Asbestos

We recognise and accept our responsibilities to ensure the effective and safe management of asbestos containing materials in our properties as required by the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.  

If your home was built prior to 1999 there may be materials that contain asbestos - any areas identified will be labelled clearly.  

If you are worried about asbestos in your property, please call the contact centre on 0161 217 6016. For more information, see our Asbestos Policy

You can also download the asbestos in the home booklet.

  • Asbestos database

    We keep an up-to-date database (register) of asbestos containing materials in our premises and constantly update it to minimise the potential for exposure to asbestos products.

  • Actions if asbestos is identified

    We use an assessment of risks to determine the relevant action that may be needed if asbestos containing materials are identified. The main actions are to:

    • record details and manage
    • seal
    • encapsulate or remove
  • Managing asbestos

    We ensure that processes and procedures are in place to manage asbestos by:

    • maintaining an up-to-date asbestos register
    • monitoring the performance of staff and contractors who work on asbestos products
    • ensuring that members of the public, staff and contractors are not unnecessarily exposed to risk by regular checking
  • Asbestos containing materials

    Where any material has been identified to be in good condition and the material is unlikely to be disturbed, no immediate action is required and this will be included on an asbestos register for future inspection.

    If Asbestos containing materials are identified to be in a condition that requires it to be removed, then this will be coordinated in a structured way in line within strict removal procedures and guidelines to ensure that customers and staff / contractors are not exposed to any risks.
