Manage asbestos

The Queensland Government protects the health and wellbeing of workers, contractors and the community by ensuring that asbestos containing materials are managed safely and appropriately.

Government departments are responsible for many assets that service Queenslanders, including buildings (workplaces and domestic premises), land, vehicles, vessels, infrastructure, plant and equipment.

Our long-term objective is that all assets that departments manage or control are free of asbestos containing materials.

Until then, we’ll manage all asbestos-containing materials in our assets appropriately to protect the people who occupy, service and visit our assets from exposure to respirable asbestos fibres.

See the Queensland Government Asbestos Management Policy for its Assets (PDF, 540KB).
