Fibrous products are often used in building materials, between the 1940s and the 1980s. So, if you live in a property that was built before 1990s, you have to be cautious since most likely, your property contains fibrous materials.
Asbestos-containing material (ACM) has widely used in home building materials such as:
- Wall sheeting
- Floor sheeting
- Hot water systems
These products are categorized as non-friable fibers because the exposed surface are usually sealed and covered in paint.
It is reported that one third of all homes built in Australia contain fibrous materials. That makes Australia has a serious problem with ACMs. The government keeps raising citizen awareness towards the dangers of ACMs. Since most of the properties in Queensland that were built before the 1990s contain fibrous materials.
ACMs are commonly used in home construction materials due to its strength, flexibility, insulation from heat and electricity and affordability.
The Australian government has taken acts to warn the citizen about fibrout products. Warning stickers have been installed in commercial housing properties built before the 1990s. This effort aims to alert the building occupant about the possible presence of ACMs. The stickers usually put inside an electrical meter box and also next to a smoke alarm.
Though the bonded fibre does not pose risks to our health, but it can become dangerous as time goes by. When the top layer of the non-friable material is disturbed or broken, the microscopic fibers can become airborne. Inhaling airborne fibres continously into the lungs may risk your health as it may trigger the progression of deadly diseases such as lung cancers.

Do you need an Asbestos Management Plan for Your Property?
It is stated in The Queensland Workplace Code of Practice (2011) that every workplace in Queensland must have an asbestos management program (AMP). An AMP will alert people around the property to the possible presence of fibrous products and also helps people with the management and control of a building. It aims to prevent exposures to airborne fibers by the staffs and area visitors.
Recording the presence of fibrous products are the responsibility of people who manage or control a workplace.
An asbestos register will record all ACMs presence within a building and the materials must also be labeled. The location where an ACM is present must be informed to everyone on the premises. The building occupants must also be informed about the consequences and risks of exposure and other proper control measures.

The control plan must set clear aims, stating:
- What is going to be done?
- When it is going to be done?
- How the control plan is going to be done?
Moreover, The QLD government regulations stated that the plan must include:
- An ACM register of the workplace, which always has to be updated as long as the information stated are valid.
- A maintenance plan which covers who will perform the work, when it id going to bedone, the extent of the work and include a certification of clearance.
- Informing people about the presence of fibrous products in the workplace, exposure risks and also the implemented control measures.
- Show decisions about management options and elaborates why the decision was taken.
- A timetable of action which mention priorities and dates for reviewing risk assessments.
- A monitoring program.
- Awarness training program for workers and contractors (Also, the training schedule).
- Providing information of safe work methods.
The AMP must be written orderly to identify fibrous materials and naturally-occurring ACMs at a workplace. The plan must be accessible to workers and visitors at the premise. The AMP must be reviewed and updated at least once every five years. But, if certain cases happen, the plan must be renewed immediately.
Example of cases:
- When fibrous materials are removed, damaged, sealed or enclosed.
- When the plan is no longer sufficient for managing ACMs at the workplace or building.
- When the control measures or the register is reviewed.
- When there is a request from the health and safety representative for a review in a specific situation.
