Employment and Labour on Asbestos Management Plan – 8 Aug 2022

While the Asbestos Abatement Regulations 2020 do not prescribe a cut-off date for the removal of any asbestos-containing material in workplaces, it is the duty of every employer to have a management plan in place, says the Department of Employment and Labour.

Addressing stakeholders on the Asbestos Abatement Regulations, the department’s Occupational Health & Hygiene specialist, Elize Lourens, said every organisation needs to develop its own policy and target date to remove the asbestos.
