Fife Council

We have been working with Fife Council since 2010, and in that time have conducted over 10,000 asbestos surveys across the region and across Fife Council’s portfolio of properties.

The scope of our work for asbestos surveying is clearly defined and in-line with our regular procedures. However, reporting must be done to Fife Council’s own specification. Our flexible approach means we have created a system specifically for our clients’ requirements, which has been done by integrating the council’s template into our TEAMS (The Electronic Asbestos Management System) database.

TEAMS allows a highly traceable and auditable asbestos management system to record incoming enquiries, process site data and generate reports. Using tablet PCs, we can collect data at the site and send it back wirelessly to our head office in Sunderland. The system is highly accurate, flexible and uniformed in collecting data. This means we can issue urgent work to surveyors already in the field and significantly improve efficiency.

We carry out Clearance certification as part of licensed asbestos removal works and we also conduct reassurance air testing in response to both emergencies and the removal of non-licensed asbestos materials where the client requires it.

All our work for Fife Council, is undertaken by our team of technical experts who are based at our Scotland regional office, in Rosyth, Fife. The facility’s extensive capabilities, including its own in-house, UKAS-accredited, laboratory, allow us to do lab analysis of materials thought to contain asbestos, provide close and dynamic resourcing and efficiently manage the logistic of the project.

We are pleased to work with Fife Council and hope this is a long and continuing relationship.

During a recent review by our Health and Safety consultant, it was noted that a Legionella Risk Assessment was necessary for our studio. We contacted Franks Portlock who undertook a full review of the premises and provided us with a greater understanding of the UK regulations and requirements. Sean Green supplied us with a detailed Legionella risk assessment and offered pragmatic advice and guidance on the procedures required to remain compliant, the whole process was seamless from start to finish.. Sean attention to detail and dedication was faultless throughout the entire process and it was a pleasure to work with both him and the team.

The de Ferrers Trust

Six months ago, we instructed Sean and the team at Franks Portlock for their services in Water Hygiene and we have been blown away by the service he has provided us. We have a number of different schools on board with him that range from full water hygiene monthly management, to RA's and Annual services. When tendering we found that Frank's Portlocks cost were similar to what we were already paying, however the level of detail that the contract covers far outweighs any previous contract we've ever had. The Monthly meetings have made a massive difference in ensuring that faults and risk items are dealt with promptly and appropriately. As the person who oversees compliance across our trust, I no longer have to worry about the water hygiene compliance in our schools that use Franks Portlock.
