Policy clarification: Meeting the duty to indicate the presence and location of asbestos at work
This policy clarification explains our view of the duty to indicate the presence and location of asbestos and asbestos-containing material (ACM) in the workplace. It includes situations in which asbestos and ACM are assumed to be present.
The duty is set out in section 12 of the Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016 (the regulations). It is separate from the duties relating to the disposal of asbestos waste and contaminated personal protection equipment, which include a requirement to indicate asbestos (section 40).
You should read this policy clarification if you are a:
- person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) that manages or controls a workplace
- facilities manager
- plant manager
- commercial property manager.
