Asbestos Services

 University College London

ALS has worked for University College London since 1993.  During this time they have undertaken Management and R&D Asbestos surveys, provided full project management during asbestos removal programmes, undertaken supervision and air monitoring throughout asbestos removal project and presented asbestos training courses.  They are and have been UCL’s preferred consultant since that date.

The standard of service received has been extremely professional and I have no hesitation in recommending ALS

University of Kent

ALS has been working with the University of Kent for two years.

In this time they have been appointed as the University’s asbestos competent persons and not only provide analytical services, but also day to day advice on the general management of Asbestos Containing Materials.

What we have achieved together in the last two years:

  • Fully reviewed the UoK asbestos policy and associated guidance notes
  • Developed standards for asbestos removal specifications
  • Developed standards for methods of asbestos removal
  • Developed details schedules of rates for asbestos removal works
  • Developed, in conjunction with our preferred planning supervisors, a management system where all contract works identify asbestos as a hazard and the need for suitable and sufficient inspections.
  • Provide full on-site analytical staff to oversee all asbestos removal activities, this not only includes the legal minimum but goes further to conduct smoke test, personal monitoring and background monitoring throughout the removal phase.

Together we have come a long way in quite a short time.  The support from ALS staff is responsive and gives Estates Technical staff clear advice when conducting contract works.

Kodak Ltd

ALS was selected by Kodak Ltd in June 2003 to act as Asbestos Consultants for Kodak’s UK Manufacturing plants.  During this time ALS have worked closely with Kodak, completing asbestos surveys of our premises and assisting us to implement our Health, Safety and Environmental training program.

ALS is currently providing training on Asbestos Building Management and Safe Working for our building managers, supervising engineers and craft employees.

During our association I have found ALS to be very professional providing Kodak Ltd with an efficient, effective, quality service.

ALS is Kodak Manufacturing’s preferred HS&E (asbestos) training provider.
