asbestos survey is not the end of the line
for the dutyholder, it is just the starting point.
Once an asbestos survey has been completed the
dutyholder has two choices;
the asbestos (complying with CAR 2012) or
the asbestos materials. The starting point of the
management process is ensuring all asbestos materials
are safe, sealed and clearly labelled. Under the CAR
2012 regulations any asbestos materials must be managed
within a ‘management system’. It is not sufficient to
have a survey, stick a label on and then hope to tell
people about it if you see them!
The management system should be clearly defined
(written); it should be relevant to the building and
particularly the organisation within the building. The
location and condition of any asbestos containing
materials should be logged on an
asbestos register (which should already be within
the Management Asbestos Survey). The dutyholder has the
responsibility of the management of the asbestos in the
building (this person may require appropriate training).
As part of an asbestos management system a Permit to
Work system is the best way to stop damage to asbestos
containing materials. If implemented properly, this will
help to protect an organisation and individuals from
Any ‘asbestos management system’ should be regularly
reviewed and revised in relation to the occupancy/change
of use of the building.
