COMMERCIAL & NON-RESIDENTIAL 

 

ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT HANDBOOK FOR COMMERCIAL & NON-RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES

The Handbook is a comprehensive guide providing information on the roles and responsibilities of property owners, managers, contractors, sub-contractors, foreman and workers.  It features easy to follow step-by-step instructions on how to develop and implement policies and procedures to assist in identifying and managing asbestos safely and in accordance with regulations.  It includes a list of property types across multiple sectors including government, business (high rise, mid-rise, low rise), industrial, agriculture, recreation, education and more.  The Handbook that explains complex information in user-friendly, accessible terms is complemented by Fact Sheets and Templates. The Handbook also features images of asbestos-containing products commonly found in commercial and non-residential properties. 


ASBESTOS REGISTER TEMPLATE

The Asbestos Register is one of the most important documents required to manage asbestos safely.  The Template can be downloaded in Excel enabling users to note the locations and types of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) found in properties, the areas where ACM is suspected but not confirmed, if and when testing has been conducted; and, if ACM has or is to be removed.


MODEL ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PLAN (AMP) GUIDE TEMPLATE

While the Handbook provides instructions and recommendations for developing an Asbestos Management Plan (AMP), this Template is a user-friendly guide that lists the various steps required to meet mandatory requirements.  The Template is pre-prepared in Word and incorporates all the information required to ensure asbestos is managed safely and in accordance with regulations.


ASBESTOS REMOVAL RECORD TEMPLATE

The Asbestos Removal Record Template enables users to record the removal of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) found in properties.


WORKERS TRAINING REQUIREMENTS & RECORDS TEMPLATE

It is a mandatory requirement that all workers who may come into contact with asbestos must be trained to identify and manage asbestos and ACMs in accordance with regulations, and to ensure they understand the risks and procedures required to manage asbestos safely.  All training of workers must be recorded and maintained for five years after employment has ceased.  The Template can be downloaded in either Excel or Word to assist managers in recording all staff training in accordance with regulations.


MODEL ASBESTOS POLICY FOR CONTRACTORS & BUILDERS TEMPLATE

The Model Asbestos Policy Template is designed to assist contractors and builders to initiate asbestos safety policies in their workplace.  The Template can be downloaded in Word to enable managers or business owners to incorporate a logo, company name and any additional information they wish to include as part of their Asbestos Policy.


MODEL ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PROCEDURES FOR CONTRACTORS & BUILDERS TEMPLATE

Asbestos Management Procedures are an essential part of an AMP.  The Template is designed to provide contractors and builders with the resources they need to ensure their asbestos management procedures are effective to minimise exposure of asbestos fibres among workers.


FACT SHEET C1 – UNEXPECTED ASBESTOS, ACM FINDS OR INCIDENTS PROCEDURES FLOW CHART

The Flow Chart provides a user-friendly, step-by-step visual guide to managing unexpected asbestos finds in accordance with regulations which can be displayed in the workplace and issued to workers as part of their training.


FACT SHEET C2 – UNEXPECTED ASBESTOS FINDS OR INCIDENTS 

Unexpected asbestos finds pose a threat to workers so it’s vital that they are trained in the steps required to minimise exposure to asbestos fibres.  This Fact Sheet provides guidance and step-by-step procedures for managing unexpected finds or incidents and where possible, what is required to minimise any future risks.


FACT SHEET C3 – ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS AND GUIDELINES

The Asbestos Management Recommendations & Guidelines Fact Sheet provides users with user-friendly information for the safe management of asbestos in commercial and non-residential properties which may be issued to workers as part of their training program.


FACT SHEET C4 – USING PPE AND RPE

Knowing when, why and how to use and lawfully dispose of PPE and RPE is critical to workers who may come in contact with asbestos on the job.  This Fact Sheet provides step-by-step instructions on how to use and dispose of PPE and RPE in accordance with regulations.


FACT SHEET C5 – ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF ASBESTOS AND ACM
