Case study two: Ergon Energy - A systematic approach to managing asbestos

Date created: Date modified: 18 Aug 2020

Ergon Energy has taken a proactive approach to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment for its employees, its contractors and for members of the public. They have adopted a systematic, organisation-wide approach to managing asbestos-related issues, and in many cases have gone above and beyond the requirements of the relevant safety legislation and codes of practice, as they work towards their long-term goal – to achieve, as far as is practicable, an asbestos-free workplace by 2027.
