Who must Comply?… The Dutyholder,
for example this is the Owner, Occupier
or those responsible for the Control, Maintenance and Repair of all or part
of any non-domestic building used for any business function, this also
includes the common areas of residential rented properties. We all must
co-operate with the Dutyholder now and they must:
their building(s) and determine the risk from the asbestos & its
written plan identifying the areas of the premises concerned & the measures
necessary for managing the asbestos risk;
the measures in the plan; and
the measures taken to implement the plan.
safety in the workplace is an increasing concern, as asbestos in buildings
is ageing and becoming more dangerous. The health hazards of asbestos are
well known, and it is paramount that the removal of asbestos, or sealing it
safely, is given a very high priority. Every workplace must carry out an
asbestos survey and record the findings, if you need help with yours, the CD
