    An asbestos register is a workplace safety management tool that records the location, type, condition and date of identification of all asbestos and asbestos containing materials at your workplace. 

    If you are a person with management or control of a workplace building, structure or plant built or installed before 2004, or in Queensland built before 1990, you must ensure that an asbestos register is prepared and kept at the workplace. 

    This guide will help you understand:

    • what an asbestos register is and when your workplace needs one, and
    • how to develop and maintain a comprehensive asbestos register.
