OHSS - The Meaning of Asbestos Safety & Management

8 Jan 2018

OHSS - The Meaning of Asbestos Safety & Management Asbestos and exposure to it, represents the single largest occupational health hazard of the modern age. At OHSS Safety Consultants, we provide guidance on all aspects of asbestos abatement, asbestos removal and asbestos disposal. With over 15 years of experience in the field, we are able to advise on compliance with the many asbestos regulations existing in Ireland.

So, to the title of the piece, what exactly is meant by the term ‘Asbestos safety & management’? Well, it refers to the development and implementation of strategies to ensure that any asbestos existing within any given premises is a) identified in a timely manner and b) managed in accordance to all regulations to ensure that no one’s safety is compromised.

Working With Us

With ISO17020 and ISO17025 accreditation (Governing Asbestos Risk Assessments & Asbestos Analysis in Bulk Materials), OHSS conforms to the very highest standards available in the industry.

Under the umbrella of asbestos management, there are a number of different disciplines that include:

Asbestos Monitoring - to enable implementation of measures to control any potential asbestos hazards that exist in your workplace. Air samples are taken before, during and after any building works that involve the disturbing of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs).

Asbestos Surveys - used to analyse and identify the presence of ACMs in buildings and ensure that they exist in accordance with current legislation.

Asbestos Fibre Monitoring - to identify the presence of the most harmful aspect of ACMs in the air and to take measures to mitigate risk to all personnel involved. Sampling and analysing air from the site provides the data our expert team need to take swift and appropriate action.

Our priority is and always has been to make workplaces in Ireland a safe and comfortable place to be.
