Schools asbestos register
The department's schools asbestos register contains information about the existence and location of any known or presumed asbestos-containing materials on school sites, based on advice from experts.
For each school you will find the Department of Education Asbestos Management Plan and associated Asbestos Register, and for a small number of schools a Site Specific Management Plan which details where we have found and remediated in-grounds asbestos.
Please read the Asbestos Register in conjunction with the Asbestos Management Plan (PDF 12MB) so you can fully understand the register.
The registers are updated annually.
The vast majority of materials containing asbestos are safe. Studies show that if the material is left undisturbed and is in sound condition it poses no risk to health.
Any member of the school community, parent, student or neighbour is able to view their school's asbestos register by contacting the school principal. Call 132 779 and ask for your school's asset management unit.
