This revised guidance note will give you all the practical guidance you need on this widespread and hazardous material. Whether you are conducting a survey or giving advice, you must be aware of your obligations, the regulatory requirements in force and the penalties for non-compliance.

The Control of Asbestos at Work 2006 brings together the three previous sets of Regulations covering the prohibition of asbestos, the control of asbestos at work and asbestos licensing. The revised regulations will strengthen overall worker protection by reducing exposure limits and introducing mandatory training for work with asbestos. They will also simplify the regulatory regime and implement revisions to the EU Asbestos Worker Protection Directive.

In particular, the revised regulations introduced specific mandatory training requirements for anyone liable to be exposed to asbestos, which includes anybody who carries out work, such as surveys, in a building with asbestos containing materials where there is a potential exposure hazard.

This practical guide will help you understand the dangers to health and business, protect your PI insurance, comply with the latest legislation and regulations and implement an effective management plan.
