I think I have asbestos in my workplace. What should I do?

As long as asbestos is in good condition and is not being, or going to be, disturbed or damaged there is no risk. However if it is disturbed or damaged, for example during building maintenance work, it can be a danger to health, because asbestos fibres are then released into the air and breathed in. A good strategy to manage asbestos containing materials will help to prevent risk to workers or others who may use the premises, such as contractors and members of the public.
