Have you ever wondered what an Asbestos Management Plan is, and whether you might need one?
Asbestos Management Plan is a legislative document that aids the duty holder in the decision-making process to reduce the risk of exposure to asbestos.
It outlines all the key control measures for the lifecycle of asbestos containing material so that the risk is mitigated. From reviewing the risk, labelling, training through to remediation it provides guidance and enables the user to implement suitable controls, as necessary.
Often asbestos management plans cover some of the following topics:
- background and statutory requirements;
- asbestos management plan context and objectives;
- asbestos management policy;
- asbestos management structure, roles and responsibility;
- controls measures;
- workplace consultation through training and inductions;
- procedures for unexpected finds and accidental disturbance;
- asbestos register.
Without an asbestos management plan, you are non-compliant with regards to legislative requirements and at risk of a prohibition notice from the regulator. In addition, employees, subcontractors, and other stakeholders are not provided suitable information to undertake their activities, which heightens the risk of exposure to asbestos.
