Management Plans

Asbestos management plans Brisbane provides property owners and businesses with a register to alert residents, workers, staff and site visitors to the presence of asbestos. An asbestos management plan will include a detailed record of where asbestos has been detected and the dangers of exposure to asbestos.

As a property owner or workplace manager you must clearly set out aims and procedures around what is going to be done about the control measures and when they are to be carried out.

In many cases, an ongoing soft demolition or removal of asbestos will ensue.
