Tackling Asbestos Management in Schools

08/12/16

New figures released last week by the BBC highlight the issue of asbestos in UK schools – and the potential consequences for schools and local authorities if they do not have adequate asbestos management and mitigation procedures in place.

Three quarters of schools have asbestos in their buildings and the figures obtained by the BBC show that councils in England have paid out at least £10m in compensation in the last ten years to people who developed illnesses because of asbestos in school buildings.

It is a stark reminder to schools that they must achieve and maintain compliance within The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 – or they could be left counting the cost.

To help combat the issue, Bureau Veritas offers a dedicated asbestos management and mitigation solution for schools. Our experienced team of asbestos management professionals is already working with clients in the education sector, and we understand the issues faced.

Stuart Taylor from Bureau Veritas said: “It is no surprise how many schools have asbestos in their buildings when you consider the age of those buildings, but the fact remains that schools – or any other organisation for that matter - simply cannot afford to ignore asbestos. 

“It is absolutely imperative that they have the correct management and mitigation procedures in place – and to do that they must work with an independent partner that they can trust.”

Working to the latest regulations and standards, Bureau Veritas offers a full range of asbestos management services to help schools achieve and maintain compliance, from asbestos management plans and surveys, to annual re-inspections and project management of asbestos remediation. We also provide air monitoring, laboratory sample analysis and training to deliver a complete solution and as a truly independent consultancy with no financial association to remediation or removal contractors, our clients have complete peace of mind over the integrity of our services.
