Case Study 4 - Plastics Manufacturing Company

Asbestos compliance for the Scottish division of a global company.

We were appointed to survey a large manufacturing plant for a global plastics manufacturing company. Following the appointment of a new health and safety management team, it was found that their asbestos compliance needed a full refresh. A survey had been carried out in the past, but it was found to be out of date and not up to contemporary standards.


On award of this contract in 2018, the first action we took was to implement an asbestos management plan to ensure that effective procedures and control of works were in place from the outset, to prevent workers disturbing asbestos. Following this, a full asbestos management survey of the site was carried out. Facilities staff were provided with asbestos management and asbestos awareness training to ensure staff were fully conversant with their legal duties.

Following completion of the management surveys, the management plans were updated and priorities for action were established.

We had identified a considerable amount of asbestos in the 1960's site and worked closely with the facilities management to agree a suitable and practicable strategy to manage asbestos on a complex site with 24 hour operations. Where asbestos was required to be removed, this was arranged. Where asbestos remained in situ, we implemented an ongoing high sensitivity air monitoring programme utilising Scanning Electron Microscopy and Transmission Electron Microscopy, alongside standard HSE monitoring, to ensure that exposure levels are acceptable.


On completion of this project, we were appointed to carry out compliance updates for another two of the company's factory sites in Scotland and continue to provide compliance updates on a regular basis.
