Working Safely (Continued)

Despite being banned, asbestos is still present in the majority of buildings built or refurbished before the year 2000.

Even though an asbestos survey may have been carried out, and the asbestos removed, this does not guarantee that the building is free of asbestos:

  • A survey will rarely find all of the asbestos in the building
  • The quality of the cleanup following asbestos removal cannot be guaranteed

For this reason, you need to stay alert and if you discover suspect materials, stop work immediately and report to your supervisor.
