Asbestos is found in a wide variety of materials within a building. If asbestos is disturbed, fibres could be released into the air and inhaled, causing future ill health.

To protect yourself, you must be 100% sure that the material you are working on does not contain asbestos. If there is even 1% doubt in your mind, stop work and ask your supervisor.

You must:
  • Follow the site rules and procedures.
  • Stop work and report to your supervisor if you suspect asbestos.
  • Protect yourself and your workmates from being expose to asbestos.
