Asbestos management during lockdown

The current pandemic has caused unprecedented disruption to how and where we all work. But as restrictions start to ease, and attention turns to how and when to bring employees back into the work environment, asbestos management should be considered.

Stay compliant during COVID-19 workplace alterations

Social distancing is going to mean your office may not look the same. Ensuring safe distances between work spaces and in communal facilities may require more than moving furniture. Where additional COVID-19 control measures are being installed, structural alterations may be needed and these will need to be checked for associated risks such as asbestos.

To accommodate changes in how the building will be used over the coming months, we can support you to manage asbestos risk, ensure compliance and protect the health and safety of staff.

Undertake assessments during reduced occupancy

Despite the unprecedented circumstances surrounding COVID-19, asbestos risk remains unchanged. Existing obligations still apply, and the regulations must still be complied with.

A period of reduced occupancy is an ideal time to undertake your mandatory compliance assessments and we're here to help.

We're still operating and are on hand to ensure the health and safety of occupants is considered from every angle, not just COVID-19.

It's not just COVID-19 risks that need to be considered

"Return to work strategies involving workplace alterations will need to ensure asbestos management is considered. Equally, existing obligation and regulation still applies, and undertaking assessments while properties are at low or no occupancy may be the best time to benefit from minimal disruption”
