An Asbestos Management Plan is simply a document regarding the management of asbestos. Across Northern Ireland we write these for our clients every day. Ever wondered what goes into one? Your asbestos management plan should include the following:

  1. The person / officer responsible for managing asbestos.
  2. Provide details / instructions for the asbestos register.
  3. Plans for any work on the asbestos material.
  4. Details for monitoring asbestos and it’s condition.
  5. Instructions for telling people about any decisions made.

In addition to this the plan must be easy to read and easy to update. It can be computer based!

You must record the condition of the asbestos at regular intervals and update the plan whenever work affects the asbestos material.
