What is an Asbestos Management Plan?
An asbestos management plan helps with the management of buildings to prevent exposure to airborne asbestos fibres. A company must take reasonable steps, such as labeling and recording in a register, informing everyone on site where there is asbestos present and about potential consequences from exposure, and other appropriate controls.
The asbestos management plan must:
- Outline procedures in the event of asbestos related incidents and emergencies including who is responsible and for what.
- Information, consultation, and training responsibilities for workers carrying out asbestos related work.
- An outline of how asbestos risks will be controlled including the consideration of appropriate control measures.
- A timetable for managing exposure risk including dates and procedures for the review of the asbestos management plan and activities that could affect the timing of a review.
- Outline who is responsible for certain activities and their responsibilities.
- Include air monitoring procedures at the workplace, if required.
