Classification: OFFICIAL

Dear Ms Stephens,

 

Thank you for your email dated 28/08/2016  where you requested
information about Schools that contain asbestos,

 

1. The names of the schools in your borough that contain asbestos?

 

Please see attached spreadsheet.  This lists schools which are known to
contain asbestos and where the council is the asbestos dutyholder.  

 

2. The date and outcome of the last independent audit  or inspection of
each of these schools Asbestos Management Plans?

 

Please see attached spreadsheet showing the date of the last council
inspection of asbestos containing materials.  Ongoing monitoring is
carried out by specially trained site staff and formal inspections carried
out by a dedicated council asbestos surveyor.  Each school has its own
asbestos management plan which is reviewed annually and updated where any
relevant changes occur.  In 2009 HSE sent questionnaires to local
authorities regarding the management of asbestos in system built schools. 
The London Borough of Enfield completed and returned this questionnaire.
 The council have no other records of any independent audits carried out
by the regulator (HSE) or other independent body in relation to asbestos.
   

 

3. The details of any reported incidents of asbestos exposure in these
schools between 2011 and 2016?

 

In accordance with The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous
Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) 1 asbestos incident/exposure was reported
to the HSE.  This occurred in Hazelbury Infants School and involved a
contractor potentially being exposed to asbestos in a loft which had
previously not been surveyed but subsequently found to be contaminated
with asbestos.  This incident occurred in 2010 but was reported by the
contractor (as the employer) in 2011.  Asbestos contamination has since
been removed by licensed asbestos specialists.  

 

 

4. The number of school employees (existing and retired staff to include
teaching staff, school support staff and caretakers, etc) that have
pursued a claim against you for exposure to asbestos within an Enfield
school?

 

 

None

 

5. The number of these claims that have been settled?

 

n/a

 

6. The amount of money that has been paid in settlement of these claims
(with and without your authority accepting responsibility).

 

n/a

 

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original letter and should be addressed to:

 

Complaints and Access to Information Team

Email – [1][email address]

 

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9
5AF

 

Kind Regards,
