Dear Mr Smith,

 

TfL Ref: EIR-1481-2223

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 19^th
September 2022 asking for an asbestos survey report for Baker Street
station.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Environmental Information Regulations and our information access
policy.

 

I can confirm that we hold the information you require.

 

Please find attached the requested information for Baker Street Station.

Due to the age of the Underground, asbestos is found in a number of
locations on the network. However, in public areas the vast majority of
Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) are contained behind station finishes
and cannot be accessed by the general public. Where ACMs are found in
public areas, they are located where they cause no risk to the general
public or staff. All stations are re-inspected on a periodic basis to
ensure that no damage has been caused to change this status. If, in the
very rare case it is assessed and the status has changed for any reason,
then a risk assessment is undertaken which will result in either
encapsulation, encasement, or removal.

We have processes and procedures in place to ensure that the management of
asbestos is carried out in compliance with the Control of Asbestos
Regulations 2012. Some of the main requirements that London Underground
deliver under this regulation are listed below:

•           Identify the location and condition of hazardous materials
•           Maintain an asbestos register with known, presumed or strongly
presumed asbestos
•           Assess and manage the risk of exposure
•           Prepare, implement, review & monitor the management plan to
manage the risks
•           Regularly inspect known instances of asbestos
•           Provide information on the location and condition of the
material to anyone who is likely to disturb it
•           Carry out management, refurbishment and / or pre-demolition
surveys when required
•           Carry out airborne fibre monitoring where necessary
•           Maintain records detailing when and where asbestos is removed,
treated and disposed
•           Request and retain Waste Consignment Note upon transportation
of Hazardous Materials to Hazardous Waste Landfill site
•           Hold relevant Asbestos Management Qualifications

It is London Underground’s policy to continue to safely manage ACMs
in-situ, through continued management surveys, re-inspections, risk
assessments and pre-work Refurbishment & Demolition (R&D) surveys. We also
carry out airborne fibre monitoring for asbestos for reassurance during
work on or near to asbestos containing materials.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely,
