Independent Training News (ITN) HSG264 Taking us to New Places?

The new survey guidance has been around for six or seven months now and I would like to ask where is it taking us?

We are all aware of the changes: New Survey types, Management, Demolition/Refurbishment replacing the Types 1,2 and 3. The clarification of the survey types will assist the clients in ensuring the appropriate survey is carried out. Quality and Competence: Client has a responsibility to ensure the competence of the surveyor, recommended minimum of training and experience of surveyors. Report production and presentation: To ensure reports are produced and presented so that duty holders can utilise the information effectively. Pre Survey Planning: Planning prior to survey to enable appropriate survey and production of relevant information.

number of tradesmen involved in the installation of home improvements who may be exposed to asbestos during the course of their everyday work. Thanks to the clarification of survey types in HSG264, it is clear that a part survey of a limited area can easily be carried out. The ideal application of such localised area surveys would be a pre refurbishment survey in a domestic setting. This would address the problem of potential exposure during localised works such as kitchen and bathroom refits. For many years PA Group has been carrying out full and part property surveys in domestic properties for social landlords to locate asbestos prior to such refurbishment programmes. It is clear that this approach urgently needs to be rolled out to privately owned domestic properties.

This brings us back to CAR2006, Reg 4 states the domestic properties are excluded. This could explain why home improvements companies do not feel there is a duty to carry out an asbestos survey. I feel that when read with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, an employer has a Survey reports should form part of an asbestos management plan and duty to ensure that its employee’s place of work is a safe environment. are not the management plan in itself. This being so, it surely follows that the risks associated with a domestic should be identified as much as they would for a commercial property? In the main the changes are good for both client and surveyor. There is a If I live in a 1930’s semi and I want a new kitchen with a new boiler, requirement to produce useful factual reports by competent and possibly and new circuit breaker why wouldn’t I or the kitchen fitter, experienced surveyors. The client has a duty to employ and instruct have an asbestos survey carried out? There may be a number of asbestos suitably qualified individuals or companies. Will this lead to the duty containing materials present including, textured coating on the ceiling, holders considering that the cheapest surveying quote is not always the asbestos board in the boiler cupboard, asbestos paper behind the best? Will the client focus on who exactly is to carry out the survey rather partition? Now that HSG264 points out that any part of a building that is than how much it will cost? If there was an increased level of awareness to be refurbished has to have a fully intrusive survey done, why among clients of their duties and responsibilities I would say that this is shouldn’t I have one in my home, to mitigate risk to myself and the possible. The sad fact is that despite the best efforts of the HSE and other contactor? Am I the duty holder or is the company I have employed to like minded bodies there is still a huge gulf in asbestos awareness. It do the work, who have a duty to their employees under H&S 1974 but seems that only those companies that regularly engage in asbestos are excluded from CAR2006? My guess is that, as usual, the contractor management; (property surveyors and management companies for may have to take the responsibility. example) are aware of the duties and responsibilities. Considering the high profile nature of asbestos, there is still a lot of news coverage, and a In my view this industry is exposing itself to future litigation. My home massive amount of information on the internet, it is surprising to find can be become a place of work, albeit temporarily and therefore H&S that duty holders or interested parties are unaware they have a responsi- 1974 applies. I think that the publication of HSG264 has taken us down a bility to manage their asbestos risk. new road. This may not have been considered before because it was In future the hope is that this changes and the duty holder is more excluded, (maybe wrongly?) as domestic properties were not a place of asbestos aware. work. I would like to spotlight an issue that may have arisen as a result of the way demolition/refurbishment surveys are carried out. This issue, I feel, has an impact across a huge sector of the construction market. Namely the market in home improvements. This sector ranges from new kitchens, double glazing, conservatories, central heating and electrical installation. I am as yet unaware of any large home improvement company that carries out asbestos surveys prior to the commencement of works in a domestic property. Is this because CAR 2006 specifically excludes domestic properties? Recent figures suggest that up to 2.4 million homes contain asbestos products in the UK. There are a large

Independent Training News (ITN) Fit for task employees – how is your company responsible? For every single individual killed on a building site, a further 14 are dying from asbestos related disease. This poignantly illustrates the importance of fit- for-task testing as outlined by Constructing Better Health (CBH) in the National Standards for Management of Occupational Health (OH). Under health and safety law, all asbestos licensed workers are required to undergo statutory medicals, but not necessarily fitness-for-task checks. CBH is working closely with the Asbestos Liaison Group (ALG) to push the need for fitness-for-task health checks. Section 4 of the current ALG Workplan, stipulates that asbestos workers must receive fitness-for-task health checks beyond the basic requirements of statutory Regulation 22 medical examination. For asbestos licensed employers, it lifts the veil on what HSE inspectors are really looking for, while helping to grow sustainable good practice in their business. The CBH standards identify asbestos removal work as being ‘safety critical’: “Where the ill health of an individual may compromise their ability to undertake a task defined as safety critical, thereby posing a significant risk to the health and safety of others.” It is important that asbestos licensed workers are not suffering from medical conditions or undergoing any medical treatment which is likely to cause sudden loss of consciousness or incapacity, impairment of awareness, concentration, balance or coordination or significant limitation of mobility.

