What is an Asbestos Management Plan?
The Control of Asbestos Regulations (2012) states that all duty holders with asbestos or presumed asbestos present in their premises must have an Asbestos Management Plan in place. The contents of which sets out a "Duty to Manage" plan for known or presumed asbestos so it can be strictly monitored and its potential danger can be kept to a minimum.
The vast majority of organisations make the assumption that once an asbestos management survey has been carried out thier legal duty in relation to the long term management of any asbestos items has been satisfied. Although the information obtained from an asbestos management survey forms an important part of the overall management plan it does not outline the how the risk from asbestos is controlled and communicated.
