As of January 1st, 2011, the installation of ACMs on board was completely prohibited without any exceptions.

 

Due to its unique properties, Asbestos has been used throughout the shipping industry for many years. Many new vessels that were newly introduced to the market from developing countries are also now found to contain Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM).

These materials include sprayed asbestos coatings, asbestos insulations and asbestos lagging. Most work involving of asbestos removal is a significantly hazardous occupation because it involves higher risk asbestos-containing materials (ACMs). These materials are more likely to release larger quantities of asbestos fibres when being removed than lower risk materials like asbestos cement.

 

As a result, workers who are employed in removing higher risk ACMs require specific training and follow specific working practices and techniques to prevent any hazards. Employees also use sophisticated Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) for extra safety and are legally required to be under regular medical surveillance in case of any emergencies.
