Managing Asbestos in Schools
Asbestos is still present in over 75% of UK schools. The Department of Education’s guidance on the management of asbestos in schools and colleges outlines the duty holder’s legal obligations. The guidance also includes the 5 steps that are needed to be taken to ensure asbestos is managed effectively.
There is a requirement to have an up-to-date asbestos management plan in place and emergency procedures to deal with accidental exposure. D
Duty holders can face prosecution by failing to comply with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
An asbestos management survey will identify where and what the asbestos product is, what condition is in, what risk it poses, and how to manage it safely.
