Southampton General Hospital – Case Study
Envirochem work very closely with the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust and their chosen contractors to assist in the management of asbestos containing materials within all buildings owned and managed by the trust.
For the past few years we have assisted the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust in the management of asbestos containing materials identified within the various premises owned and managed by the trust. This has included the sampling of suspected asbestos containing materials, undertaking surveys of areas due to be refurbished and carrying out air monitoring associated with asbestos removal and remediation projects. Due to the nature of working within a fully operational hospital this work often has to be undertaken outside of normal working hours and generally has to be completed within limited timeframes. Due to the nature of working within a hospital environment and the very specific scope of the projects involved in doing so, we have a dedicated project manager who is actively involved in all projects at the hospital. This enables a highly tailored and personalised service based on our customer relationship management strategies to be provided to the client. Another element that we are involved in is ensuring that the electronic system utilized by the client to aid the management of all identified asbestos containing materials across their portfolio of premises is up to date. To achieve this, a number of our employees, including our dedicated project manager, have undergone specialised training on the electronic management system. This has allowed us to aid our client in updating the system, ensuring the details are current and accurate at all time and further enhancing the personalised and tailored service we provide.
