Asbestos Awareness & Management

Asbestos Awareness & Management

Councils have a key role to play in The National Strategic Plan for Asbestos Awareness and Management 2019–2023 prepared by the Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency.

The strategy requires councils to assist in improving asbestos awareness, to influence behaviour change, progress identification and effective legacy asbestos management, and undertake safe and prioritised removal and disposal of in-situ asbestos containing materials.

Nine national stretch targets have been defined to help remain focused and measure progress over the next five years. Details are contained within the Strategic Plan.
