Before Starting Work.

Before working on any building built or refurbished before the year 2000, any asbestos in the building should be identified by bulk sampling and analysis, through and accredited laboratory. If asbestos products are expected to be affected by the works, they must be removed.

Before you start work, you must:

  • Attend the site induction.
  • Make sure you are aware of the location of any asbestos remaining in the building (some may have been removed).
  • Make sure you are aware of any areas of the building that have not been checked.
  • Do not work on any asbestos materials.
  • Do not work in any areas that have not been checked.
