Asbestos-cement water pipe management guidelines released

The Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency has recently released guidelines to assist water and sewerage service providers in controlling asbestos exposure risks during maintenance and removal of asbestos-cement pipes.

The Asbestos-Cement Water and Sewer Pipe Management Guidelines provide practical advice on identifying, assessing, and controlling the risk of exposure to airborne asbestos fibres under current WHS and environment protection laws.

The information will assist contractors and other people responsible for removing, replacing or restoring asbestos-cement pipes in managing exposure risks.

Methods to safely remediate deteriorating AC pipes and manage decommissioned AC pipes that remain in the ground are also included in the ASEA guidelines.
