Roads and Maritime manages the risk of exposure to asbestos, environments contaminated with asbestos dusts or debris, and asbestos containing materials (ACM).

Asbestos may be found on worksites in its natural form or as ACM in products used in older buildings, infrastructure and plant items. Workers may also come into contact with ACM debris or illegally dumped ACM when undertaking RMS work activities.

Our safety systems – including procedures, tools and guidance – assist in eliminating or minimising asbestos risks.
