Type of structure – Heavy industrial
Client – Licensed asbestos removal contractor
Grosvenor Asbestos Solutions were asked to quote and then remove the large asbestos cement roof over a vacant, double high-bay industrial Mill. The works were to be completed from an 18m mobile elevated work platform (MEWP) and fixed perimeter scaffold.
Detailed RAMS were produced to ensure all risks had been covered due to the added risks of working from a MEWP and potential for plant, personnel and asbestos falls. There were adverse weather conditions which hampered the removal and highs winds also complicated the project.
Site audits and meetings were held throughout the project to ensure that the staff completing the works were following the RAMS and also to show safe working practices.
All asbestos cement was removed in an efficient and safe manner, with the waste being placed into asbestos waste skips. Final completion paperwork was issued and waste consignment notes provided. Works were completed on time and in budget.
