Client: RFD Beaufort (SURVITEC)

Asbestos Services UK, were approached by a local repeat client RFD Beaufort (SURVITEC), the UK’s leading manufacturer to the MOD and beyond.

Survitec Group was formerly known as the Inflatable Systems Division of Wardle Storeys Ltd. Its history dates back to 1920, when RFD was formed and named after its founder - Reginald Foster Dagnall. In recent years, the company has continued to expand and evolve, both through the growth of market share, and through the acquisitions of other leading manufacturers and brands, including the acquisition of Beaufort, which can trace its foundations back to the 1850s.

Licenced Removal Task In Hand – 2 Phases

To remove, under fully controlled conditions, Asbestos Insulation Board (AIB) internal panels from lift shaft spanning 4 floors of the production dept, with minimal disruption to daily operations. AS immediately identified and implemented a 2 phase working program due to the fixed lift inside the shaft. Phase 1 was to work alongside lift engineers to prop the lift at 1st floor level to enable removal works to ground floor area of the lift shaft. On completion of this task it was safe for lift engineers to drop the lift to ground floor level to enable the upper 3 floors to be completed. HSE paid a random audit on this job and all was deemed satisfactory once again with minor issues addressed .

Dave Coleman, Managing Director of Asbestos Services UK commented: "Again, good planning and implementation of phased work enabled this contract to run smoothly, with good feedback from HSE."
