Asbestos

Asbestos Registers

Council maintains a system of asbestos registers for all Council owned and leased buildings. Council's asbestos register program covers the identification of suspect materials through inspection, testing of suspect materials, creation of registers, maintenance of registers and re-inspection on an annual basis in all buildings. Where a building contains asbestos, a register must be displayed and suspect materials must be labelled. Council is committed to raising awareness about asbestos issues with all groups/organisations using Council's buildings. Council will assist these groups to identify the asbestos products in the building and facilitate the safe handling procedures for asbestos. Asbestos registers have identified the location, the extent and type of asbestos contained within all buildings on Council property.
