Employers who own their premises

If you have management or control of the workplace then you have specific legal responsibilities related to asbestos.

Even if you engage a property manager, these legal duties still apply to you.

Employers also have additional duties in relation to managing asbestos. For example, employers have a duty to consult under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 in relation to managing and removing asbestos in their workplace
