Asbestos Desktop Study / GAP Analysis

A First Step to Regulatory Compliance.

Achieving compliance with asbestos health and safety legislation can be both daunting and expensive. In recognition of this, Functio-Asbestos can provide an inital desktop study

What is a desktop study?

Functio Asbestos’ desktop study provides you with your first step to putting your business on track for full compliance with current legislation regarding asbestos – the ‘Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012’.

Taking the form of a gap analysis, the desktop study examines what you have done to date and identifies any shortfalls. A simple schedule is then created to help you plan your activities and show your route to compliance with the current and planned asbestos legislation.

As part of the study we will:

  • Review all current asbestos information held by your company
  • Clarify which procedures you have already in place for the management of asbestos
  • Identify the steps you need to take to achieve full compliance with current asbestos legislation
  • Provide a route map to compliance with easy to follow directions
  • Advise you of the procedures or adaptations you must make to ensure that you can show you have taken all reasonably practicable steps to manage your company’s risk from asbestos

How we can help you

Our desktop study will provide you with guidance on how to achieve compliance with asbestos legislation and provide you with specific detailed recommendations, budgets, a timetable of actions and a summary.

We will also help you to understand current legislative requirements, ensuring that the strategy recommended is appropriate and proportionate to the size and nature of your business.

Once completed we can then support you in your ongoing steps whether this be a requirements for Asbestos Audits, Training or an Asbestos Management Plan
