Asbestos Registers

All workplaces constructed before 1990 should be assessed for asbestos, with the findings recorded in an Asbestos Register.

All workplaces constructed before 1990 should be assessed for the presence of asbestos, with the findings recorded in an Asbestos Register. Some jurisdictions require all workplaces constructed before the National Asbestos Ban in December 2003 to be assessed.

For newer structures and equipment it may be possible to use original design and material specifications to determine whether asbestos containing materials (ACMs) are likely to be present.

If specifications are not available, a Workplace Asbestos Audit should be undertaken, or suspect materials should either be sampled or presumed to be ACM.
If asbestos materials are identified or presumed to be present, an Asbestos Management Plan (AMP) should also be prepared.

BENSS Asbestos Registers


BENSS’ Asbestos Audit Reports also function as the Asbestos Register, including all the information required by State and Territory legislation.

Our asbestos reports and Asbestos Registers are designed to be clear and easy for use by all, not just industry professionals, and incorporate Risk Assessments, Photographs, and Marked Plans highlighting locations of materials.

Non-asbestos materials present in an area are also reported (‘negative reporting’) during a typical audit, which can save time and costs in the future. Negative reporting allows non-asbestos materials to be identified quickly, without needing additional samples at a later date.

Asbestos Audits are conducted by our experienced and licensed Asbestos Assessors, who provide the site Audit Report & Asbestos Register, with recommendations for risk control and legal compliance.

Asbestos Register Database


For our clients with larger sites or multiple assets, we can provide the Asbestos Register in a database format.

The database format can be tailored to individual requirements, and provides a centralised, up-to-date record of asbestos audit findings and risk assessments.

The database allows historical information, such as details of previous audits, asbestos removal works, Clearance Certificates and photographs, to be efficiently reviewed.

A reminder system can also be set up for future planned actions, and meet legal requirements such as periodic reinspections.
