ARCA can now confirm that HSE has published new guidance on Plans of Work

New guidance on Plans of Work, produced as result of recommendations from the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 Post Implementation Report (PIR) has now been published by HSE.

HSE have now given permission for this to be circulated to ARCA members.

This guidance is aimed at HSE inspectors to aid consistency when assessing the suitability of Plans of Work, but it is written to also be accessible to licensed contractors’ staff.  The guidance can be read alongside ALG memo 04/12, issued under the umbrella of the ALG industry forum.  The contents will eventually be included in the Licensed Contractors’ Guide (HSG 247) when revised.

This new guidance will be discussed at the remainder of the ARCA regional meetings.
