Statistics, guidelines and advice
Best practice case studies
In the second half of the 2014–15 year, the agency commenced a project to identify and promote a range of organisations and individuals currently demonstrating best practice across a variety of areas in asbestos management.
The goal of this project was to highlight examples of best-practice asbestos management across Australia, and promote these examples to the wider community and their industry contemporaries while encouraging them to employ similar innovative ideas or practices that lead to safer handling/management of ACMs.

National Strategic Plan
Preventing the risk of asbestos exposure is important to all Australians. The achievement of a nationally endorsed plan is a significant step for all Australians and for governments to work together to address the deadly legacy of asbestos in our built environment. The National Strategic Plan for Asbestos Management and Awareness 2014-18 was developed in consultation with Australian Government agencies, state and territory and local governments and a range of non-governmental stakeholders. It is a high level document that establishes a framework within which jurisdictions work both cooperatively and independently to achieve set objectives.
The previous National Strategic Plan for Asbestos Awareness and Management 2013-2018 can be obtained from the agency on request.
Asbestos Management Review
In 2010, a wide ranging review was established by the Australian Government to make recommendations for the development of a national strategic plan to improve asbestos management in Australia. The review encompassed asbestos management issues beyond work health and safety to include environmental and public health issues. The review also looked at issues including education and public awareness, removal, transport and disposal of asbestos.
The Asbestos Management Review Report released in June 2012 recommended the development of a national strategic plan to improve asbestos awareness and management in the broader community. The review recommended that an independent national agency be established to guide the implementation of the plan.
