Client Story

We can help with procedures too

After a client discovered significant use of asbestos gaskets throughout their extensive steam pipe network, they needed a cost effective solution for allowing their workers to perform maintenance on the system without bringing in external contractors every time they went near asbestos gaskets. The workers were very skilled at maintaining their system but did not have the knowledge of how to work around asbestos materials safely. Paul was able train their staff in controls required to undertake asbestos related work and to develop a standard operating procedure for the staff to follow. This allowed the staff to have confidence in the work they were doing and keep themselves and their co-workers safe while doing it.
