Community & Regulatory Services > Asbestos Register

Legislative Requirement

The Shire of Denmark as an employer has a responsibility to maintain a safe working environment under the provisions of:

  • Regulation 3.1a of the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996 (OSH Regulations 1996), which requires an employer to identify hazards at a workplace, assess the risk of harm to a person from each hazard and to take steps to reduce the risk.
  • Regulation 5.43 (OSH Regulations 1996) which specifically requires the presence and location of asbestos at a workplace to be identified and that the process of identification and risk assessment is conducted in accordance with the Code of Practice for the Management and Control of Asbestos in Workplaces [NOHSC:2018 (2005)].

Government Policy

The long-term aim is for all buildings occupied or controlled by government agencies to be free of ACM.

Whilst working towards this goal, agencies have an obligation to identify and manage ACM in public buildings to meet the Occupational Health and Safety requirements.

ACM in sound condition, left undisturbed, presents negligible risk to building occupants and the general community. Therefore removal of asbestos may not be immediately necessary but should take into consideration immediate health risks and be completed prior to demolition, partial demolition, renovation or refurbishment if these works are likely to disturb ACM.

Remaining ACM should be regularly inspected and actions taken to minimise health risk, where practical.

All work conducted on ACM must be undertaken in such a manner as to minimise health risks in accordance with the provisions of the Code of Practice for the Management and Control of Asbestos in Workplaces [NOHSC:2018 (2005)].
