It is now nearly two decades since the duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic buildings has been in place. In the intervening years, duty holders have undoubtedly had challenges, but most are now far bettered informed on what the risks are now and how they manage them.

Asbestos management is a long game and changes in duty holding, building use and management can all influence the integrity of your compliance. So, for our next seminar, in collaboration with Devonshires solicitors, we will be considering where the pitfalls can occur with asbestos and if it does go wrong, what the consequences are.

Taking both a legal and practitioners view, together with our audiences’ judgments, we will be reviewing asbestos scenarios and case law to understand what success should look like, in effectively managing the risk of asbestos today.

Please come and join us for breakfast, some interaction using on your smartphone (it’s easy to use and instructions will be provided on the day), and healthy debate.
