4 1. INTRODUCTION Asbestos Procedure and Code of Practice The Estates Department, in conjunction with the Health and Safety Manager, is concerned to take appropriate precautions to ensure the health and safety of staff and others who may be affected by risks associated with asbestos present in some building structures and plant or other machinery upon the Trust s estate. Consequently a system of survey, encapsulation and removal has been put in place and covered the Asbestos Management Plan. Strict safety protocols have been laid out, which must be adhered to, by those working with or likely to disturb asbestos products, be they Trust staff or Contractors. These systems and safety protocols form part of this policy and code of practice thus ensuring that any risk to the health of employees working within buildings that contain asbestos building products or plant components, or working directly with such asbestos products or components, is reduced to the lowest level reasonably practicable. This Procedure and the attendant Codes of Practice have been drawn up in accordance with the latest Regulations, Approved Codes of Practice and Guidance, on asbestos, from the Health and Safety Executive and will be reviewed and updated in the light of any future changes to these Regulations, Approved Codes of Practice or Guidance. A register of surveys carried out to identify asbestos will be maintained and updated annually by the Estates Department and in accordance with the Asbestos Management Surveys requirements each property will have a detailed Asbestos Report and supporting Risk Assessment. Current Guidance advises that immediate removal of all asbestos containing material is not necessarily the best option. Where asbestos is in good condition, not likely to release fibres into the air and not in a position where it is likely to be damaged by normal building use, it is best sealed or covered and its presence noted by labelling and/or entry on a register. This Trust intends to follow such Guidance by removal, at the earliest opportunity, any asbestos building materials or components that are identified as being in poor condition whereby fibres may be released into the air or where the normal work practices of the building users are likely to damage such asbestos materials, whereby fibres may be released into the air. Where asbestos materials are in good condition and fibres are not likely to be released into the air such asbestos materials will be sealed and /or encapsulated and labelled as asbestos materials save when such labelling may cause undue concern to other building users e.g. members of the public. Contractors/in-house maintenance staff will be fully informed of any known or suspected asbestos material in the vicinity prior to carrying out any work which may result in damage/fibre release. If there is any doubt as to the composition of materials uncovered during building works, or prior to works commencing, a sample will be removed only by an approved/competent person and sent to a suitably accredited laboratory for analysis before work proceeds, It is the intention of the Trust to ensure effective implementation of the aforementioned statements and to keep them under consideration in all aspects of health practice and decision making. 4

Asbestos has been used for many years in building materials and certain equipment and a considerable volume of information and advice on asbestos is available (see references). The purpose of this policy is to give general advice on the precautions that should be taken with asbestos. When planning work on asbestos reference must be made to the specific guidance available within the Regulations, Codes of Practice, H.S.E Publications, etc 7

8 Regulation/Recommendation The Health and Safety Executive publication Control of Asbestos at Work Regulation 2012 (CAWR) and Approved Code of Practices (ACoPs) and in accordance with HSG 264. The aim is to promote good practice and ensure the duty to manage asbestos, advises that owners/occupiers of buildings have properties surveyed for the presence of asbestos. Any asbestos materials identified should be duly labelled and managed as part of a risk register. Trust Procedure All buildings, subways, plant rooms, plant and equipment that are owned by the Trust must be surveyed for asbestos. Trust employees or its approved contractor who may carry out work on non-trust premises or on equipment not owned by the Trust should be aware of the hazards presented by the presence of asbestos. Where asbestos is suspected of being present the employee or approved contractor must seek advice before continuing work. Where identified, on Trust premises, asbestos shall be labelled ASBESTOS - REPORT ANY DAMAGE and clearly identified on the survey plans for the site. Wherever damaged asbestos is found it shall either be sealed, removed by a specialist asbestos contractor or the area itself sealed off and appropriate RESTRICTION OF ACCESS notices posted. Safe systems of work implemented for entry into these areas. Appropriate signs which conform to Safety Signs and Signals Regulations are required. Regulation/Recommendation The regulation introduces a duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises. Persons with repair and maintenance responsibilities for the premises will need to ensure that asbestoscontaining material (ACM) within those premises are properly managed, and that information about the location and condition of the materials is passed on to those likely to disturb them. Trust Procedure cont d Asbestos will be removed when there is planned refurbishment of a building/equipment or whenever planned maintenance or repair is to be carried out and must be conducted by an approved contractor. Asbestos may also be removed from the site on a programmed basis developed by the Head of Estates & Facilities, the programme to be updated on an annual basis. The criteria for programmed removal will depend upon: 1. Known future capital developments 2. Locations of plant needing regular access for maintenance Areas, which for whatever reason cannot remain sealed from access by personnel Other reasons from time to time identified by the Estates and Facilities Manager Advice received from the Health and Safety Manager that asbestos is damaged and requires approval Any contractor intending to undertake work with any asbestos must comply with the Control of Asbestos Regulations To comply with the European Asbestos Worker Protection Directive the process for removing ACM's has been altered within CAR As such ALL work with asbestos is notifiable to the Health & Safety and is classed as either: 1. NNLW - Notifiable Non-Licensed Work or: 2. NLW - Notifiable Licensed Work 8

