Asbestos management plan

Health Protection is important to employers

An asbestos management plan is crucial for the safety and well-being of employees and individuals who may be exposed to asbestos-containing materials. The new asbestos abatement regulations of 2020 aim to ensure stricter adherence to safety protocols. Here are five reasons why every employer must follow these regulations and implement a robust asbestos management plan:

The management plan will help to reduce exposure risk in the case of accidents or incidents or when planned maintenance or repair works are planned.

This plan also must indicate the company's policies & procedures for phasing out asbestos at the workplace.


Here are 5 main reasons why?


Health Protection:

Asbestos fibers, when released into the air due to deterioration

or disturbance of materials, can be extremely hazardous when

inhaled. Prolonged exposure to asbestos is linked to serious health

issues such as lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. An effective

asbestos management plan helps prevent exposure and reduces the

risk of these life-threatening diseases among employees and visitors.

Legal Compliance:

Regulatory agencies impose strict guidelines to minimize asbestos

exposure in the workplace. Adhering to the new asbestos abatement

regulations of 2020 ensure that your organization remains compliant

with legal requirements, thereby avoiding potential fines, penalties,

and legal liabilities.

Liability Mitigation:

By having a comprehensive asbestos management plan in place,

employers demonstrate their commitment to employee safety and

health. This not only protects employees but also reduces the

company's liability in case of legal disputes related to asbestos exposure.

Environmental Protection:

Asbestos materials, if not properly managed, can release fibers into the

environment, impacting air and water quality. Proper management and

abatement procedures reduce the risk of environmental contamination,

supporting sustainable and responsible business practices.

Reputation and Employee Morale:

Employers who prioritize the well-being of their employees and

adhere to stringent safety standards create a positive reputation. This

can attract and retain skilled workers, boost employee morale, and

enhance the overall workplace environment.
