All you Need to Know About Asbestos Containing Materials Legislation in Queensland
Owners of commercial buildings need to be aware of ACM audit re-inspection dates to ensure they remain compliant.
Did you know? A person with management or control of a workplace must ensure any asbestos in the building is first of all identified. The location of the asbestos then needs to be clearly recorded in a register, and then supported with a written asbestos management plan.
A quick overview of asbestos containing materials legislation in Queensland:
- Asbestos registers are required for buildings that were constructed ‘prior to December 31st 1989’.
- The ACM’s – or asbestos containing materials – need to be identified by a competent person who has acquired thorough training, and possesses the qualification and/or skill to carry out this task (such as a licensed asbestos assessor).
- As per Queensland Government legislation, asbestos registers need to be maintained. This means you need to be aware of the ACM audit re-inspection dates that relate to your building, which currently sits at a maximum period of 5-year intervals.
