Asbestos Risk Assessment Template
Did you know that as an employer you have a legal duty to ensure any asbestos in your workplace has been identified and managed?
Exposure to asbestos can cause life threatening illnesses such as Mesothelioma, Lung cancer and Asbestosis. These diseases are not always apparent, and can take years to develop, but once diagnosed it is often too late.
In the UK alone, 20 tradesmen die each week as a result of asbestos exposure.
Under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, all UK employers have a legal duty to manage any asbestos containing materials (ACM) in the workplace. If an asbestos risk assessment has not been conducted, along with the appropriate management and surveys, the employer will face prosecution from HSE for negligence.
Employers can face heavy fines, large compensation payouts and even jail time if they fail to abide by the asbestos regulations.
To protect your employees and your business from the risks which asbestos poses, you must ensure asbestos has been assessed and managed by a health and safety expert.
A competent person is required to have experience and knowledge of handling and assessing the risks which asbestos poses. If your business does not ensure a competent person has carried out the work then you could face heavy fines and prosecution.
