CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

As all of our customers will be aware, the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic is likely to cause disruption to many services. Although everyone at Dandy is currently fit and well, restrictions that have been imposed, both voluntary and compulsory, have already begun to affect our supply chains. This is particularly true for our many overseas customers, where border and transport restrictions can be imposed at little notice. We will always try to keep you informed of any problems that may affect your order, but we ask for your understanding at this difficult time. If you have any questions, then please email us at enquiries@dandybooksellers.com, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Electronic products such as e-books and online subscriptions should be largely unaffected, but please allow us a little longer time than usual to respond.

This generic risk assessment (GRA) examines the hazards, risks and control measures relating to Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) personnel, the personnel of other agencies and members of the public at incidents involving asbestos containing materials (ACMs).

Depending on the nature and scale of the operational incident a variety of significant hazards may be present. FRS may therefore need to consider the contents of other specific GRAs in this series. The GRA should therefore be considered in conjunction with all other relevant GRAs.

FRSs must conduct their own assessments and produce their own Safe Systems of Work (which includes Standard Operating Procedures <Actinic:Variable Name = 'SOPs'/>, training programmes, provision of equipment, levels of response etc.) within the context of Integrated Risk Management Plans, local conditions, knowledge and existing organisational arrangements.
Significant hazards and risks

Asbestos is the generic name given to the fibrous forms of naturally occurring silicate minerals that have been used in commercial products (mainly in the construction industry) due to their high tensile strength, flexibility, low electrical conductivity, and resistance to heat and chemicals.

The three main types of asbestos are:
  • Crocidolite (blue)
  • Amosite (brown)
  • Chrysotile (white)
However, it is not possible to differentiate between them by their colour as all are ‘a dirty white’.
