Managing asbestos in the workplace can reduce workers’ exposure to dangerous dust fibres. This guide explains the steps to:

  • determine who is responsible for managing asbestos-containing material (ACM) in the workplace
  • identify asbestos in the workplace
  • create an asbestos register and share it with employers, employees, contractors and health and safety representatives
  • label ACM and control risks

At the end of the guide, there is also a checklist to identify if a workplace’s current asbestos management practices are up-to-date
