Managing asbestos for employers who own their premises

If you identify asbestos 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 material.
