Asbestos

Find and identify asbestos for employers who don't own their premises

The owner or manager with management or control of your business premises has legal duties in relation to managing and removing asbestos at your workplace.

It is important to consider whether you still have any management or control over parts of the workplace or plant that may contain asbestos.

Even without management or control of your workplace, as an employer you must, so far as is reasonably practicable eliminate the exposure of any person at your workplace to airborne asbestos fibres, arising from the undertaking of your work. If it is not reasonably practicable to eliminate the exposure, you must reduce the exposure, so far as is reasonably practicable.

The following steps will assist in meeting these duties
