In accordance with the Health and Safety Executive’s document “Managing asbestos in buildings”. If your company works in a property that was built before 2000 then asbestos may be present. Companies have a legal responsibility to manage the risks from asbestos and to ensure they do not impact on their staff, customers or the public, if:
- You own the Building
- You are responsible for the building through a contract of tenancy agreement
- You have control of the building but no formal contract agreement; or
- In a multi-occupancy building, you are the owner and have taken responsibility for maintenance and repairs for the whole building.
