What is a Marine Asbestos Management Plan?

Ship or marine asset specific Asbestos Management Plans (AMP) provide details of how the asbestos on your vessel, identified or presumed, is to be managed during the period between identifiaction (during the IHM survey) and removal.

An asbestos management plan identifies and details the risk posed by asbestos present on a particular vessel or asset and sets out the procedures and persons responsible for controlling those risks.

What should be included in my Ship or Marine Asset Asbestos Management Plan?

The management plan will typically include information on;

  • Roles & responsibilities 
  • Policies and procedures for day-to-day operations, refurbishments, specialist works and emergencies
  • Risk assessments of each occurrence of asbestos 
  • Action plan for monitoring of asbestos (re-inspections) 
  • Training requirements for roles and personnel based on their responsibilities

The plan should be reviewed every twelve months (minimum) to ensure that changes in the organisation are considered and accounted for i.e. change in management structure, personnel and responsibilities.
