Asbestos in Schools
Asbestos was an integral building material used to construct many buildings from the 1920s and was only prohibited in 1999. The majority of schools, universities and colleges were constructed during the last 75 years and therefore contain asbestos.
One of the many reasons why asbestos hasn’t been removed from schools is due to the cost, but there is a legal obligation to manage the condition of asbestos. Legislation titled “The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012” specifically places the responsibility on the property duty holder (CAR 2012 – Regulation 4 The Duty to Manage).
