Asbestos

Manage asbestos for employers who don't own their premises

If you identify asbestos under your management or control in your workplace:

  • Check its condition. For example: if the asbestos is in good condition and left undisturbed, it is usually safer to leave it fixed or installed and review its condition over time.
  • If the asbestos has deteriorated, for example asbestos-contaminated dust is present or it is likely that airborne asbestos fibres may be released into the air, then you must control the risk, for example by removing the asbestos.

Consider the steps below to manage the asbestos in your workplace.
