Asbestos management

Asbestos may still be located in many items or facilities at SA government schools and preschools. Asbestos containing materials (ACM) in buildings and facilities is predominantly of the bonded and non-friable type and if in good condition and left undisturbed will not create a risk to the health and safety of individuals.

Annual inspections of all schools and preschools are undertaken by DPTI Asbestos Services and an asbestos register maintained at each site.

The Asbestos Management Procedure assists schools, early childhood services and corporate services to effectively manage the risks associated with the presence and removal of asbestos and ACM in buildings and facilities in accordance with legislative requirements.

Refer to the Asbestos intranet page for further information on managing asbestos at schools and preschools.
