The HSE has today, 16 January 2024, launched a new campaign to highlight the risk of asbestos in buildings and raise awareness of the legal duty to manage those risks. View here.
The campaign targets those responsible for managing asbestos in a building (dutyholders).
The dutyholder could be the building owner, the landlord for the premises, the business owner or the person or organisation with clear responsibility for the building's maintenance or repair. The duty applies to a range of non-domestic buildings including premises like factories, warehouses, offices and shops; and public buildings like hospitals, schools, premises used for religious worship, museums and libraries.
The HSE website has recently been updated to include further guidance and documentation to support dutyholders in exercising their obligations.
The campaign suggests the management of the risk of asbestos will be a central focus of the HSE over the coming months.
