Following an introduction from EC Harris in Nottingham, Environtec was employed to deliver urgent compliance services to the combined NHS Trusts of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire to ensure healthcare centres were safe for all types of maintenance activities.


Project: Asbestos Compliance Programme

Client: Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire NHS

Sector: NHS & Healthcare

Location: Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire

Duration: 18 Months

Project Value: £125K


The newly combined Trust had concerns regarding maintenance activities within the health centre assets within both regions. Having conducted an estate wide asbestos survey in 2004, much of the asbestos register required an update to ensure conformity with HSG264 Asbestos – The Survey Guide.



The initial phase of work was to conduct a formal Asbestos Compliance Audit of the combined Trust’s asbestos management systems including the suitability of the asbestos registers. The audit and the improvements in the Trust’s asbestos management system were delivered by a Senior Consultant qualified to CoCA and with 10 years’ experience.

On completion of the audit, an Asbestos Management Plan and Asbestos Management Policy were developed, including an emergency procedure that was identified as being urgently required.

Once the systems and procedures had been developed, an estate wide asbestos management programme was implemented with survey reports and registers being delivered to the client in a conventional manner.
