Previously MDHS 100
      Type 1, 2 and 3
      Surveyors guidance
    • Asbestos Surveys
      • Management Survey - used for the purposes of managing asbestos within properties during normal occupation and maintenance
      • involves minor intrusive work and some disturbance. Samples are taken of all suspicious materials following the guidance within HSG264
      • Management surveys are designed to identify all asbestos that may be disturbed during normal occupation and normal maintenance activities. As a result access is required to EVERY area accessed during maintenance and normal occupation – ceiling voids, lift shafts, lift motor room, service ducts etc
      Surveyors guidance
    • Asbestos Surveys – Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys
      Refurbishment Survey – the scope of a refurbishment survey is the entire area, and all materials within such area, that will be disturbed or form part of the refurbishment process. Nothing should be excluded from this remit.
      Demolition Survey –The scope of a demolition survey is the entire building. This includes wall cavities, voids, screeds etc. Limitations and caveats usually render the survey unsuitable for purpose
      Surveyors guidance
    • Scope of Works / Site Visit
      Survey Plan
      CheckSurvey Plan against Scope
      Commission Survey
      Undertake Survey
      Report Issue
      Check Report against Scope
      Surveyors guidance
    • Domestic Premises
      • Specifically targeted at Local Authorities and Housing Associations managing large numbers of domestic properties
      • Undertake a desktop study. Identify probable asbestos within groups of properties and detail the requirement for management surveys and refurbishment surveys to comply with management plan
      • The requirement to protect employs and contractors does not stop when they enter a domestic property. If an employee or contractor is sent to a domestic property to conduct work they MUST be trained to recognise and deal with asbestos they come across or an assessment MUST be conducted showing that it is safe for them to proceed.
      Surveyors guidance
    • Scoping & Commissioning
      Surveyors guidance
    • Caveats andlimitations
      • Survey restrictions and caveats can seriously undermine the management of asbestos
      • Should only be included where absolutely necessary and MUST be agreed in writing before survey is commenced
      • Most can be avoided by proper planning and discussion
      • The restrictions any caveats or limitations create should be clearly documented in the report
      Surveyors guidance
    • Review and Interpretation of survey reports

      • Training for those not working on asbestos
      Training for non-licensable asbestos work
      • Training for work with lower risk materials HSG210
      Training for licensable work with asbestos
      • Training for work with higher risk materials – requiring an HSE License
      Training requirements

      Refresher training should be given at least every year and should be appropriate to the role undertaken. It should not be a repeat of the initial training.
      Training requirements
      • MANAGE ASBESTOS – Raise Awareness
      • Asbestos Management Plan
