Asbestos management plans

Regulation 4 of The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 requires duty holders to manage asbestos in non-domestic properties.


Who has the duty?

The dutyholder is the owner of the non-domestic premises or the person or organisation that has clear responsibility for the maintenance or repair of

non-domestic premises.

What is the duty?

The duty to manage asbestos requires the dutyholder to:

  • take steps to find out if there are asbestos containing materials in non-domestic premises, and if so, its amount, location and condition(asbestos management survey),

  • presume materials contain asbestos until proven otherwise

  • keep updated record of the location and condition of the asbestos containing materials or materials which are presumed to contain asbestos

  • assess the risk of anyone being exposed to fibres from the materials identified

  • prepare, review and update risk management plan 

  • make information available on the location and condition of the materials to anyone who is liable to work on or disturb them

 

At SafetyStop we are able to create an Asbestos Management Plan allowing duty holders to comply with CAR12 therefore avoiding costly investigations and prosecutions.

If you are unsure about whether certain materials contain asbestos, you should presume they do and treat them as such.
Asbestos is only dangerous when disturbed. If it is safely managed and contained, it  doesn't present a health hazard
