Identifibre Pty Ltd can provide management solutions that assist you to comply with Occupational Health and Safety Regulations (VIC) 2017 and the Australian Work Health and Safety (WHS) Regulations 2011.
The aim of an Identifibre Management Plan is to enable the effective management of all hazards associated with asbestos through a structured program that eliminates or minimises exposure in accordance with legislative requirements.
An asbestos management plan helps people with the management and control of buildings and other relevant structures to prevent exposure to airborne asbestos fibres of staff, contractors and site visitors. The person in control of a workplace must take reasonable steps to label and record asbestos in a register and inform everyone on the premises where asbestos is present, the consequences of exposure to asbestos and other appropriate control measures.
Identifibre provides a complete asbestos management solution, incorporating the asbestos assessment and management plan framework adapted to your particular organisation structure.
The principal element of a management plan is an asbestos register which contains the following elements;
• Risk control strategies. • An ongoing inspection programme.
The plan/register must be readily accessible to workers and others at the workplace, kept up to date, and be reviewed at least once every five years or sooner if:
• A control measure or the register is reviewed. • Asbestos is removed from, or disturbed, sealed or enclosed.
• The plan is no longer adequate for managing asbestos or asbestos containing materials at the workplace.
• A health and safety representative requests a review in certain circumstances.
Asbestos containing materials should be labelled for easy identification.
Identifibre offers a labeling service whereby we supply and install labels (see examples pictured), these generic labels are also available for purchasing. Labels specific to a particular workplace can also be supplied on request.
