Asbestos

Despite being banned in 2003, thousands of buildings and machinery parts still contain asbestos. 

Breathing in asbestos fibres can cause asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma. 

If there is any asbestos in your workplace, you must manage the risks. This includes keeping an asbestos register and having an asbestos management plan

To remove asbestos, you need special training and a licence.
