L143 (Second Edition) Managing and working with asbestos

Two ACOPs, L127 (The management of asbestos in non-domestic premises) and L143 (Work with materials containing asbestos) have been consolidated into this single revised ACOP – L143 Managing and working with asbestos.

The document provides guidance for employers about work which disturbs, or is likely to disturb asbestos, asbestos sampling and laboratory analysis.  It also provides guidance on the specific duty to manage asbestos on the owners and/or those responsible for maintenance in non-domestic premises.
