Founded in 2010, Joint Union Asbestos Committee (JUAC) protects education workers by raising awareness of asbestos in schools and promoting improved management of asbestos in education sector buildings. The JUAC members are representatives from ASCL, ATL, NASUWT, NAHT, NUT, Voice, UNISON, Unite the Union, and GMB.
JUAC aims to make UK schools and colleges safe from the dangers of asbestos, both for staff and pupils.
You can find lots of information about the asbestos in schools campaign on this website, as well as various JUAC guidance documents and resources.

The Department for Education has now issued specific Asbestos Awareness Guidance for UK Schools and Colleges. JUAC supports the guidance and encourages all school staff to access the guidance at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/asbestos-management-in-schools–2
