Do you need to be registered to remove asbestos in South Africa?
Yes, according to the Asbestos Abatement Regulations of 2022 in South Africa, any person or company involved in asbestos removal, handling, transportation, or disposal must be registered as an asbestos contractor by the Department of Employment and Labour. This registration requirement ensures that asbestos removal is carried out by trained and qualified professionals who understand the hazards associated with asbestos.
The registration process involves providing evidence of relevant experience, qualifications, and insurance, as well as paying an application fee. Once registered, asbestos contractors are obligated to comply with the regulations and guidelines for the safe handling, removal, and disposal of asbestos-containing materials.
It is essential to adhere to these regulations to safeguard the health and safety of workers and the public. Failure to comply can lead to fines and legal consequences.
