“Oracle in a package – Fast, Professional, Resilient!”
Mark Ward – Hermes
If you are looking for asbestos consultants who can carry out asbestos audits and quality checks on removal projects. You have come to the right place. We understand how hard it is to appoint a contractor. Especially when you want to ensure that your asbestos removal project is being done correctly and following HSE guidelines. This is where we step in, with over 200 years of combined asbestos knowledge. We know what it is to look out for and how the project should be done.
Auditing is also a useful tool for those wishing to quality check workers who have undertaken non licensed work with asbestos training. The following page details auditing for licensed asbestos removal work, however we undertake detailed asbestos audits of non-licensed asbestos removal work. The format is slightly different but just as detailed in the relevant areas. The non-licensed asbestos work audits focus heavily on the workers involved and look for competency ratings to help you comply with the requirements of asbestos legislation. Asbestos training is not confirmation of competency. Competency must be proven as required under the law. For more information on non-licensed asbestos work audits speak to a member of the team.

What is an Asbestos Audit / Quality Check?
An asbestos audit / quality check is where a fully qualified, independent and experienced person comes to site and checks every single thing. Making sure it is fully compliant and within HSE guidelines. A full asbestos audit / quality check can be complicated. Below are a few headlines we inspect and look out for:
- ASB5 – 14 day notification to the HSE to undertake the works
- Method Statements and Risk Assessments – Detailed plan of works highlighting site specific risks and provision of controlled measures
- Asbestos Removal Equipment – Hand tools, decontamination units, H-Type vacuums, transformers are some of the tools used
- Training Certificates and Qualifications – 2 year HSE approved medical report and asbestos removal training for operative and supervisor as a minimum
- Enclosures – Fully enclosed area built by timber and polythene to gain a sealed area for the works
- Waste Routes / Transit Routes – Free from any obstruction and to be identified with barrier tape as a minimum. Needs to be as short as possible and as close to the enclosure as it can
