Asbestos Knowledge Base

It is likely that almost all employees will require some training. At this stage it may comprise a general awareness of asbestos and where it can be found on the premises together with the sort of training being delivered today about what the new law requires.

Later on in the process, training of maintenance personnel in how to work safely with asbestos, as well as training those who will be charged with monitoring ACMs left in place will be needed. Works procedures may have to change to take into account the asbestos management programme, and there will be disruptions to normal work activities if repair or removal work is identified as a necessary management option. The management of a budget or securing the necessary funds to allow the management plan to function will play a fundamental role in the success or failure of the project. This should be addressed as part of the written plan.
