Asbestos Management Plan

About Service

An Asbestos Management Plan sets out where asbestos or asbestos containing material is and how it will be managed within a property.

An Asbestos Management Plan must be in place before any works are undertaken to the property that may disturb the asbestos or asbestos containing materials – e.g. drilling or cutting. The plan must be provided to all contractors before work commences as they need to be made aware of any risks. The document must be updated with the details of all those who view it.

How does this apply to rental properties?

An AMP is designed to aide contractors and PCBU’s when a rental property is a workplace. Originally it was thought the type of work that required an AMP was anything that would create a risk of exposure to asbestos – eg. cutting into a wall. However, after further discussions with WorkSafe, it has been confirmed that work conducted which may put workers at risk of exposure to unknown deteriorated or broken asbestos, such as Property Managers conducting property inspections, also requires an AMP to be in place beforehand. This is because even though the type of work itself creates no risk of exposure to asbestos, a Property Manager may already be at risk due to the condition of the property. Therefore, knowing where asbestos is and what to do is best practice.

Our Asbestos Management Plans have been created in partnership with Site Safe NZ and WorkSafe to ensure your requirements are met.

With every AMP you purchase through Healthy Homes NZ you’ll receive a property ID sticker which contractors scan to access the plan before beginning work, this automatically updates the AMP as per Worksafe’s requirements and an up-to-date version is kept live on our server for contractors to access.

An AMP can be created either by assuming asbestos exists and working with all materials accordingly, or by confirming first where asbestos exists. 

Option 1: All Assumed AMP

You will be provided with a plan which assumes all materials in the property contain asbestos and when work is required or damage occurs the material must be treated with stringent processes to ensure any asbestos risk is contained.

Cost: $40+GST per annum

Option 2: Competent Sampler & Focused AMP

If you have work planned which will target one area, for example a bathroom vent installation, we can send a qualified assessor to collect samples of relevant materials in the room to test for the presence of asbestos. The results of this would be included in the AMP, with the rest of the property treated as an Assumed AMP.

Cost:
$40+GST per Annum AMP
$219+GST Competent Sampler Fee
$55+GST per sample analysis fee

Option 3: Asbestos Management Survey & AMP

A qualified assessor will complete a full survey of the site, taking samples where required. This is then used to create a detailed AMP to inform all future work.

Cost:
$450+GST Asbestos Management Survey
$55+GST per sample analysis fee
First year of AMP free of charge, $40+GST per annum ongoing
