Before starting any work that is likely to disturb asbestos, a suitable and sufficient risk assessment must be prepared by the employer or person in charge of the premises. This means examining the potential risks to health and identifying which precautions are needed to make the work safe. Whoever carries out the risk assessment must have a sufficient level of knowledge, training and expertise. This is to make sure that they understand the risks from asbestos (and general risks) to enable them to make informed decisions about the risks and identify the appropriate action required to reduce them. They will also need to be able to estimate the expected level of exposure to help them decide whether or not the control limit is likely to be exceeded.
