For confirmed fibrous materials, it is necessary that labels be affixed to them to warn the staff and even visitors of the potential hazard. It’s thus necessary that the AMP indicate the person/s who will be responsible for taking reasonable steps to label and record the fibrous material in a register and other management roles and responsibilities.

The individuals in charge must be responsible for informing everyone in the building premises of the presence of the fibre, its health risk, suitable control measures and safe work methods.

Furthermore, the plan should indicate how your firm intends to implement appropriate control measures depending on the severity of the situation as well as manage and monitor fibrous materials. This could include:

  1. Monitoring arrangements,
  2. imposing a restriction to areas with potential health risk from exposure
  3. and hiring a licensed contractor to remove the fibrous materials.

You may also try to control the fibres through encapsulation. This involves enclosure by sealing or using other physical barriers until all the ACM in the workplace are removed.

It is also vital to incorporate in the plan the procedures how to totally remove ACM as well as details of maintenance or service work.

To sum it up, the AMP should give full information on the company’s objectives in relation to dealing with the potential health hazard in the workplace. It must also state:

  • What?
  • When?
  • How it’s going to be done?
  • Who is responsible for what?

It also goes without saying that a timetable for action must be attached to the AMP. It must clearly state the priorities, dates for inspection and review of risk assessments as well as some certain occurrences that could affect the timetable.
