We provide exemplary asbestos audits to produce high-quality asbestos registers and management plans that are quick and easy to understand. GAA’s licensed asbestos assessors will make sure your Northern Territory property is and stays compliant with every changing NT Work Safety regulations.
The Northern Territory has established a framework of workplace health and safety regulations aimed at governing the responsibilities of employers in mitigating the potential risks associated with asbestos exposure among workers. Employers operating within this jurisdiction are legally obliged to adhere to the provisions outlined in the Work Health and Safety (National Uniform Legislation) Act 2011 and the accompanying Work Health and Safety (National Uniform Legislation) Regulations 2011.
Moreover, there exists a comprehensive code of practice specifically designed to guide employers on the effective management and safe removal of asbestos within workplace settings. Much like residential structures, commercial offices and industrial facilities that incorporate asbestos-containing materials may pose minimal risk as long as these asbestos materials remain undisturbed. However, should circumstances arise where asbestos becomes damaged, or there is a foreseeable likelihood of asbestos disturbance during the course of an employee’s duties, it becomes the unequivocal duty of the employer to actively address and mitigate these risks.
Within the Northern Territory, it is mandatory that asbestos removal from commercial and government buildings is entrusted solely to licensed asbestos removalists. This regulatory measure ensures that asbestos removal activities are carried out with the highest level of competence, precision, and adherence to safety standards, ultimately safeguarding the well-being of workers and the broader community.
