Working on Department of Education (DoE) facilities (PDF, 233KB) ensures service providers and contractors fulfil their obligations regarding all work performed on department-owned facilities, include work involving asbestos-containing material (ACM).
The priority when service providers are on site is to ensure that all work is carried out in a safe manner. You must obtain a Work Area Access Permit (WAAP) for all maintenance, installation, refurbishment and construction related works of any description before commencing onsite.
An asbestos register is attached to the WAAP containing information about known confirmed, assumed and removed ACM.
Understanding your responsibilities
The department has developed a presentation that outlines the key responsibilities of service providers in the management of ACM in department-owned facilities.
This 30 minute presentation is designed to provide information to inform service providers on requirements to prevent incidents from occurring.
Service providers found to have contravened asbestos regulations when undertaking work at department-owned facilities are dealt with severely. This includes a range of sanctions up to and including the inability to perform future work on or in departmental facilities.
