Audits / Registers
If you manage, own, or control a workplace, it is your responsibility to ensure an asbestos register is prepared, maintained, and always kept at the workplace. The purpose of the asbestos register is that all relevant personnel are aware of the location and condition of asbestos containing materials within the building and if any action needs to be undertaken to ensure the safety of all employees, general public and all persons involved. The work health and safety and state-based work safe/workplace health and safety regulations require that owners of workplaces must keep an accurate register of asbestos-containing materials. All commercial properties built before the 31st of December 2003 require an asbestos register.
