Do I need an asbestos audit? 

Asbestos audits are cost effective way of fulfilling a legal obligation.

The Control of Asbestos Regs 2012 (CAR Regulation 4) says that the duty holder must ensure that your (asbestos management) plan is reviewed and revised at regular intervals

The ACoP* says that as a minimum the management plan, including records and drawings, should be reviewed every 12 months.

The effective way to approach your review is with an asbestos audit – What have you achieved? What do you have in place? What remains to be done to be done?  An asbestos audit leads you to the key questions and ensures your review is structured and thorough.

Epsilon’s asbestos audits for you

Epsilon’s asbestos audits are not ‘tick box‘ exercises but set out the key questions under which your performance can be judged.

That includes positive achievements as well as future management aims.  To this end we have developed two levels of asbestos audit so that you can choose the one that suits your needs.

40-point asbestos audit

Our 40-point audit reviews your documentation against the requirements of the regulations.  It aims to ensure you are demonstrating a sound management approach and that you have the records expected under Regulation 4.  The audit structures its 40 points  under 8 crucial headings:

  1. Clear responsibilities
  2. Comprehensive asbestos information
  3. Up to date asbestos records
  4. Scheduled monitoring arrangements
  5. Valid risk assessments
  6. Managed action plan
  7. Communication plan
  8. Review schedules

Typically, a 40-point asbestos audit will involve up to half a day at your site, conversation with the responsible person and a review of documents. We subsequently issue a full report. The report is layed out in table form with clearly indicated successes and required actions for you to follow.

Fees for this start at just £249 + VAT for a medium-sized company. To book your call-back now call 01924 882 426. We’ll answer any questions and discuss your requirements with no obligation.

80-point asbestos audit

Our 80-point audit reviews your asbestos management system in more depth. It aims to probe the assumptions made in your documentation to ensure that your system is robust and works in practice. The audit structures its 80 points under the same 8 crucial headings:

  • Clear responsibilities
  • Comprehensive asbestos information
  • Up to date asbestos records
  • Scheduled monitoring arrangements
  • Valid risk assessments
  • Managed action plan
  • Communication plan
  • Review schedules

Because this asbestos audit is in more depth, it typically involves up to one day at your site, conversations with appropriate persons and a review of documentation against sample inspections of the site. We subsequently issue a comprehensive report. The report is layed out in table form with clearly indicated successes, required actions and a recommended plan for completion.

Fees for all this start at just £399 + VAT for a medium-sized company.  To book your call-back now call 01924 882 426. We’ll answer any questions and discuss your requirements with no obligation.
