7 The Duty Holder Reg 4(1) (a) Contractually responsible for maintenance or repair (b) Control of the premises or means of access / egress

8 Regulation 4- Summary (a) Reasonable steps to find ACMs and check condition (b) Presume materials contain asbestos – unless strong evidence to suppose they do not (c) Make a written record of locations and keep record up to date (d) Assess risk of anyone being exposed (e) Prepare a written plan to manage the risk …>>>>> ACoP Para 112 ACoP Para 112

9 Written Plan …to ensure:  ACMS / Presumed ACMS are kept in a good state of repair  Repaired and protected if vulnerable to damage – or removed  Information on location and condition given to anyone liable to disturb the ACM or is otherwise at risk

10 Regulation 4- Summary (a) Reasonable steps to find ACMs and check condition (b) Presume materials contain asbestos – unless strong evidence to suppose they do not (c) Make a written record of locations and keep record up to date (d) Assess risk of anyone being exposed (e) Prepare a plan to manage the risk

36 Medium Potential Risk The condition of any material in the 'medium' category requires regular monitoring and a programme of encapsulation or removal may well be appropriate in the medium to long term.The condition of any material in the 'medium' category requires regular monitoring and a programme of encapsulation or removal may well be appropriate in the medium to long term.

37 Low Potential Risk 'Low' risk category materials are generally not considered to cause any immediate concern and are unlikely to present any significant risk under reasonably foreseeable circumstances. Periodic condition monitoring is however advisable.'Low' risk category materials are generally not considered to cause any immediate concern and are unlikely to present any significant risk under reasonably foreseeable circumstances.

38 Very Low Potential Risk 'Very Low' risk category materials are generally of a cement, resin or plastic based material and are not considered to cause any immediate concern, as these are unlikely to present any significant risk under reasonably foreseeable circumstances.
