We tailor our training towards the asbestos removal industry and ensure all students take away information and an experience relevant to their workplace, in an enjoyable setting.
With asbestos being used in thousands of products and being widely used in Australia prior to its ban, there are still countless workplaces containing the deadly mineral. Friable asbestos products still common in workplaces include low density board (LDB), lagging, asbestos adhesives, insulation and fire affected or weathered asbestos products.
The Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 and How to Safely Remove Asbestos Code of Practice states that only appropriately trained workers are permitted to manage or remove friable asbestos. Workers that are to remove or manage friable asbestos have to complete this training.
This course covers both theoretical and practical components of friable asbestos removal.
Theoretical components include licensing, asbestos registers, asbestos removal control plans (ARCPs), safe work method statements (SWMS), clearance certificates and air monitoring requirements. Not only do we cover this critical documentation but we also give you sample documentation to help you meet your legislative requirements.
Practical components involve you completing a risk assessment and relevant documentation, learning how to build and test an enclosure, completing a friable asbestos removal job, decontaminating your tools, equipment, PPE and yourself and then returning the work area to an operational condition.
Once you have completed our friable asbestos removal training you will have greater knowledge and skill to keep yourself safe around asbestos.
