Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, Regulation 4, people who own or control a commercial building have a duty to manage any identified asbestos. An explicit Management Plan from North Star, complete with a register of all building materials including highlighted asbestos, helps achieve that objective.
As an elite consultancy, North Star Environmental undertakes asbestos management compliance audits, in addition to formulating new policies for clients where needed. If appropriate, we will review the plans and processes of your organisation, auditing them to ensure compliance with all industry regulations.
If asbestos containing materials are present in a building, management plans must be in place to monitor their condition and risks. Those responsible for the building must also supply relevant asbestos training to all people within their command likely to encounter the materials.
These issues are regulated by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). If the HSE concludes that an organisation does not comply with the aforementioned regulations, said organisation could face prosecution.
