Type of structure – Distribution Centre
Client – National food distribution business
For this specific business, the team at Grosvenor Asbestos Solutions worked between 2300hrs to 0500hrs to enable a localised clean of asbestos cement debris to be completed during the quiet period. This debris was identified during localised inspections and was widespread on ledges and surfaces in a staff car park. As such this had the potential for staff exposure to asbestos.
The work required minimal occupancy of the premises during the works process with reduced vehicle numbers visiting the building during the late to early hours. The added risk of working at height meant extra consideration and control of the working conditions and risks associated with them.
All areas were fully cleaned by the team with the removal of cement debris pieces and dust. Following the removal, all surfaces and surrounding areas were fully wiped and vacuumed to ensure the full job had been successful. At the end of the process, all documentation was updated, and the business was issued with clean air test certificates to prove the job had been done successfully.
In completing the removal and cleaning during unsociable hours, the client reduced their asbestos risk at their distribution centre and fully updated their risk register.
