AUST A Work Health Safety asbestos register is a document that must be accessible to all personnel on site (building occupants). The asbestos register must contain following information such as, all asbestos containing material (ACM) that has been identified, the date the ACM was identified and the type, condition and location of the ACM. The asbestos register must also identify when the ACM was last inspected.
Work Health and Safety Assessors advise that the Asbestos Register must clearly indicate and identify asbestos at a workplace. It must be maintained up to date and reviewed at least once every five years, readily available for workers at the workplace.
/ ASBESTOS REGISTER AUDITS
Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) is present in many existing buildings, and most building owners and managers would be aware that there is risk associated with the use of these materials and require asbestos register audits. Work Place Safety Assessors perform asbestos register audits on behalf of the client to ensure compliance with legislation.
To mitigate these risks, from January 2012, more stringent safety regulations apply where ACM is present in buildings, workplaces or sites, and it is mandatory for an Asbestos Containing Material and Asbestos Register Audits to be obtained when releasing or selling the building to comply with Workplace Health & Safety.
