Asbestos Removal Regulations
Why do you need to clean up Asbestos?
The presence of asbestos in a commercial establishment or industrial site continues to be alarming, for it exposes people to a variety of health risks. As the property owner or manager, you have legal responsibilities to maintain safety within your premises.
Asbestos cement products such as roof sheeting that has been subjected to weathering and severe damage due to hail, heat, fire, or other mechanical actions. As these products are friable, the most reasonable thing to do is to call licensed specialists in commercial asbestos removal.
Who is considered the controller of the premises?
The “person with control” according to the Code of Practice for the Management and Control of Asbestos in Workplaces [NOHSC:2018(2005)] may be:
- The owner of the establishment, site, or facility
- The person who is under any contract or leasing agreement to maintain or repair the property
- The person who occupies the premises
- The person who can make decisions about work or activities undertaken at the premises
- The employer at the premises
People with control of premises have the obligation to:
- Create, implement, and maintain a management plan for asbestos.
- Conduct an investigation of the premises regarding the presence or possible presence of materials containing asbestos.
- Produce and maintain asbestos registers of the identified or presumed materials that have this fibrous mineral, including details on the condition, locations, risk assessments, accessibility, and control measures.
- Develop measures to eliminate asbestos-containing materials or at least minimise risks and prevent asbestos exposure.
Ensure such measures are implemented as soon as possible, and properly maintained as long as the materials with asbestos remain in the workplace.
