Asbestos: Outlining Responsibilities – Your Practical Steps – England and Wales – Article 2

Following part one of our two-part series on asbestos, which outlined the responsibilities of landlords, we look in depth at the risk to health from asbestos-containing material (ACM). We also explore where this fibrous material is most commonly located in residential dwellings and non-domestic premises, and the main legislation which is often used by prosecuting authorities in cases related to asbestos.

The principal legislation that landlords and agents should be aware of in this discussion are the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. Regulation 4.
