Asbestos management

Home > Risk management > Occupational safety and health

Although the manufacturing and use of asbestos products was banned from 31 December 2003, due to the age of your buildings, there is the real likelihood that they contain asbestos. Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material that was widely used in both building and commercial applications. Asbestos fibres can cause disease such as asbestosis, lung cancer and malignant mesothelioma.

Common areas that you may find asbestos include cladding, eaves, roof sheeting, electrical switchboards, sheds and wet area walls.

OSH legislation requires you to have a competent person identify the presence of and location of asbestos in your workplace and accommodation dwellings.

We are able to assist you with this as well as working with you to:

  • Develop an asbestos register
  • Undertake risk assessments 
  • Develop an asbestos management plan
