ASBESTOS NEWS - Medical surveillance for Notifiable non-licenced work with Asbestos

By 30 April 2015, all workers carrying out NNLW will need to have had a medical examination. Examinations will then need to be repeated at least every 3 years, as long as the worker continues to do NNLW.

After April 2015, workers carrying out NNLW for the first time will have to have an examination before they can start such work:

  • medical examinations must include an examination of the chest and a lung function test
  • they need to be carried out by a licensed medical practitioner, eg a GP
  • those workers already under surveillance via a licensed contractor and in possession of a valid certificate do not need to have the NNLW medical
  • medical examinations should be carried out in work time at the employers' expense
  • the fee should be agreed with the doctor before the examination is carried out- HSE can accept no responsibility for remuneration matters
  • the doctor must issue a certificate to confirm the examination has taken place and on what date - the employer needs to keep this certificate for 4 years


Guidance for doctors conducting these medical examinations[is available online.

Record keeping

Employers need to keep a register (health record) of NNLW with asbestos for each employee exposed to asbestos


This must include:

  • the nature and duration of work with asbestos and estimated exposure for each individual worker

  • dates of the worker's medical examinations



Record keeping may be as simple as writing down the names of workers on the job on your copy of the notification or keeping copies of the notification form for each person carrying out NNLW work, as the notification copy will document the nature of the job and type of asbestos from which likely exposure can be estimated.

More detailed medical records will be kept by the doctor.

Registers of work (health records) must be kept for 40 years (and offered to HSE or the individual concerned should the business cease trading).

The need to record exposure does not mean that every non licensed task must have air sampling. There will often be published exposure figures or knowledge within the industry about exposures found at similar lower risk work done in the past. If a task is unusual, then sampling may be required.
