The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 apply to all types of work involving asbestos and materials containing asbestos. They place specific duties on employers and the self-employed. You must find out if materials containing asbestos are present. If possible, before you start, plan any work to avoid disturbing these materials. If you have to carry out work which may disturb materials containing asbestos, you must prevent exposure to asbestos fibres. Or where this is not reasonably practicable, reduce any exposure to as low as reasonably practicable by using appropriate control measures and having management systems in place. Anyone who is going to work on material containing asbestos must be suitably trained and supervised.
