Frequently Asked Questions
What is an asbestos management plan?
What does the law say?
Who does this law apply to?
A wide range of people potentially have obligations under the control of asbestos regulations, including employers and the self employed, if they have responsibilities for maintaining or repairing non domestic premises , and the owner of those premises, whether they are occupied or vacant. In all these cases, regulation 4 of the Asbestos Regulations may apply, but the extent of the practical duties will be determined by contractual and other legal obligations towards the property. This is explored in more detail within Approved Code of Practice and Guidance L127 ‘The management of asbestos in non-domestic premises.
The law says YOU must:
- Take reasonable steps to find materials in premises likely to contain asbestos and check their condition.
- Presume that materials contain asbestos unless there is strong evidence to suppose they do not.
- Make a written record of the location and condition of asbestos and presumed asbestos containing materials and keep the record up to date.
- Assess the risk of the likelihood of anyone being exposed to those materials;
- Prepare a plan to manage that risk and put it into effect to ensure that;
- a) any asbestos containing materials known or presumed to contain asbestos is kept in a good state of repair;
- b) any asbestos containing materials that contains or is presumed to contain asbestos is, because of the risks associated with its location or condition, repaired or if necessary removed; and
- c) information on the location and condition of the material is given to anyone potentially at risk.
I have had an asbestos survey, does this manage my asbestos?
Managing asbestos is a legal requirement. An asbestos survey on its own does NOT fulfil your legal duty to manage asbestos!!!!!!!
