The HSE are pleased to invite you to join them on 15 May at 10:30am for their webinar titled "Duty to manage asbestos in buildings: The law, the risk to health and how to safely manage asbestos" presented by HSE experts.

Asbestos is the greatest cause of work-related deaths in Great Britain. Around 5,000 people die every year from asbestos-related diseases which typically take decades to develop and cannot be cured.

Asbestos was used in many industries and buildings until it was banned in 1999 so much of this material is still in place. This means people who work in older buildings could still be exposed to asbestos fibres today if asbestos is not managed effectively, and is damaged or disturbed.

This session will take you through the process of carrying out an effective asbestos risk assessment and guide you on how to complete an asbestos management plan.

The webinar aligns with the HSE ‘Asbestos: Duty to manage’ campaign which supports organisations in identifying dutyholders and implementing effective strategies to mitigate asbestos-related risks.

HSE offers comprehensive guidance, resources and training solutions to support you in complying with your legal duty which will be highlighted in this webinar. HSE publications on this subject include the Asbestos Essentials Publication and the newly released 'Where Asbestos Hides’ posters.
