Asbestos in the workplace

Asbestos in the workplace is subject to the legal requirements of the Health and Safety at Work, etc., Act 1974 and to the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.

Anyone who is responsible for maintenance and repairs in non-domestic buildings has a legal ‘duty to manage’ any asbestos in that building. The HSEs brief guide ‘Managing asbestos in buildings’ provides current guidance and advice.

For further advice contact the Food and Safety Team. Officers in this team are responsible for enforcing health and safety in most commercial premises in Slough.
