Prepare an asbestos management plan

If asbestos has been identified at your workplace, you must prepare and maintain an asbestos management plan, regardless of whether the asbestos is naturally-occurring or from manufactured materials.

Your plan must include:

  • reference (or a link) to the asbestos register, and signage and labelling
  • safe work procedures and control measures
  • incident and emergency procedures
  • consultation arrangements, responsibilities and training details of workers doing asbestos work.

You must review the plan at least every five years or when:

  • requested by a health and safety representative (HSR)
  • asbestos is removed, disturbed, sealed or enclosed.

The plan must be available to anyone involved in work at the workplace.
