The use of all asbestos containing materials (ACM) was banned in 1999 so any building constructed or refurbished before 2000 could contain asbestos.

Any worker liable to disturb asbestos while performing their normal everyday work is required to be trained. Every employer must ensure that adequate information, instruction and training is given to those employees who are liable to be exposed to asbestos during the course of their work. Training should be carried out at least annually.
