What Does Asbestos Project Management Involve?
• Desktop Services
Asbestos Project Management on behalf of clients can include EMS producing a specification and/or tender document for the asbestos removal or other works.
It can also involve escorting prospective contractors to site to allow them to provide quotations as part of the tender/contract process.
EMS are also able to assist with evaluating tender submissions alongside our clients and reviewing method statements to ensure they comply with regulations and ACoPs.
• Onsite Services
Once the project begins EMS undertake site supervisor audits to ensure work is in accordance with the method statement and approved practices.
Site Audits- this will check for compliance of aspects including site documentation and equipment is correct, maintained and matches with method statements and risk assessments. It will also ensure that site organisation is correct and ensure enclosures are built and working correctly and monitor work practices on site and are being undertaken safely in accordance with HSE guidance and ARCA audits. Site audits will also monitor the safe disposal of associated asbestos waste.
Operative Competency Audits- These involve competency audits of a single person to check they understand their job role, associated legislation and the general competency of the individual to undertake the job that they have on site.
Both Site Audits and Operative Competency Audits are undertaken while an asbestos removal or remediation project is live. They will usually be undertaken the day before a four-stage clearance test is undertaken prior to issuing a certificate of safe reoccupation.
We can assist in the management of the programme and the budget. Following completion of the works EMS compile a full report on the works. This is supplied to the client with a document containing all relevant documentation including clearance certificates and consignment notes.
EMS are also able to manage sub-contractors on a project, oversee or arrange air testing as well as client liaison and collating of relevant documents and final reports.
