Asbestos registers at the workplace – new guide now published

Were the buildings, structures or plant equipment at your workplace built or installed before 2004, or if in Queensland before 1990? 

If you are the person with management or control of the workplace, you must ensure an asbestos register is prepared, maintained and readily accessible to other persons at your workplace.

Safe Work Australia have released a new guide to help you:

  • understand what an asbestos register is and if your workplace needs one,
  • develop and maintain a comprehensive asbestos register that identifies asbestos at your workplace, and
  • understand who are considered “competent persons” in relation to identifying asbestos and collecting information for asbestos registers. 

Go to the newly published guide: Asbestos registers at the workplace to download the guide today and know your duties.
