Project Management Information

From tender preparation and adjudication (to make sure that what is tendered is what is needed), through to monitoring of the contract to ensure compliance with the project specification.

Systems Management Information

For many employers, the management of asbestos presents numerous challenges and poses many difficult questions. What should I do? How do I control my asbestos? How do I advise others of asbestos on my sites? These issues have been compounded in recent years with the sheer number of changes that have been introduced in the asbestos regulatory process, along with compounding guidance in the education sector and social housing sector. For many, the solution lies in the use of a specialist consultancy able to advise and assist on all these matters. Asbestos management for many organisations is a complex process fraught with problems and issues. We are able to help by drawing on our own extensive knowledge, the experiences of our numerous clients, and our understanding developed from our close liaison with key decision-making groups. This allows us to ensure that our clients benefit from the right approach and have in place the correct strategy for managing asbestos. Our systems management processes range from the development of asbestos surveying strategies to fulfilling the staff training requirements necessary under the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations. Alongside this, we are able to offer internet-based asbestos management solutions.

Management Plans

An asbestos survey represents only partial compliance with the regulations. The development of asbestos management plans is essential in controlling asbestos risk. We have extensive experience in drawing up and implementing asbestos management plans. We are able to produce tailored plans and strategies for all types of organisation and we have developed online systems alongside various database providers to help with ongoing management and enforcement. Where asbestos issues are identified we have the capacity to plan and manage appropriate responses, whether this is the treatment or removal of asbestos or focused training of personnel. Thames Laboratories are able to provide these additional professional services – a true asbestos solution!
