 UKNAR is encouraging all professional trades to think carefully this week during Global Asbestos Awareness Week (and beyond) about the very real risks and dangers. Every tradesperson needs to see an asbestos register when they arrive on-site at managed premises before they start work. Alarmingly, 1-in-3 construction workers say they have never seen an asbestos register (IOSH report 2018). UKNAR’s own research in the last twelve months has also revealed that on the occasions tradespeople do get see a register it is often not easily comprehensible.

You can help to register the danger by asking if the site has an Asbestos SMART register. It is the duty holder’s responsibility to ensure all contractors and building occupiers are informed of the presence of asbestos if their activities could be likely to cause any disturbance. However, ultimately it is your responsibility to protect yourselves – by asking for that register!
