If you are responsible for the maintenance of non-domestic premises, you have a ‘duty to manage‘ the asbestos in them, to protect anyone using or working in the premises from the risks to health that exposure to asbestos causes.
If you are the owner of non-domestic premises or the person or organisation that has clear responsibility for the maintenance or repair of non-domestic premises, you are known as the ‘dutyholder‘, and it is your legal responsibility to identify the location and condition of asbestos in non-domestic properties, and to manage the risk to prevent harm to anyone who works in, or is an occupant of the building.
