Asbestos Management

Estates and Facilities are charged by the University to manage asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within the fabric of buildings on the University estate.  It is up to individual Faculties and Directorates to manage the asbestos in their equipment, guidance and support for this is provided by the Asbestos Officer and Asbestos Surveyor.  

Estates and Facilities follow the Management of Asbestos Procedure (pdf, 564KB) which includes the Statement of Intent - Management of Asbestos (pdf, 188KB).

When planning any works that may interfer with the fabric of a building please ensure the Management of Asbestos Process Flow (pdf, 198KB) is followed to ensure the safety of those undertaking the work as well as those in the local area.

Asbestos Register

The electronic Asbestos Register is managed by the Asbestos Officer and the Asbestos Surveyor on behalf of Estates and Facilities.

Asbestos Sampling/Survey Request

If you require asbestos information please make a request on Estates and Facilities ServiceNow.  Please allow adequate time for the information to be collated as any samples required need to be analysied by an external laboratory and this takes a minimum of five working days.  If you have any questions please contact the Estates and Facilities Helpdesk on ext. 3001.
