Asbestos

Find out what to do if you think a business premise has asbestos.

You might be responsible for checking for asbestos of a business premise if you're a:

  • landlord
  • tenant
  • manager

What you must do

  • if you have a lease or contract, check who is responsible for asbestos
  • find out where the asbestos is (you'll probably need an external accredited surveyor to carry out an asbestos survey)
  • have the material analysed and keep a record of what you find.
  • carry out a health and safety risk assessment
  • share the information with anyone likely to come into contact with the area for example builders
  • keep anything containing asbestos in good repair or have it sealed or removed.

Fines

Variable, depending on the type of asbestos.
