Asbestos Management Policy

Singleton Council acknowledges the serious health hazard of exposure to asbestos. It has an important role in both maintaining a safe environment and minimising, as far as reasonably practicable, the risk of exposure to asbestos by the public within the local government area (LGA) and workers in Council workplaces.  

Council is committed to complying with the Model Asbestos Policy and Guide for NSW councils developed by the Heads of Asbestos Coordination Authorities to promote a consistent local government approach to asbestos management across NSW.
