§ Mr. Pearson
The legislation that applies in such circumstances is as follows:
- 1. The Health and Safety at Work (Northern Ireland) Order 1978
- 2. The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1995
- 3. The Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2003; and
- 4. The Asbestos (Licensing) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1984
The Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) is the enforcing authority for the above legislation in relation to a wide range of work premises, including schools. HSENI adopts a risk-based approach to carrying out inspections of asbestos removal operations and insist on a very high standard of compliance with statutory provisions in relation to all such work.
