Harris Brushes

Franks Portlock was commissioned by prestigious paint brush and decorating tools manufacturer Harris Brushes, to conduct an asbestos management survey at its premises in Worcerstershire.

We conducted a management survey at Harris Brushes to find any asbestos within premises that could be accessible through normal building occupancy, for example via basic maintenance and installation work. The building dates back to the mid-1900s and has been extensively refurbished and extended over the years. Despite all types of asbestos being banned in 1999, some buildings may still contain lower risk materials such as textured coatings or vinyl floor tiles; or high risk materials such as asbestos cement and even insulating board.

A pre-survey meeting was setup in order to provide the most accurate price possible and also to highlight access issues that might ultimately hold up the survey once underway.

The survey was completed smoothly and successfully over a period of 4 days, with follow-up awareness training based on our findings to ensure that the organisation remains fully compliant.

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.
