As we all know, the asbestos abatement regulations were implemented in Nov 2020, with a few changes.
The emphasis is now to create more awareness on asbestos in the workplace and to regulate asbestos better.
The big question everybody asks is - What is the responsibility of the employer?
The first step would be to identify if any asbestos is present at the workplace. Regulation 2 clearly emphasis that these regulations apply to every employer or self-employed person how may expose any person to asbestos dust at the workplace.
In regulation 3 the employer or self-employed person must, as far reasonably practicable ensure that:
all asbestos-containing materials at the workplace are identified by a component person.
if it's uncertain whether it's asbestos, either handle it asbestos or samples can be taken to analyze it at a laboratory.
if part of the workplace is inaccessible and considered by a competent person, assume that asbestos is present and handle it as asbestos.
If no asbestos is found in the workplace a certificate must be issued by a competent person that the workplace is free of asbestos.
