We successfully delivered the asbestos management surveys through extensive planning with the Estates team and Compliance Manager during the mobilisation stage, highlighting all areas that were freely accessible to begin with and then working to programme surveys around occupied areas in liaison with Heads of Departments and the Estates team. Our focus on planning, maintaining regular liaison with University staff throughout the programme,and our flexibility in being able to react to changes on campus was a major factor in successfully delivering the survey to all areas and without causing disruption to the University.
Survey data was collected using Lucion’s NexGen surveying app and stored within our NexGen asbestos portal for the University to access 24/7 via secure login free of charge. The system enables the Estates team and Compliance Manager full access to asbestos risk information which they can share with other staff and contractors to make sure they are safe when working across the campus.
We have since provided annual re-inspections of known asbestos containing materials across the campus and also carried out ad-hoc sampling and testing in order to maintain the University’s asbestos register in compliance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
