If you’re a builder, plumber, electrician, or painter, WorkSafe has launched four new guides so you can quickly understand your responsibilities and how to manage risks around working with or near asbestos:

  • Working with or near asbestos – for builders.
  • Working with or near asbestos – for electricians.
  • Working with or near asbestos – for painters.
  • Working with or near asbestos – for plumbers.

The guides are designed for tradespeople who work for themselves or have other people (including apprentices) working for them. Each guide is a one-stop information resource that you can find on WorkSafe’s website.
