Many clients hold asbestos information for the built assets and they recognise that the management of this information is important for maintaining accurate and up to date records to meet regulatory requirements and reduce risks associated with exposure to asbestos containing materials.
While asbestos related information is commonly stored in hard copy reports or spreadsheets, new technology has seen many companies migrate asbestos data to more contemporary asset management technology.
The process of transitioning to new technologies can often encounter some data integrity issues with the historical records, and as a result a comprehensive process of data collation and review is required to maximise the value of old and new data together in one system.
The primary objective of a project like this is to improve the quality and accuracy of asbestos data maintained within an organisation to simplify reporting and safety processes.
CDM Smith has specialist Data Science and Technology experts who are experienced in these projects, bringing skills in data analytics, risk analysis, data visualisations, data collation/cleaning/management, database design, and the development of automated systems for reporting.
