  3. 3. The urgency of Asbestos Management Plan Sydney Asbestos-containing material (ACM) still exists in most buildings across Australia. Without a proper strategy, the people living or working in the location may accidentally expose themselves to the carcinogenic mineral. There are more than 2,500 victims identified for suffering from an Asbestos Related Disease (ARD) every year across the continent. Owning an asbestos register and practical control plan can help to build a better awareness to those who are doing their activities in the building. The urgency of having an AMP and also asbestos register document can be determined under several conditions.
  4. 4. 1. Homeowners and property managers A person who is responsible for the building maintenance must keep ACM register paper and a written plan. The documents have to be placed in a location that can be accessible for everyone, especially those who spend most of their time in the area. However, an asbestos register may not be required if the property: •was built after December 31, 2003 •hasn’t been identified for the fibrous material presence before, and •is not likely to contain the cancerous fibers over time Reference: estos-management-plan/
  5. 5. 2. If one or more ACMs have been found within your premises, then obtaining the documents is a must. The register is needed to list all ACMs that have been found and identified, while the AMP is necessary to arrange all preventive actions required in handling the contaminated products safely. The written strategy has to contain specific information as mentioned below: •Identification result of ACMs presence within the premises, including the product type, the location where it’s found, date of identification, and other supporting information that can be used to locate the ACMs. •Choice of action and reasons underlying the decision making. •Emergency protocols, along with the person who is responsible for performing the preventive measures. •Updated information, especially about the current condition of the ACMs. •Regular review in every five years or as requested by the Health and Safety officer or in any event where the ACMs may be disturbed or when the plan is no longer suitable for the current condition. •Adequate knowledge and training obligations for those who are directly working with the contaminated products.
  6. 6. 3. Legal responsibilities Under the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011, a homeowner or someone who’s in charge for a building maintenance must own documents regarding the deadly product presence on the premises. If the person fails to provide such documents, he may get a penalty of maximum $6,000 for individual and $30,000 for a corporate. The fine doesn’t include a remediation process if a contamination breach incident occurs. Reference: stos-management-plan/
