The most ‘at risk’ group of contracting asbestos related diseases from exposure to asbestos are tradespersons/contractors who are disturbing Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) unknowingly in the course of their works. The management process is designed to protect them and others from unnecessary exposure to Asbestos and Asbestos Containing Materials.
