aims and objectives of the event
Aims and objectives of the event
  • Aim: to provide detailed information and guidance about the duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises. The duty is regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2002.
  • Objectives: to discuss hazards, outline the law, to work through the steps needed to comply, to use practical exercises, to discuss implementation, to provide information on further sources of guidance.

  • Session 1: Welcome and introduction

SETTING THE SCENE

  • Session 2: Asbestos facts
  • Session 3: The duty to manage

CARRYING OUT THE WORK

  • Session 4: How to develop a management plan (including practical exercises)
  • Session 5: Summary and implementation programme
session 2 asbestos facts
Session 2: Asbestos facts
  • Aim: to provide background information on the hazards from asbestos, the diseases which can result from exposure to it, and how the law has addressed this hazard.
  • Objectives: by end of session delegates should know what asbestos is and its uses, know why it is harmful and what diseases it can cause, know what processes release fibres, understand how the law has been applied to the risks from asbestos and understand how the duty to manage fits in.

Asbestos facts

What is asbestos?

Why is asbestos dangerous?

Where might you find asbestos?

where asbestos is found
Where asbestos is found
  • Boiler vessels and pipework
  • Ceilings
  • Cladding to columns
  • Domestic appliances
  • Flooring material
  • Interior walls and panels
  • Lining to lift doors
  • Roof and exterior walls
  • Service risers
  • etc.
other products
Other products
  • Millboard and paper products for electrical insulation.
  • Composite materials, eg brake linings (in the past) and vinyl floor tiles.
  • Decorative textured coatings.
asbestos facts14
Asbestos facts

Who is at risk?

How can asbestos fibres be released into the air?

how can we stop the possibility of ill health
How can we stop the possibility of ill health?

By reducing the exposure of people to airborne respirable asbestos fibres.

session 3 the duty to manage
Session 3: The duty to manage
  • Aim: to examine the requirements of regulation 4 and identify dutyholders.
  • Objectives: by the end of the session delegates will understand the duty to manage, know who is likely to have duties under it, what premises are covered and have an outline of what dutyholders will have to do.

Why is the regulation needed and what does it say?

What types of premises are covered by the regulation?

Once the dutyholder has been identified, what will they have to do?

duty holders will have to
Duty holders will have to:
  • Find out if there is asbestos, how much, its condition and where.
  • Presume unknown materials are ACMs.
  • Make and keep an up-to-date record of the location and condition of ACMs/presumed ACMs.
  • Assess the risks from ACMs.
  • Prepare a management plan.
  • Implement the plan.
  • Monitor and review the plan.
  • Provide information on the location and condition of the ACMs.
session 4 steps to develop a management plan
Session 4: Steps to develop a management plan
  • Aim: to look in detail at how a management plan can be developed.
  • Objectives: by the end of the session delegates will be able to decide how to approach the planning of the process, understand the logical steps required to comply, complete practical exercises, understand how an effective management plan can be prepared and why it is needed.
session 4 introduction
Session 4: Introduction
  • Duty is to manage asbestos.
  • The regulation is proportionate to risk and only requires work and expenditure where the risk justifies it.
  • The regulation can be broken down into a simple step-by-step approach.
  • Useful start: ask ‘What am I doing now to manage the risk?’
  • Aim is to protect anyone who could come into contact with asbestos unknowingly.

Steps to develop a management plan

What effect will the management plan have on the health of workers in premises where ACMs may be present?

steps to develop a management plan30
Steps to develop a management plan

First steps

  • Take a precautionary approach to maintenance now.
  • Early planning is vital, will help save time and money later.
  • Who is going to manage and pay for the process?
  • Training, consultation with employees.
steps to develop a management plan step a
Steps to develop a management plan: Step A

Find out if asbestos is present, how much there is and in what condition.

steps to develop a management plan step a32
Steps to develop a management plan: Step A

Is asbestos likely to be present?

  • Dutyholder needs to take reasonable steps to identify any asbestos.
  • Start with a desktop survey
    • Looking at architects’ plans, invoices for renovation work, consult long-standing employees etc.
  • A good desktop survey will not only assess for ACMs, but help focus future assessment.
steps to develop a management plan step a33
Steps to develop a management plan: Step A

Identifying asbestos

  • With strong evidence it is possible to rule out the presence of asbestos.
  • A presumptive walkthrough inspection - assuming any unknown material is asbestos.
  • Take samples of unknown materials, and analyse them.
  • A combination of the above.
steps to develop a management plan step a34
Steps to develop a management plan: Step A

Decide who will carry out the inspection or survey.

Consider training and competency issues.

Steps to develop a management plan: Step A

Prepare for the inspection or survey.

Carry out the inspection or survey.

case studies exercise a
Case studies: Exercise A
  • Assume you are at desktop survey stage on looking for ACMs.
  • Using information from Appendix 4 and the blank table from Appendix 3, record:
    • where ACMs are likely to be found;
    • what type of asbestos is likely;
    • any comments on condition.
steps to develop a management plan step b
Steps to develop a management plan: Step B

Make and keep an up-to-date record of the location and condition of the ACMs/presumed ACMs.

steps to develop a management plan step c
Steps to develop a management plan: Step C

Assess the risks from asbestos-containing materials.

steps to develop a management plan step c40
Steps to develop a management plan: Step C

The material assessment.

(NB asbestos is only harmful if fibres are released into an area where they can be inhaled.)

steps to develop a management plan step c41
Steps to develop a management plan: Step C

The material assessment

quantifies the hazard from the materials, ie how likely are they to release airborne fibres if disturbed.

steps to develop a management plan step c43
Steps to develop a management plan: Step C

The risk assessment

introduces other elements to give an estimate of comparative risk.

case studies exercise b
Case studies: Exercise B
  • Assess the risks from ACMs in the workplaces already described using the method outlined previously.
  • First carry out a material assessment on up to three ACMs.
  • Next, using the algorithm, carry out a risk assessment.
  • Which ACM would you deal with first?
steps to develop a management plan step d
Steps to develop a management plan: Step D

Prepare a plan of how to manage the risk.

Steps to develop a management plan: Step E

Implement the plan and carry out any work needed.

Steps to develop a management plan: Step F

Provide information on the location and condition of ACMs.

Steps to develop a management plan: Step G

Monitor and review the plan and arrangements.

session 5 summary
Session 5: Summary
  • Aim: to summarise the requirements of the duty, emphasise the key messages from the course, and briefly outline HSE’s enforcement.
  • Objectives: to reinforce the framework of the new duty, to remind delegates of the key messages from the course, and signpost where to find out more.
key messages
Key messages
  • 3000 people die each year as a result of past exposure to asbestos.
  • 25% of those have worked in the maintenance and building trades.
  • If asbestos is in a good condition and unlikely to be disturbed – leave it in place.
  • The regulation is not a duty to survey.
  • The regulation is proportionate and only requires significant work when the risk justifies it.
