People working with asbestos can be exposed to dangerous dust fibres while inspecting, removing, transporting and disposing of soil. This guide explains how to minimise exposure to asbestos, explaining:

  • the regulations to supply, store, transport and sell soil containing asbestos
  • who is responsible for inspecting soil
  • who can remove asbestos from contaminated soil
  • how to transport and dispose of asbestos contaminated soil

At the end of the guide, there is also an example of a soil inspection statement.
