This Guide provides information about identifying, managing and handling low density asbestos fibre board (LDB) in workplaces. This guide should be used if you think you may have LDB in your workplace, are a worker who handles or is likely to use LDB, or if you supervise a worker who handles or is likely to handle LDB.

The guide provides information on managing health and safety risks of asbestos in the workplace, and the code of practice gives information on safely removing asbestos containing material.
