The Cabinet had before it a * report of the Group Manager for Property and Commercial Assets providing an updated policy on asbestos management.
The Cabinet Member for Housing and Property Services outlined the contents of the report stating that the revised policy referred to the Council’s arrangements for managing the risks of exposure to asbestos by employees and non-employees within its activities for the corporate portfolio and the housing stock. The two previous separate policies had been amalgamated under this one revised policy. He also referred to the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and subsequent Acts.
RESOLVED that the updated Asbestos policy and procedures for the Corporate Property and Housing Stock (only common areas of domestic properties would be covered under this legislation) be approved.
(Proposed by Cllr S J Clist and seconded by Cllr D J Knowles)
