Updated _ HSE’s Asbestos Essentials

Please be aware that the HSE in September updated their ‘Asbestos Essentials’ task sheets tell employers, managers and sole traders what to do when they need to work on or near ACMs. The task sheets cover work that does not need a licence if carried out as the sheets describe.  There has been no notification published alongside this update outlining what has changed.  It is therefore incumbent upon the user to make sure they are working to correct version.  This is easy to spot as the latest task sheets state at the end of each document alongside the statement published by the HSE the date code 09/17.  The latest version of the HSE Asbestos Essentials can be found here.
