Part 3 of this 3-part series by TSI Product Manager Myles Quigley focuses on the Dust Management Plan or DMP.
A key part of the Dust Management Plan (DMP) is the mitigation measures that will be taken in relation to the level of risk that has been identified. In order to detail what these will be, a summary of the overall risks needs to be completed.
Table 10 on page 22 of the IAQM guide (https://iaqm.co.uk/text/guidance/construction-dust-2014.pdf) gives an example of this. High, medium, low risk categories are used to determine which of the mitigation measures listed page 24 onwards should be implemented.
BEFORE SUBMITTING THE DUST MANAGEMENT PLAN
Prior to submitting the DMP the competent person(s) should check to see if the local authority has a Code for Construction Practice and incorporate this into the mitigation measures. A good example of a CCP can be found here https://www.westminster.gov.uk/code-construction-practice. Further recommendations on how monitoring should be carried out can be found in these documents. Number 12 on the list of mitigation measures refers to dust monitoring, if a risk is medium or high, then it is highly desirable to have some form of monitoring agreed with the local authority.
