Santia can work with you and your stakeholders from project inception to completion, ensuring full legislative compliance for asbestos removal and CDM, plus a number of other tangible business benefits.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR 2012) places substantial legal duties on those responsible for asbestos management and removal. Whilst the requirements for locating and assessing asbestos can be addressed by engaging experienced UKAS accredited consultants, the requirements for arranging necessary maintenance or removal works are far more extensive and complex.
The Santia Preferred Service Providers’ Scheme (SPSPS) helps our customers to overcome these challenges by providing a mechanism to confidently procure high quality, legally compliant asbestos maintenance and removal services from our approved list of HSE licensed contractors.
Santia have sub-contracted asbestos removal on behalf of its clients for more than 15 years.
Our processes for assessing the credentials and performance of the service providers have evolved and developed into a system which is now unique in the industry, and includes checks for: HSE licenses, statutory health and safety notices and prosecutions, insurances, training, accreditations and certifications, industry memberships, competency and qualifications of staff, financial status, management structure, key personnel and geographical capability.
The SPSPS enables the customer to appoint Santia to manage the whole process on your behalf to include:
Planning and project design
CDM services including Principal Designer and Principal Contractor
Production of a detailed specification
Management of the tender process
