Asbestos Regulations in Church Buildings
The law regarding management of asbestos in buildings has recently changed, and the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 now apply. Church buildings are covered by these regulations. The Elders have a duty to manage church buildings and also therefore have a duty to manage asbestos in those buildings. Please remember that exposure to any asbestos-containing material (ACM) can kill. Insurance policies do not generally cover claims arising for damages or injury resulting from exposure to asbestos (unless appropriate measures have been applied).
