Managing Asbestos

A regional contaminated land forum relating to the management of asbestos was held on 10 August 2017. The forum explored and clarified different asbestos management scenarios facing Councils and the associated regulatory frameworks and responsibilities (i.e. who is responsible for what), appropriate assessment and remediation standards, and key resources available to assist Councils.
