Note

UniSA’s Asbestos Register has been compiled using a non-invasive inspection methodology. UniSA has taken all reasonably practicable steps to ensure that its Asbestos Register is accurate and up to date and that it complies with the law. UniSA’s Asbestos Register has been updated and compiled in accordance with UniSA’s Asbestos Management Plan and associated procedures. Please note that the absence of an entry within this Register does not necessarily correlate to the absence of asbestos in any particular space. All contractors must undertake their own inspections by a Competent Person and all works should proceed with caution. Contractors are required to comply with all relevant laws including the Work Health & Safety Act, Regulations and Codes of Practice. Contractors are to refer to the UniSA Properties Register (available from the campus FM Assist office) to ascertain applicable construction dates and copies of any associated procedures before commencing works.
