Special access or equipment Special precautions that are specific to this contract Enclosure
Removal of Asbestos Boarding Amosite Good 3.00m² Porch/Store cupboard – front of property Wall sockets in property which will be connected through an RCD plug adapter. 5 gallon plastic water containers, drainage into water containers and disposed of into nearest foul drain. Supervisor must carry out full decontamination unit checks as per site diary Transit procedures – operatives to transit from working area to decontamination unit parked as close to working area as possible. Refer to company procedures. A pre-clean is always good practice around and underneath the AIB panels but there are no immediate concerns on this contract. Supervisor to make his preliminary checks and fill out the paperwork necessary for this stage. None None other than those in the risk assessment
3 stage metal airlock, 3 x 1m x 1m x 2m high each stage built with1000g blue-tint polythene and 3” cloth tape. The enclosure will be built using existing walls and timber struts if required to give adequate support. NPU will be incorporated outside the enclosure. Viewing panels will be used to monitor inside of work area. Double sheet anywhere where there is a risk that human traffic could tear the sheeting. All electrical items should be sufficiently waterproofed with polythene. Signs should be prominent. Outside the airlock should be a first-Aid box, claxton and fire extinguisher as well as outside man’s half-face mask box for storage with cap. Once enclosure is complete a full smoke test must be carried out and timed for clearance. If the enclosure does not full clear in 7 minutes then 10 air changes per hour have not been achieved and more negative pressure is required. Supervisor to record clearance times and make notes of NPUs that are not creating the clearances expected of their size.
Spectrochem wetting agent diluted with water applied by hand held bottle sprayers before during and after removal.
After successful smoke test is achieved operatives will enter enclosure via airlock using standard company procedure. They will thoroughly soak the boarding with fibre-suppressant at a rate of 1 litre per m². Operatives will then search for any fixings which he may be able to remove by shadow-vac techniques. If not they will carefully prize the boarding away from its mounting with long “stripping screwdrivers ensuring breakages are not made or minimised as far as reasonably practical. If they can prize away a little of the board and spray the back of the board then they should do so. Once the board has been removed he must place it straight into red waste sacks or wrap in 1000 gauge polythene and spray the mounting before removing all fixings and adhesive if it has been used. They must then thoroughly clean the enclosure with H-type vacuum and wet and dry rags. They will then check the area under torch light to ensure all asbestos has been removed. Red bags will be passed into airlock to be double bagged by outside man as per company procedures. Operatives will then vacuum themselves down, de-robe and decontaminate as they pass through the airlock as per company procedures.
The transit route will be the shortest possible distance from the airlock to the decontamination Unit.
The waste route will almost always be the same as the transit route.
Due to the nature of the work a full inspection of ever job may not be necessary. It is at the supervisor’s discretion whether he believes the operative is capable of carrying out the removal and cleaning to the standard expected. He will have supervised the removal via viewing panels and should know an operatives experience and standard. Periodic checks are expected if not on every contract of this size. Supervisor will have to follow full ingress and egress transit procedures including full decontamination as the enclosure is still live until stage 3 of the 4 stage clearance.
Once analyst has cleared the first 3 stages and has given permission to strike down operatives are to don half-face masks and white coveralls and spray all sheeting from bottle-sprayers before pulling down the sheeting and bagging it up in clear asbestos bags for disposal as hazardous waste. Then after analyst issues decontamination clearance cert they can dissemble the decontamination unit ready for transportation back to the works unit. Decontamination clearance cert should be kept within the unit in the clean end with shift sheets so it can be used wherever it is needed.
Supervisor will contact Vinci Facilities site manager and issue them the clearance certificate and sign off the Plan of work. This is a void property, so ensure the property is clean and tidy and all doors, windows are secure on completion.
