8 Steps to managing asbestos safely

1 – take reasonable steps to find out if there are materials containing asbestos in non-domestic premises, and if so, its amount, where it is and what condition it is in;  2 – presume materials contain asbestos unless there is strong evidence that they do not;  3 – make, and keep up to date, a record of the location and condition of the asbestos containing materials or materials which are presumed to contain asbestos;  4 – assess the risk of anyone being exposed to fibres from the materials identified;  5 – prepare a plan that sets out in detail how the risks from these materials will be managed;  6 – take the necessary steps to put the plan into action;  7 - periodically review and monitor the plan and the arrangements to act on it so that the plan remains relevant and up-to-date;   and 8 – provide information on the location and condition of the materials to anyone who is liable to work on or disturb them.
