A safety alert statement has been issued by the HSA on the management of asbestos-containing materials on demolition and refurbishment sites.
The statement indicates that recent engagement with a number of sites showed evidence of poor practices and a lack of understanding of the risk management required when handling asbestos-containing materials.
This evidence lead to prohibition notices, substantial clean-up costs and significant delays with projects are some of the enforcement actions noted by the Authority.
Duty holders, including clients, PSDP’s, PSDS’s and designers, must ensure that asbestos-containing materials are identified and dealt with and refurbishment demolition asbestos survey’s must be completed in advance of work commencing note the Authority.
