To satisfy the requirements of Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, CDM Scotland Ltd offers a wide range of asbestos related services to its Clients, meeting every aspect of the regulations from initial assessment through to final report stage and ongoing management.
We can offer asbestos site surveys and asbestos awareness training workshops for employees by experienced and knowledgeable personnel. Additionally, we can assist with the development of an asbestos management plan in order to comply with the Control of Asbestos Regulation 2012.
Our asbestos services include:
CDM Scotland Ltd delivers Asbestos Management and Asbestos Refurbishment & Demolition Surveys for a wide array of Clients across a number of diverse sites using highly experienced Asbestos Surveyors. The key to the delivery of a usable and understandable asbestos survey is communication. Communication with the Client is essential as it ensures that they get a workable document to ensure no project delays and more importantly, no exposure to asbestos containing materials.
Asbestos Management Surveys assist you with the task of providing a management plan enabling compliance with Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
No two projects are the same - many have unique risks and many are complicated in their own way. Having experienced project management personnel at your disposal, either in addition to your existing team or to oversee projects in times of increased workload, allows the Contractor to deliver increased flexibility to their Clients. We work within our Client’s management systems to deliver cost effective management solutions to the most challenging of projects. We encourage communication with end users, regulatory bodies, Client representatives and work parties to ensure project delivery is not delayed and the project is delivered safely and within budget.
Using our extensive list of pre-approved UKAS accredited analysts we can commission a wide array of analytical services on your behalf including Air Testing (4 stage clearance, Personal Monitoring, Re-assurance, Leak, Background, Decontamination Unit Clearance) and Bulk Sample Analysis (including water absorption).
It is a common misconception that an asbestos report is all that is needed to comply with regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 - known as the Duty to Manage Regulation. Not only must you identify the presence of asbestos, but you are also legally obligated to manage the asbestos identified.
The easiest way to comply with the regulation is to commission an asbestos management plan of the premises. These documents are an essential tool to ensure that building occupants and tradesmen are protected from exposure to asbestos and that asbestos left in-situ is monitored on a regular basis. Using a combination of asbestos survey reports, bulk sample analysis, building construction information and even information regarding previous asbestos removal operations, we produce site specific management plans.
Training is not the only requirement which enables you to undertake the removal of asbestos - you also need to comply with the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. Whether you are a Licensed Asbestos Removal Contractor or a Non-Licensed Contractor, in order to do this, you need a comprehensive management system in place to ensure that you are compliant with the legislation.
What we offer is a management system created specifically for your company - it includes EVERYTHING you need to fully comply with the regulations. It will not be complicated, but it will include all aspects needed to ensure you are fully compliant with the law.
Asbestos Awareness training should be given to employees whose work could foreseeably disturb the fabric of a building and expose them to asbestos.
During the training presentation, attendees will learn about asbestos, its history, where it can be found in buildings, health implications, legislation and emergency procedures. Armed with this information, it places them in a position where their knowledge can significantly reduce the chances of themselves or building occupants being exposed to asbestos.
Our training is provided by experienced personnel who have extensive knowledge of the asbestos industry - this is the best kind of person to deliver such training.
We deliver a Client-by-Client approach to site audits as each Client is different and operate in their own way. By randomly selecting jobs in conjunction with our Clients, this gives a true indication of how their company is performing instead of relying on pre-determined site visits.
We don’t only look at the asbestos issues; we also assess all health and safety risks, external factors, management systems on site, emergency procedures and the personnel themselves.
The information we provide is more than a ‘tick sheet’ and gives the Client REAL information they can use in the continual improvement of their operations.

"CDM worked diligently and professionally throughout the course of the Management survey and also the removal project. In fact, we hardly knew they were on site which was great as it did not affect our site production and also our own staff were not alarmed by any of the survey/removal works, being carried out by this professional team. The Project Manager was on site every day which we found very reassuring. All completion paperwork very comprehensive and handed over promptly. I have no doubt that we will use their services again in the future."

"CDM Scotland have been working with Sandstone UK for over five years. We don’t class them as one of our sub-contractors but more a partner to help improve our health and safety on our sites throughout Scotland and England on a continuing basis. CDM Scotland constantly deliver a high level of service in their reporting, surveying and managing removal works.
CDM Scotland are very professional with their online workshops and onsite training. As we are all aware, in the construction industry it’s sometimes very hard to point our people in the right direction when it comes to health and safety and to keep them going in that direction, but, as well as working with all our UK Contracts Managers, they are a massive help to our sub-contractors, working with them closely re asbestos awareness and, just as importantly, with the required paperwork and documents."