9 All Asbestos Works which are identified as required whether through planned works or reactive response; will be channelled through the Designated Officer to the appointed Asbestos Consultant for review and referral to tender/pricing. As part of this process, all works will have a job specific scope of works produced by the asbestos consultant for obtaining prices for removal. Where the cost of removal would require tenders to be sought in line with the Trusts Standing Financial instructions, the appointed asbestos consultant will produce a detailed asbestos tender specification in line with the terms of the consultant s appointment. All sealed tenders will be instructed to be returned direct to the trust procurement team. 4. EMERGENCY REPAIR/WORK Whenever an Emergency Repair is required on plant or equipment containing asbestos, immediate advice must be sought from a Responsible Officer who may seek advice from a specialist contractor or the H.S.E as to precautions that can be taken. The following precautions must be carried out as a minimum (and in any event). 1. Limit the number of persons in the area to the bare minimum 2. Limit the damage to any asbestos 3. Where disturbance to asbestos will occur take precautions to limit its spread wherever possible by placing appropriate coverings on the floor and by wetting the asbestos to reduce fibre release. All work with asbestos should not extend beyond a 1 hour time period. 4. All personnel in the area are to wear white disposable hooded overalls and an H.S.E approved disposable face mask (both available from the Facilities Stores). 5. On completion of the emergency work and where applicable the floor covering shall be folded to limit the spread of asbestos. Disposable overalls shall be removed and placed in a black plastic bag. Finally disposable masks should be removed and placed in the bag. The bag must be tied off at the neck and labelled DANGER ASBESTOS. The bags may then be left at the site of emergency work. 6. The area shall be cordoned off to all persons without adequate P.P.E until the asbestos is either removed or sealed by an approved contractor. NOTE: ANY EMERGENCY WORK SHALL ONLY BE CONDUCTED BY THE DIRECT AUTHORISATION OF THE RESPONSIBLE OFFICER (s) 9

10 5. CONTAMINATED AREAS Where it is suspected that fibres have contaminated an area, the following shall be carried out 1. Seek advice from the H.S.E licensed contractor 2. Have the area disturbance air tested by a recognised body. Accredited to ISO EN45001 (EN17025) 3. If control limits are exceeded then the area shall be cordoned off to all persons without adequate P.P.E 4. The area shall be either stripped or cleaned of asbestos or the asbestos sealed and the area cleared up by an approved licensed contractor. 5. Further air tests may be necessary Testing for Asbestos The taking of samples for analysis shall only be carried out by Responsible Officers or Competent Persons who are aware of all precautions and procedures, relating to asbestos etc. Reference should be made to the Guidance Notes in Appendix I Generally the guidance given earlier in emergency repairs shall be followed with the exception that any asbestos damaged by bulk sampling is repaired and that P.P.E is disposed of in the recognised manner. Removal of Asbestos An approved licensed contractor, under the supervision of a Responsible Officer shall carry out removal of Asbestos. A Responsible Officer shall monitor the contractor to ensure that all work is carried out to current guidance and practices. The Code of Practice gives practical guidance on complying with the Regulations. The code applies to all work activities directly involving asbestos, including handling, movement, storage, manufacturing, constructions, processing, repairing, maintenance, demolition and disposal. However, it does not consider in detail those activities covered by the separate Code of Practice. Work with asbestos insulation, asbestos coating and asbestos insulating board. A brief summary is given below:- Identification and assessment Before any work with asbestos is started the Trust must ensure a thorough assessment of the likely exposure is carried out. Such an assessment must identify the type of asbestos involved in the work, or to which the employees are likely to be exposed. For the purposes of the identification requirement the employer may assume that the asbestos is asbestos other than chrysotile alone, i.e. can assume the worst case scenario and provide for the situation accordingly. The assessment must also determine the nature and degree of any exposure and the steps required to prevent or reduce the exposure to the lowest level reasonably practicable. Assessments must be reviewed regularly and when there is reason to suspect that the original assessment is invalid or there is a significant change in the work to which the original assessment related. Assessments should be revised accordingly to take account of any such changes. 10

14 Appendix 2 Procedures for Sampling of Asbestos Materials and For Airborne Contamination The following procedures are to be adhered to whenever sampling for asbestos or contamination is suspected. The Responsible Officer should always be responsible for the initiation, implementation and supervision of sampling of materials or air sampling and for keeping all records up to date. The Responsible Officer may delegate core sampling to a competent person. Labels showing the date, exact location of sample, name address & telephone number of contact, and whether the sample is suspected of containing asbestos should identify all samples. All samples should be double bagged. Air sampling must only be carried out by a recognised body. Accredited to ISO EN45001 (EN17025); Further guidance is included in HSE HSG264. A Responsible Officer shall be responsible for the authenticity of the sample and that there is no question of the filter being substituted for any other filter. Each air filter to be analysed should be enclosed in a container specifically made for the transport of the filter. It should be labelled to show the exact location of the air sample (As for core sampling) The Responsible Officer shall ensure that the asbestos register and files are kept up to date. The files should be such that easy and dependable references can be made whenever asbestos contamination is suspected. The files should be carefully indexed and cross referenced with separate files containing detailed location maps showing the locations of asbestos or (with pipework lengths or ceiling areas where applicable), clearance certificates, bulk sampling analysis, air monitoring, clearance tests and waste consignment notes. 14
