I have been asked to develop a strategy for compliance with asbestos legislative requirements across our property portfolio in relation to surveying. Could you outline the approach to developing a strategy and how I can prioritise the necessary actions in a large portfolio?
Our organisation is having some asbestos-containing materials removed, which requires scaffolding to be erected. It has been suggested that the scaffold company should be licensed to undertake this work. Is this necessary?
Some waste asbestos recently came to light at our premises and we have arranged for a firm of waste contractors to remove it. Are there any additional safety or environmental regulations that apply to asbestos disposal, alongside the requirement to register as a waste carrier?
I am aware of the need to manage asbestos-containing materials and we have procedures in place to do this. However, if there is any form of exposure to asbestos fibres, do we have to report this under RIDDOR?
We are taking on a job to demolish a building that contains an asbestos-containing material (ACM) in the form of a textured decorative coating. I assume we are required to remove this material before demolition takes place?
