Asbestos Management Plans
What is an Asbestos Management Plan
Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 refers to the duty necessary to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises. It requires every non-domestic property to have an asbestos management plan. This must contain up to date information about the presence and condition of any asbestos in the building.
That’s where we can help. We’ll create and provide you with a specific asbestos plan tailored to your business.
An asbestos management plan is designed to register and detail how asbestos will be managed in a property and what work will be carried out to ensure people remain safe from asbestos exposure. Whilst asbestos management plans are essential for places of work, regular employees and for contractors, they are also available to residents and tenants.
What We Provide
Following your asbestos survey, we will complete a written asbestos management plan. It will set out our findings in a clear and concise way, including how the asbestos risks within your buildings and assets will be controlled.
The information in the plan will include:
→ Who is responsible for managing asbestos
→ The asbestos register
→ Plans for work on asbestos materials
→ The schedule for monitoring the materials condition
What is an Asbestos Register?
The asbestos register is a document that lists all identified – or assumed – asbestos in a workplace. The person with management or control of a workplace must ensure an asbestos register is prepared and kept at the workplace. Your asbestos management plan will need to record your regular monthly monitoring of the condition of asbestos materials present in your building and whenever work affects asbestos materials.

Asbestos Legal Requirement
It is a legal requirement for all workplaces liable to contain asbestos under the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 to have an asbestos management plan. It is a document that is crucial for the safety of building occupiers and for minimising the risk presented by asbestos.
The person in charge of the building (the duty holder) has a responsibility to identify, locate and manage asbestos in any non-domestic building.
Asbestos management plans will detail all changes in risks to your non-domestic premises and recommendations for any additional control measures that may be required. It can be written or held as a computer-based record.
Purpose Of Document
The duty holder of your property is responsible for ensuring the asbestos management plan is implemented and kept up-to-date. Your asbestos management plan must be accessible to anyone who may come into contact with the asbestos containing materials, e.g. building contractors.
