Construction design and management


Advice for contractors:

Accessing properties

All contractors and their staff must book in at the reception of any property they are working in.

They may be denied access if:

  • Asbestos awareness training certificates are not readily available. Contractor personnel should be able to produce these on request
  • A ‘Plan-in-Place’ confirmation (verifying that method statements prepared for works have been reviewed) is not available
  • The Plan in Place Procedures for Medium and High Risk Works has been established to control access to properties, especially for medium and high risk work activities. Contractors must submit all method statements to the maintenance officer for review. The maintenance officer will then confirm to the area housing and property business support that a ‘Plan-in-Place’ confirmation can be issued to the Responsible Premises Officer
