Asbestos Safety Checklist

https://www.commerce.wa.gov.au/sites/default/files/atoms/files/asbestos_management.pdf

Identification of asbestos hazards

Has the location of asbestos containing material (ACM) been identified in all buildings, including any inaccessible areas, and machinery and plant?

Has the type and condition of ACM been identified? For example, types include AC sheets, lagging on pipes and flues, ACM gaskets in machinery or plant and window putty. Note also whether the ACM is intact or damaged.

Has the identification been carried out by a competent person?

Is ACM labelled in all areas where a competent person has determined it is
needed to assist people to identify the ACM?

Asbestos risk assessment

Did the risk assessment include:

scope (area the register covers);

consultation with staff;

examination of the condition of the ACM (for example friable or bonded and stable) and whether it is liable to damage or deterioration;

assessment of the probability of disturbance to the ACM; and

likelihood of people being exposed to asbestos fibres (based on the above points).

Has the risk assessment been carried out by a competent person?

Asbestos register

Where there is ACM at the workplace, is there an ‘asbestos register’?

Does the ‘asbestos register’ contain accurate information on:

scope (area the register covers);

date of identification/inspection;

locations of ACM;

types and form of ACM;

condition of ACM (intact or damaged);

analysis results (if carried out);

location of any presumed ACM including inaccessible areas;

date of each risk assessment;

name of competent person(s) who carried out risk assessment;

risk assessment findings and conclusions including any reviews and revisions;

air monitoring results (if any);

recommended control measures; and

details of any work or maintenance on ACM

Has the ‘asbestos register’ been reviewed within the last 12 months (or up to three years if low risk and there is recommendations from a competent person)?

Working with asbestos

Do any of the employees or contractors work on the ACM? For example, maintenance work that involves cutting, grinding, sawing, drilling or sanding

Are systems of work in place to ensure any work on ACM is carried out in a safe manner?

Have employees who work on ACM been trained in safe work methods?

Is a licensed asbestos removalist used to remove >10m2 non-friable ACM or any friable ACM?

Communication and consultation

Have all relevant persons received training on the presence of ACM and the ‘asbestos register’ including procedures for providing register to contractors?

Are systems in place to ensure the ‘asbestos register’ is made available to employees and contractors who are likely to conduct work on the ACM or may be in the vicinity of such work?

Waste and clean up

Are systems in place to ensure any asbestos waste is disposed of properly? This should include:

sealing waste in plastic or other container;

placing waste in a plastic lined skip bin;

labelling the waste; and

transporting the waste too an approved waste disposal facility for asbestos.

Are asbestos work areas inspected for cleanliness at the end of the job?
