Asbestos Removal Course FAQs

89d186ae-06dd-4798-8d2a-88d37ac05152

Who should attend?

No level of exposure is safe. The Australian government banned the material in 2003, but 98% of homes and buildings constructed before 1976 contain asbestos. Disturbing materials can release tiny fibres into the air, increasing the risk of lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis.

For this reason, any persons undertaking construction work or trade work in buildings that may require the removal of asbestos should undertake this course.

An asbestos removal course gives workers and employers the knowledge and skills needed to safely remove or contain harmful material.

If you or your staff work in an environment that may include the need for asbestos removal, this training is a MUST.