tors. In addition, it allows workers to move from different sites without incurring added costs to the employer of repeating occupational health checks. Using the CBH card, an employer can check that an employee is fit-for-task in the office or on site, but is not permitted access to their medical records. CBH has been welcomed by asbestos licensed companies nationwide, including Rhodar, Erith Group, Shield Environmental, Kingsley Environmental Services, DLP Hire/Insulation, Advanced Environmental Services, Fibreclean UK, R&F Insulations & Northern Insulation Contractors , all of which signed up to the scheme. Michelle Aldous, chief executive of CBH said: “We recommend regular health checks for all workers undertaking ‘safety critical work’ to protect their own health and safety and that of others. A worker’s fitness-for-task is likely to change over time so it’s important to establish a system that recalls workers who require ongoing health checks. That’s where CBH’s new system comes in.”

For more information on the CBH scheme, visit www.constructingbetterhealth.co.uk or call 0845 873 7726.

Access to the CBH national database has been written into the criteria of Section 4 of the ALG workplan. As asbestos workers receive fitness for task surveillance from CBH accredited OH Service Providers, this information is recorded on the database and is easily accessed for inclusion in a mandatory company audit. While joining CBH is not compulsory, their contribution to Section 4 is a robust and demonstrable means of OH management for your employees, clients and inspec-

The reality There are no regulations banning people from hanging bunting at weddings and village fetes or flying flags for sporting events. HSE encourages people to have a bit of common sense about their attitudes to risk, not to make everything risk-free. There won't be an army of inspectors cutting down bunting or insisting flags are lowered. HSE exists to prevent people being killed or seriously injured at work, not to stop people celebrating in style. http://www.hse.gov.uk/myth/aug10.htm

Independent Training News (ITN) BRITISH LUNG FOUNDATION

Charity Asbestos campaign offers a helping hand After the launch of the British Lung Foundation’s Action Mesothelioma Day in July this year the charity is encouraging people to use their ‘top tips’ when dealing with asbestos or look at their new online video, especially as people start to get ‘handy’ over the bank holiday. BLF research found that over 14 million homes were built when asbestos was being used as a building material between the 1950’s and 1999. The online video fronted by celebrity DIY-er and winner of Big Brother 1 Craig Phillips is aimed at homeowners who may live in houses which contain asbestos and regularly do DIY but do not realise the dangers of exposure to the material. Along with the top tips the BLF offers the following advice: Asbestos containing materials in good condition are not a health risk and should be left alone Never sand, drill or saw objects which may contain asbestos like textured ceiling coatings, floor tiles or asbestos cement roofs Common places where asbestos could be found include floor tiles, toilet cisterns, textured ceiling coatings, asbestos cement roofs, soffit boards and linings of boiler cupboards Always seek professional advice from your local authority or an accredited asbestos removal company before thinking of removing asbestos materials For more information about the campaign or to view the video and the top tips please visit www.lunguk.org/actionmeso The British Lung Foundation is also looking to develop their Asbestos campaign over the next three years and there will great opportunities for sponsorship and partnership work.

Youngest Asbestos Victim dies aged 18 Britain's youngest ever victim of a killer cancer linked to asbestos has died after a heartbreaking five-year battle against the disease. Brave Sophie Ellis was just 13 when she was diagnosed with mesothelioma and given months to live. But she defied the doctors' predictions and fought the disease until her death at 18 surrounded by her family. Despite being desperately ill, she spoke movingly about her ordeal last year in support of the Mirror's Asbestos Time-bomb campaign and her startling story proved an inspiration. She said: "The cancer has made me braver in a way. It was pretty tough being diagnosed at such a young age and the surgery was painful. "I hope more can be done to understand this disease - that's why I'm backing the Mirror's campaign." The talented musician never gave up her dream of becoming an actress, even after surgery to remove a lung and losing the use of her legs.

related illnesses. Asbestos has also been implicated in the deaths of younger people like Leigh Carlisle, who was diagnosed with mesothelioma aged 26. Leigh died in 2008, aged 28, and it’s still unknown whether her illness was caused by asbestos in her school or taking a shortcut through a factory yard where asbestos was cut.

