HSE Inspectors to Assess the Management of Asbestos in Schools

July 2022

What is happening?

The HSE has published in their e-bulletin on the 14th July 2022 that they will be carrying out a programme of inspections to primary and secondary schools in England, Scotland and Wales from September 2022 onwards.


The inspections will be assessing how schools are managing the risks from asbestos within the school estate and meeting the ‘duty to manage’ (DTM) requirements under Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR).

The regulations place duties on those with responsibility for the maintenance of work premises, including schools, to manage the risk from asbestos. For the majority of schools, this will be the employer.
