Introduction The importance of asbestos management: Did you know ... It is estimated that 85% of buildings within the UK still have significant quantities of asbestos containing materials present. The number of asbestos related deaths continues to rise in the UK, with current figures reaching 2,000 per annum. The HSE has recognised the risk of exposure to asbestos and has made it a legal duty to assess and manage the risk of asbestos in buildings. It is essential to know the location and condition of asbestos within buildings, to maintain written records and to document actions, and to have a management system and procedures in place to avoid exposure to asbestos fibres.
