Spring CPD - Asbestos and Lead (Crawley)

This ​CPD ​series ​will ​cover ​two ​topics ​over ​one ​day: ​

  • Morning Session: The duty to manage asbestos.  Speaker - Michael Doherty, Bell Safety (Support Services)
  • Afternoon Session: Construction lead (paint & dust) hazards training. Speaker - Tristan Olivier, Lead Paint Safety Association 

You ​are ​invited ​to ​book ​both ​of ​the ​sessions ​or ​just ​one ​of ​them. ​ ​Lunch ​is ​included ​if ​you ​book ​both. ​ ​ ​You ​will ​receive ​6 ​points ​for ​a ​half-day ​session ​or ​12 ​points ​if ​you ​attend ​both. ​ ​

Morning ​Session: ​The ​duty ​to manage ​asbestos

Why ​do ​you ​need ​this ​training?

The ​regulations ​require ​MANAGERS ​of ​property ​and ​construction ​work ​to ​have ​competence ​in ​making ​correct ​decisions. ​This ​could ​be: ​surveyors, ​architects, ​estates ​departments, ​engineers ​and ​maintenance ​staff. ​

It ​is ​absolutely ​critical ​that ​Principal ​Designers ​and ​CDM ​advisors ​understand ​the ​principals ​of ​prevention, ​with ​regard ​to ​the ​control ​of ​asbestos ​regulations ​2013 ​and ​more ​specifically ​regulation ​4 ​“duty ​to ​manage”

What you'll learn

On ​completion ​of ​this ​course ​delegates ​should:

  • Be ​familiar ​with ​types, ​uses, ​risks ​and ​likely ​occurrences ​of ​asbestos ​in ​buildings ​and ​where ​appropriate ​items ​of ​plant
  • Be ​familiar ​with ​requirements ​as ​set ​out ​in ​CAR ​2012 ​with ​regard ​to ​responsibilities.
  • Understand ​the ​requirements ​for ​asbestos ​surveys ​and ​different ​types ​of ​surveys
  • Be ​familiar ​with ​the ​results ​of ​an ​asbestos ​survey, ​how ​to ​decipher ​the ​information ​contained ​within ​the ​asbestos ​survey ​report

Benefits

The ​attendees ​should ​have ​previously ​undertaken ​Asbestos ​Awareness ​training. ​An ​assessment ​of ​management ​knowledge ​gained ​during ​this ​session ​will ​be ​undertaken. ​Successful ​completion ​of ​the ​assessment ​will ​enable ​the ​candidate ​to ​be ​awarded ​an ​APS ​Certificate ​in ​“Duty ​to ​Manage ​Asbestos ​”. ​This ​will ​also ​provide ​a ​foundation ​and ​basis ​of ​knowledge ​for ​candidates ​who ​wish ​to ​continue ​and ​the ​take ​the ​APS ​specialist ​knowledge ​exam ​on ​Asbestos.

Afternoon ​Session: Construction lead (paint & dust) hazards training

Why ​do you need this training?

Lead, ​including ​its ​compounds, ​is ​a ​neurotoxin. ​Lead ​exposure ​can ​damage ​the ​brain, ​central ​nervous ​system ​and ​can ​harm ​every ​other ​body ​system. ​There ​is ​no ​'safe' ​level ​of ​lead ​exposure, ​which ​is ​why ​HSE ​advises ​to ​assume ​all ​paint ​contains ​lead.

All ​CDM ​PD’s ​CDM ​advisor, ​Principal ​Contractors, ​Contractors ​and ​Health ​and ​Safety ​practitioners ​have ​a ​responsibility ​to ​ensure ​that ​all ​designs ​and ​work ​prevents ​or ​minimises ​lead ​exposure ​risks. ​

What ​do ​we ​all ​need ​to ​know?

1. ​How ​to ​identify ​all ​materials ​which ​may ​have ​lead ​in ​the ​fabric ​or ​structure ​and ​carryout ​the ​appropriate ​(XRF-i) ​survey, ​record ​the ​findings ​and ​share ​those ​findings ​with ​other ​relevant ​people.

2. ​ ​How ​to ​protect ​the ​health ​of ​people ​at ​work ​by ​preventing ​or, ​where ​this ​is ​not ​reasonably ​practicable, ​adequately ​controlling ​their ​exposure ​to ​lead; ​and

3. ​ ​How ​to ​ensure ​we ​monitor ​the ​amount ​of ​lead ​absorbed ​so ​that ​individuals ​whose ​work ​involves ​significant ​exposure ​(as ​defined ​by ​the ​Regulations) ​to ​lead ​at ​work ​can ​be ​taken ​off ​such ​work ​before ​their ​health ​is ​affected.

Legal ​Requirements

Control ​of ​Lead ​at ​Work ​Regulations ​2002, ​work ​in ​accordance ​with ​the ​Control ​of ​Lead ​at ​work ​Approved ​Code ​of ​Practice ​(Third ​edition) ​L132 ​and ​consult ​industry ​guidance ​Lead ​and ​You ​(INDG305 ​(rev2). ​See ​also ​CSkills ​'Construction ​Site ​Safety' ​manual, ​GE700.

Application ​of ​the ​Regulations

The ​Regulations ​apply ​to ​any ​type ​of ​work ​activity, ​e.g. ​handling, ​processing, ​repairing, ​maintenance, ​storage, ​disposal ​etc. ​which ​could ​expose ​people ​to ​lead ​as ​defined ​in ​regulation ​2 ​of ​the ​Regulations, ​i.e. ​to:

(a) ​metallic ​lead, ​its ​alloys, ​and ​all ​its ​compounds ​including ​lead ​alkyls

(b) ​lead ​when ​it ​is ​a ​component ​of ​any ​substance ​or ​material

The ​lead ​must ​also ​be ​in ​a ​form ​in ​which ​it ​is ​likely ​to ​be:

(a) ​inhaled, ​e.g. ​lead ​dust, ​fume ​or ​vapour

(b) ​ingested, ​e.g. ​lead ​powder, ​dust, ​paint ​or ​paste

(c) ​absorbed ​through ​the ​skin, ​e.g. ​lead ​alkyls ​or ​lead ​naphthenate.

Assess ​the ​Risk ​

1. ​undertake ​a ​suitable ​and ​sufficient ​assessment, ​using ​the ​lead ​survey ​as ​a ​guidance ​document

2. ​identify ​and ​implement ​all ​relevant ​control ​measures

3. ​record ​the ​significant ​findings

 Introduce ​Control ​Measures, ​and ​Carry ​Out ​Air ​Monitoring ​If ​Exposure ​Is ​Significant

(a) ​introduce ​control ​measures ​to ​prevent ​'significant' ​exposure ​- ​ie. ​to ​prevent ​a ​substantial ​risk ​of ​ingestion

Given ​recent ​HSE ​enforcement ​for ​dry ​scraping ​and ​sanding ​during ​paintwork ​preparation, ​without ​a ​lead ​survey ​in ​place, ​the ​presence ​of ​'significant' ​lead ​exposure ​risks ​is ​widespread. Their ​presence ​imposes ​legal ​obligations ​on ​employers ​to ​provide:

  • Information,instruction ​and ​training
  • Biological ​monitoring ​of ​blood ​lead ​levels
  • Task-specific ​personal ​air ​monitoring*
  • Suitable ​PPE/RPE

*Air ​monitoring ​is ​not ​the ​sole ​measure ​of ​compliance.
