SWA releases guidance for workplace asbestos registers

Safe Work Australia has released a guide to help employers prepare an asbestos register for their workplace. People with management of control of a workplace are advised to ensure an asbestos register is prepared, maintained and readily accessible to other persons in the workplace.

The new guide is designed to help employers understand what an asbestos register is and determine whether or not it is needed. The guide will also help employers develop and maintain a comprehensive asbestos register that identifies asbestos in the workplace, and will also help employers understand who is considered a “competent person” in relation to identifying asbestos and collecting information for asbestos registers.
