The Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016 state that every building built prior to 2000 must be assumed to contain asbestos, and that no-one can go near it unless they comply with the regulations.  PCBUs with control or influence over a workplace have until April 2018 to develop a plan to manage the risk of exposure.  The regulations are consistent with the Act’s intention that there is a collective responsibility to manage risks to health and safety. 

Please join us for an informative evening as our panel outlines your responsibilities as property owners and managers.  Our panel comprises:

David Smillie, Partner at Gallaway Cook Allan Lawyers, will outline the legal obligations and implications of the legislation.

Graham Helm, Executive Broker (Corporate) at Crombie Lockwood (NZ) Limited, will explain what your insurance can and can’t generally cover.

Mike Lea, Managing Director at Salmac Insulation, will reveal in practical terms what asbestos is about, what to look for, and what your responsibilities are.

There will be a Q&A session with the panel who will clarify matters so that you will:

  • As an officer of a PCBU, be able to show you are meeting your due diligence obligation under the Health and Safety at Work Act
  • As a building owner, know what you should be providing to your tenants and contractors
  • As a property manager, understand what you should be asking of your contractors.

This is a great opportunity to increase your understanding and help you to avoid unnecessary risk and costs associated with managing asbestos.
