The revised HSW Handbook Chapter “Asbestos Management” has now been posted on the HSW Website.
The key changes to the chapter for noting are:
- References to Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) have been incorporated through-out the chapter
(as per the WHS legislation) and combined under the one heading. (To remove the duplication.)
- The requirement for Schools to have their own Asbestos Management Plan for NOA has been removed as it is included in the Infrastructure Asbestos Management Plan. (This will assist Schools to meet legislative compliance and reduce administration.)
- Service Delivery will manage every aspect of Asbestos from discovery; to management of content; to removal; to records management.
Should you wish to discuss any of the changes or requirements please do not hesitate to contact your Senior HSW Advisor.
