Roof Auckland Talk About Asbestos & Asbestos Regulations

Under the Health and Safety at Work Asbestos regulations, a PCBU with Management or Control of a Workplace must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that all Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) at the workplace is identified by a competent person.

Asbestos has been used extensively in a wide range of construction applications throughout the world, including right here in New Zealand. Consequently, many building materials such as texture coatings, pipe lagging, insulation, wall panels, cladding, roofing, floor coverings and many other products used in local constructions are known to have been manufactured using asbestos. Importing raw asbestos into New Zealand was banned in 1984, but the importation of asbestos-containing products into the country wasn’t outlawed until October of 2016.
