Remove Friable Asbestos is a fast-growing industry that requires specific training around awareness and management. When asbestos containing materials (ACM) are present, or even suspected of being present in the workplace, only qualified personnel are able to safely manage or remove it.
Our remove friable asbestos course is conducted over 16hrs in our state of the art simulator and training rooms. With your Asbestos Removal Training complete, you will be recognised by State regulators as having the necessary training to meet WHS and OHS asbestos licensing and regulations. Strategically designed to provide in-depth knowledge of the dangers of asbestos, our courses equip you with removal knowledge as well as management and compliance requirements under the new WHS regulations.
Workers must complete the specified VET course before carrying out asbestos work. This course provides guidance on identifying asbestos containing materials, understanding the risks posed by asbestos and how to work safely in areas where asbestos may be suspected or confirmed.
The course will cover the following areas:
- Prepare for asbestos removal
- Prepare asbestos removal area and removal site
- Enclose removal site.
- Carry out asbestos removal process
- Carry out decontamination process.
- Clean up work site
- Contribute to and use documentation in line with regulatory requirements
