Asbestos protocol consultation

The asbestos safety protocol sets out the arrangements for managing the risks from asbestos containing materials (ACMs) in all University premises. 

This protocol is now available for consultation. This follows a number of essential updates to bring this protocol in line with the University’s Health and Safety Policy and audit requirements.  

Roles and responsibilities 

Please note: the Facilities Directorate is responsible for the management of asbestos in University buildings. Staff however should be aware of their responsibility to ensure ACMs are left undisturbed, and report any damage to a material that may contain asbestos.
