Division 6 Demolition/Refurbishment Asbestos Survey and Hazardous Materials Risk Assessment

Before demolition or refurbishment work commences at a workplace, the person who manages or controls the workplace must
(a) review the asbestos register; and
(b) revise the asbestos register if it is inadequate having regard to the proposed demolition or refurbishment work.


A Division 6 Demolition/Refurbishment Asbestos Survey and Hazardous Materials Assessment satisfies the requirements of  Division 6 – Demolition and refurbishment where asbestos is present of the Victorian Government Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 Chapter 4 Part 4.4. The purpose of the survey and risk assessment is to ensure that all reasonably accessible hazardous materials are identified in order that any associated risk can be controlled before and during planned works.

The survey involves the physical inspection of the site, collection of material samples and consideration of other relevant information. A comprehensive report is provided which provides the following information:
