Regulations change for Notifiable Non-Licensed Work on Asbestos

Medical examinations needed for all workers carrying out NNLW on asbestos from 1st May 2015

The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 requires medical surveillance for workers undertaking licensed asbestos work, and from 1st May 2015, will also cover workers carrying out Notifiable Non-Licensed Work (NNLW) on asbestos.

A worker planning to carry out any NNLW, on or after 1st May 2015, must have a medical examination before this work can be commenced, unless the worker has had a suitable examination in the previous three years. These examinations can be carried out by an appropriate fully registered medical practitioner and must be repeated every three years (or before if advised by the medical practitioner) while this type of work is undertaken or excepted to be undertaken.
