Asbestos can be in schools, houses, and commercial buildings – how to manage the risks

Legislation requires property owners and managers to assess premises for the presence of asbestos containing materials and manage the associated risks.

The use of asbestos in the UK ceased in 2000, however there is still a large percentage of properties, built prior to this date containing asbestos; schools, hospitals, housing, commercial buildings.

Duty holders need to understand the risks from asbestos and their legal responsibilities to manage those risks.