Closing the cupboard door The Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2006 bans the importation, supply and use of all forms of asbestos. The most dangerous types, crocidolite (blue asbestos) and amosite (brown asbestos) have been banned since 1985, while chrysotile (white asbestos) has been banned since 1999. There’s also a ban on the second-hand use of asbestos Written by Joanne Lewis, chair of the education group for the Institution products. of Occupational Safety and Health Nevertheless, asbestos and ACMs can often be found in schools and Learning to manage the risks in day-to-day activities is part of a good colleges built or refurbished before blue and brown asbestos were education.

Some ACMs such as asbestos cement were still used up from the busy road where a crossing or lollipop warden helps pupils to until 1999. cross safely to the science lab where safety spectacles stop chemicals splashing into students’ eyes. The Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations specify a “duty to manage asbestos” for non-domestic premises.

But with knowledge and effective management, we can tame it. it’s likely to be damaged, it can be left in place and monitored regularly Know your monster to make sure it’s still sound. In order to manage the risk, it’s important to understand what you’re dealing with. The Asbestos Training and Consultancy Association (ATaC) says that around 75 per cent of Britain’s schools contain asbestos and asbestos containing materials (ACMs). There are high-risk materials such as asbestos lagging on pipes and boilers; sprayed asbestos used for thermal insulation, fire protection, partitioning and ducts; some ceiling tiles; and asbestos insulation board. Some ACMs, such as floor tiles, asbestos cement roofing and guttering, and textured coatings, are considered a lower risk – but a risk nonetheless. The menace of asbestos is two-fold: it causes respiratory illness and death, and it acts with stealth so many victims don’t know about the damage until it’s too late. Mesothelioma, the most potent asbestosrelated cancer, can take 20 or 30 years to emerge, and by the time patients realise they’ve got it, they often have only months left to live. In the UK, around 2,000 people die from mesothelioma every year. The figure has doubled since 1992, and it’s set to rise further because many of the people who were exposed before the ban won’t know they’re ill yet. To date, says ATaC, 178 teachers are known to have died from asbestos-

For most educational establishments, the ‘dutyholder’ will be the employer. In many cases that’s the Local Education Authority, although for voluntary aided schools, foundation schools and Academies it will be the school governors, and for independent schools it may be the proprietor, governors or trustees. These measures aim to close the cupboard door; to contain the asbestos monster so it can do no more harm. But it’s important to acknowledge that constant monitoring and competent management is needed to make sure that door stays closed. Support for schools In February this year a snapshot survey of 16 British schools by ATaC found that none of them was meeting the regulations on managing asbestos. The report followed a questionnaire carried out by the Department for Children, Schools and Families and HSE in 2009 on local authorities and dioceses, which showed similar flaws in asbestos management. ATaC says that many schools lack the resources to manage asbestos safely, and has joined forces with the Campaign Against Asbestos in

Independent Training News (ITN) Schools to press for a working group to be set up, risk assessments and management plans to be effectively implemented, and full training to be introduced for teachers and school staff. Some teachers’ unions are also calling for all asbestos to be eliminated from school premises. At the very least, the survey has highlighted a need to give schools more support in managing asbestos. “ATaC’s audit and our own research reveal that in many schools, staff are not aware of the dangers of asbestos; they do not know where it is and are not involved in its management,” says Philip Parkin, general secretary of Voice: the union for education professionals. “Urgent action is required to improve standards of asbestos management, and to create an action plan for asbestos in schools, including: audits, risk assessments, relevant training and guidance, and for all asbestos to be identified and removed in a phased programme when schools are refurbished.”

asbestos,” says David Garioch, corporate health and safety manager for the London Borough of Sutton. “Adequate training and support needs to be provided by the employer for schools to manage asbestos effectively.” David describes how those principles have been put into practice in Sutton. “We’ve provided school asbestos duty holder training along with help and support to complete the asbestos registers,” he says. “We firstly carried out a Materials Assessment through a competent contractor, and then worked with the duty holders to complete the Priority Assessment and show them how to inspect the condition for updating the register.” The key to taming the asbestos monster lies in education and advice from competent professionals. Everyone responsible for non-domestic premises should have their property checked for asbestos, using a competent person such as an accredited asbestos surveyor. And you need to keep checking any asbestos and ACMs to make sure you’re aware of any new risks that arise. Most importantly, information about the risks needs to be passed on to anyone – teachers, maintenance staff and pupils – who might come into contact with asbestos or ACMs. For more information

As with decorating or cooking, for the best results you must invest time in preparation. Think about all aspects, not just the course content. Be clear about the course objectives and what they will deliver for the audience; tell them "by the end of the course, the delegates will..." Think about how you will involve people using exercises, questions, case studies and group work. Bear in mind different people learn in different ways. Do not forget that people's concentration starts to drops off after about 15 minutes of doing the same thing, so build in variety, changes of pace, and mood.
