Safe Work Australia has published a new guide: Asbestos registers at the workplace.
An asbestos register is a workplace safety management tool that records the location, type, condition and date of identification of all asbestos and asbestos containing materials at your workplace.
This guide has been developed to assist people who have management or control of a workplace with:
- the understanding of what an asbestos register is and if the workplace needs one
- developing and maintaining a comprehensive asbestos register
- understanding who are considered ‘competent persons’ in relation to identifying asbestos and collecting information for asbestos registers.
