What is an Asbestos Register?
The intent of an asbestos audit is to inspect the building/property to determine the type, location and condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and to compile these findings in an asbestos register. This is done by surveying materials used in the construction of the building and plant, including checking for what is held on the property as debris, redundant stock and equipment, including items such as Brake pads in lift motors, metal lathes etc.
Recommendations are made on the basis of the inspection findings to ensure the health and safety risks associated with asbestos are minimised. Recommendations including your legal requirements are recorded within the Asbestos Register with a convenient location (mud map) drawing in association with the location schedule.
