What Premises Are Affected by Duty to Manage Asbestos?

As mentioned, premises affected by the Duty to Manage Asbestos are non-domestic, and communal areas of residential premises such as apartments blocks. This includes industrial, commercial or public buildings such as factories, warehouses, offices, shops, hospitals and schools. It should be noted that this includes any ‘common’ areas of certain domestic premises, such as foyers, corridors, lifts, staircases, roof spaces, gardens, yards, outhouses and garages. However, this does not include domestic living spaces. 

When is Asbestos Dangerous? 

If asbestos-containing materials are damaged or disturbed, fibres are released from the material which if inhaled can cause health effects and diseases which can be fatal. Therefore it is essential that building owners know where all asbestos containing materials are in their buildings so they can manage and monitor it safely and keep those that are working & visiting the building safe from any potential exposure.

If safely managed and contained, asbestos does not present a health hazard and does not always need to be removed.
