Asbestos Management Team

"... the University is achieving ‘best’ practice in its asbestos management that goes beyond the ‘good’ practice required by statute. In this regard, I believe that the University is a model for how asbestos should be managed in the education sector." - Martin Stear

The asbestos management team were awarded the EFM People Award for Best Team 2014/15.

Asbestos used to be an important building material but is not used anymore. Before we purchase an existing property or you ever enter one of our buildings our asbestos management team will have ensured that it is safe and fit for use.

What the asbestos management team are extremely proud of is a quote from their recent review by Martin Stear which states, "I believe that the University is achieving ‘best’ practice in its asbestos management that goes beyond the ‘good’ practice required by statute. In this regard, I believe that the University is a model for how asbestos should be managed in the education sector."

Asbestos Management Plan Aims & Objectives

The Asbestos Management Plan has been prepared in order to document the management procedures which the University of Sheffield have put in place in order to manage the risk presented by asbestos within the portfolio.

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (Regulation 4) requires every duty holder to prepare a plan that sets out in detail how the risks presented by asbestos containing materials (ACMs) will be managed. This document discharges this responsibility.
