I have asbestos materials in my building. Do I need to remove them immediately?

As long as the asbestos materials are intact and undisturbed, your risk of exposure to asbestos dust is very low.

However, if the materials have been damaged, you should have them removed immediately.

Actions such as cutting, drilling or scrapping will affect the ACMs and pose a health risk to you. To minimise the risk, you should get MOM’s Approved Asbestos-Removal Contractors (AARC) to remove the ACM.
