COMING ACROSS ASBESTOS?

Are you running a business with workers who remove asbestos or asbestos containing material (ACM)? This year regulations are changing for asbestos-related work.
Asbestos regulations are being updated to bring New Zealand into line with other countries. With more than 170 New Zealand workers dying each year from asbestos-related diseases, our work practices need to improve.
Under the new regulations, that came in on April 4th, a licence is required to remove more than 10m2 of non-friable (bonded) asbestos or ACM in one job, or any amount of friable asbestos. The licence will be issued by government health and safety agency WorkSafe New Zealand.
