Do you own a business of commercial property?
The Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016 place a duty on businesses to have asbestos management plans in place for their buildings and workplaces where asbestos is likely to be found. An Asbestos Management Plan can be in electronic or written form but must include the following…
- Where the asbestos is located within the building.
- How the Asbestos Containing Materials will be managed, e.g. removed, encapsulated or left in good condition.
- If work is required that may expose the asbestos material a suitable procedure needs to be outlined.
- Timetable for managing the asbestos exposure. At minimum your asbestos documentation needs to be revised and reviewed every five years.
