Asbestos Deterioration Review
What is it and why is it required?
The Control of AsbestosAsbestos is the single greatest cause of work-related deaths in the UK1. Asbestos was extensively used in construction materials up until the late 1990s, and is present in a significant number of bu... Regulations (CAR), which were last updated in April 2012, in order to fully implement EU Directive 2009/148/EC, require employers and/or persons in control of premises to identify asbestos containing materials (ACMs) within the workplace and implement suitable and sufficient management controls. There is a specific requirement within the CAR to undertake a review of ACMs on-site at periodic intervals and update the relevant risk assessment accordingly.
What are the benefits?
Completing an Asbestos Deterioration Review ensures compliance with the CAR 2012, and provides documentation of any material change, in order to keep the asbestos register up-to-date.
Undertaking correct identification and management of asbestos risks ensures protection of the health & safety of all personnel on site.
How can the S2 Partnership help?
One of our experienced and highly-qualified asbestos consultants will undertake a site inspection to assess the present condition of asbestos containing materials (ACMs) identified in earlier surveys. If any areas were excluded from earlier surveys, these can be surveyed and sampled to HSG264 standards. The review will also include an update of the material risk assessment, drawing up amended documentation and making recommendations for further remedial action, where necessary.
