When is an Asbestos Management Plan required?
Looking to keep your workplace safe and compliant with regulations? Look no further than the Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016. As the regulations state, anyone in charge of a building or workplace must have an asbestos management plan in place.
A typical Asbestos Management Plan
Fortunately, creating an asbestos management plan is a straightforward process that starts with a comprehensive management survey. Once the survey is complete, you’ll be able to create a plan that includes all the essential elements. This includes identifying and locating any confirmed or presumed asbestos, creating an asbestos register, and detailing how asbestos will be managed within your workplace.
In addition, your plan will also include schedules for ongoing asbestos works, such as encapsulation, removal, and review. And, of course, regular monitoring is critical to ensuring ongoing safety, so your plan will also specify agreed schedules for ongoing asbestos monitoring
