“Asbestos is the single greatest cause of work-related deaths in the UK ” - Health and Safety Executive.

The Duty to Manage Asbestos is contained in Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. It applies to non-domestic premises.

Its effect is to ascribe duties to persons in control of non-domestic properties in order to achieve two basic goals:

  • Persons working in a property or visiting that property will not be exposed to asbestos.
  • Persons required to do work upon the property will be advised of the presence of asbestos so that they can avoid it or, if adequately trained, work on it appropriately.

There will always be a Duty Holder in a non-domestic property, be that the Owner, the Manager of a company renting the property or a Head Teacher in a school. The Duty Holder is the person who has control of work upon the fabric of the building.
