Asbestos

Anyone who identifies or suspects they have identified an unmarked product containing asbestos should IMMEDIATELY report it to Facilities Management on 9266 2020 or Health and Safety on 9266 4900

The University has an Asbestos Management program that involves the identification, assessment and control of asbestos related products on all University land.  

Under the current Work Health and Safety legislation, workplaces must comply with the Code of Practice – How to manage and control asbestos in the workplace which specifies obligations in relation to asbestos containing materials. 

In line with this requirement, the University has an Asbestos Management Plan (AMP), Asbestos Management Register (AMR) and supporting documentation for the management of asbestos-containing materials on our campuses.
