Asbestos Management – Two Key Points to Consider

HS RoofClad

In 2012, the regulations around the ‘Control of Asbestos’ changed regarding the exposure to asbestos in commercial, industrial and social environments. The main changes to regulations involved non-licensed ACM’s (Asbestos Containing Material) and the measures that must be in place to safely test, remove, or encapsulate this string of asbestos.

Where is asbestos found?

If your building was constructed in or after 2002, it should not include asbestos. However, if before 2002, asbestos could be found in:

  • Fire breaks
  • Fire boards
  • Thermal insulation
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Insulation of electrical equipment
  • Roofing materials
  • Floor tiles
  • Rainwater systems
  • Textured coatings

Who is responsible?

Something to give serious consideration to, is where different responsibilities lie. What is the licenced contractor who is completing the works responsible for? What is the main contractor controlling the site’s responsibility? What is the client/building owner responsible for? It is imperative to know who is responsible for what, to ensure nothing is missed and regulations around asbestos are upheld.
