Asbestos – How SMART technology can be used to overcome one of the greatest challenges facing property professionals today
Dutyholders, responsible for asbestos management in their properties, are now facing a new set of challenges. Over the last year a significant number of properties have become empty, but they still need regular maintenance works to make sure their condition doesn’t deteriorate.
Regrettably visiting contractors often present the greatest asbestos risk. Yet, IOSH surveys reveal that only 1 in 3 contractors have ever seen an Asbestos Register and truly know exactly where asbestos is located before carrying out work. This is particularly worrying given even the smallest maintenance job could dislodge asbestos whilst carrying out building modifications and repairs. Unfortunately managing maintenance contractors’ activities in voids and unmanned sites can be notoriously difficult.
- How certain are you that contractors are not disturbing asbestos in your properties?
- How do you make sure contractors have been given accessible information regarding the location of any asbestos in your buildings? Many haven’t seen an asbestos register - even though it’s a legal requirement.
- What safeguards can you put in place to help make sure asbestos isn’t disturbed?
- How do you obtain line-of-sight reporting across your portfolio?
Join us to hear Andrew Paten, Co-Founder of UKNAR CIC speak about how property managers and other dutyholders can use today’s QR SMART technology to provide contractors with instant access to their asbestos registers; fulfilling their legal responsibilities and sharing vital information that will help minimise the risk of accidental asbestos disturbances and exposures.
