Asbestos management for homeowners.
As I have said before, asbestos management in a home mainly consists of keeping a watchful and knowledgeable eye on your house and maintaining the materials that contain asbestos in good condition.
If you know or suspect that you have asbestos in your home DON'T PANIC. Just about all of the asbestos related products are very stable.
Asbestos management for AC siding, FAC flat sheets on wall and ceilings
Asbestos Management of corrugated FAC roof sheeting
This is one product that in my opinion that there is no asbestos management method. The only thing to do with this stuff is to have it removed professionally. In the same category are asbestos cement gutters and rainwater downpipes.
Asbestos Management of Wet area sheets, "Tilux"
Asbestos management of loose items.
For items like planter boxes, garden ornaments, stove top pads, oven gloves ironing board covers etc it is best just to dispose of them if you have the slightest suspicion that the may contain asbestos.

This is a highly complex and stringently regulated field. I am not a scientist, I am not a government spokesperson or anyone with any authority to talk or give professional advice on the subject in your area.
What I am is a retired builder with a large amount of practical experience fixing fibrous asbestos cement products and then later removing them.
In 1995 I was issued an asbestos removal licence (43133) by the Northern Territory Work Health Authority, and did many asbestos removal jobs, complying with Australian Work Health (OH&S) Regulations and the NOHSC National Code Of Practice For The Safe Removal Of Asbestos.
I hope you get something of value out of these pages, but a word of caution, at the last count I get visitors from 132 different countries, there is no way that I can give specific advice that would comply with the regulations in your country, state, district or local area.
In other words, the onus is on YOU to check out the regulations where you live, and comply with them. If you have any doubts get advice from a licensed person IN YOUR AREA.
Please Note! The information on this site is offered as a guide only! When we are talking about areas where building regulations or safety regulations could exist,the information here could be wrong for your area. It could be out of date! Regulations breed faster than rabbits!
You must check your own local conditions.
