How to ensure your Asbestos Policy is compliant

Using our knowledge and expertise as a specialist property compliance consultant, we regularly undertake the review and redevelopment of compliance policies for social housing providers.  This includes improving and developing Gas, Electric, Asbestos, Fire and Water Hygiene policies.

Our market position is unique as we employ technical experts from a gas, electric, asbestos, fire and water hygiene backgrounds. We also employ housing practitioners that have managed property compliance both at an operational and executive level. Our Compliance Health Checks, which we undertake for a diverse range of social housing providers nationally, identify any compliance gaps and risks, and include policy reviews. Subsequently, we are well placed to ensure social housing providers achieve policy compliance.

What social housing providers need to factor into their Asbestos Policy

Below are some of the inclusions you need to be incorporating into your Asbestos Policy:

  • The Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012
  • Identify if asbestos is present, its location and condition (presume if in doubt) – year 2000
  • Up-to-date records of location and condition of ACM’s or presumed ACM’s
  • Assessing the risk from ACM found
  • Prepare a plan and put it in place

For further information on what other inclusions to incorporate into your Asbestos Policy to ensure it is compliant with current regulation, legislation and codes of practice, as well as information about our asbestos policy writing services, please email JNeville@pennington.org.uk
