The challenge

As a charity and church organisation with many service-users, the Salvation Army relies on its network of sites to support people in need. However, the organisation was aware that its approach to asbestos required updating to comply with the new asbestos regulations.

The solution

We completed a comprehensive asbestos survey of the Salvation Army’s entire UK property portfolio. This included corps centre halls, domestic quarters and regional offices, ensuring that the organisation’s activities continued seamlessly at all sites. We also completed a review of the Salvation Army’s asbestos policy so that it meets all current legislation, as well as implementing a comprehensive asbestos management system across the whole organisation.

The solution

As MPS Care Group’s asbestos awareness partner, we were able to provide all the immediate and long-term support they required. Following an initial asbestos survey of 14 care homes, we acted quickly to make HSE guidance-standard adjustments to the sites, where required. We also met the company’s asbestos strategy concerns by working with them to develop an asbestos policy, along with a set of asbestos procedures. This support is backed by an annual reinspection to confirm that the company’s care homes continue to comply with asbestos regulations.

In the second in our series on asbestos issues in specific building-types, we’ll be taking a look at the 1960s council house. Since the start of “right-to-buy”, the 1960s council house has been viewed as a good property. However, as with most types of buildings, it pays to watch out for some key asbestos-related issues. Please note that the list below is most definitely not fully comprehensive as there could be many other possible risk areas!

From In the third in our series on asbestos issues in specific building-types, we’ll be taking a look at churches, both old and new. As we’ve written before, a big asbestos-related issue for churches is heating. But there are many other aspects as well. It’s important to be aware of asbestos in churches because asbestos management reports are now required by ecclesiastical insurance providers. However daunting the issue might appear at the outset, it’s easier than most people think to assess and report on asbestos in churches.

In the next in our series on asbestos issues in specific building-types, we’re taking a look at industrial sheds. These buildings can be deceptive. Even though they are often made of profiled metal cladding with steel frames,masonry walls and UPVC windows, they are large open spaces that can hide older structures. This is particularly true for sheds from the 1970s/1980’s where the cement roof or walls forming the weather proofing have been overclad or underclad.
