22/05/17

With the imminent introduction of the revised Victorian Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 (due to come into force on 18th June 2017, www.worksafe.vic.gov.au/news/notices/ohs-regulations-reform-2017) now is a good time to ensure you are compliant with the Regulations relating to asbestos management.

As an employer there are a number of regulations that apply to the management of asbestos in your workplace however, the starting point would be to conduct a baseline asbestos survey as required under Regulation 4.3.20 of the current 2007 Regulations and Regulation 226 of the forthcoming 2017 Regulations.

Subdivision 2—Duties of persons who manage or control workplaces
226 Identification of asbestos
(1) A person who manages or controls a workplace must, so far as is reasonably practicable, identify all asbestos present that is under the person's management or control.
