This course covers the skills and knowledge required to safely remove non-friable (bonded) asbestos containing material (ACM) as well as the required knowledge of decontamination and disposal requirements.

Non-friable asbestos means material containing asbestos that is not friable, including material containing asbestos fibres reinforced with a bonding compound.

Asbestos was once used in Australia in more than 3,000 different products including fibro, flue pipes, drains, roofs, gutters, brakes, clutches and gaskets. Asbestos materials were used commonly in the building industry between the 1940s and late 1980s. A total ban on asbestos came into effect in Australia on 31 December 2003.

Asbestos becomes a health risk when its fibres are released into the air and breathed in. Breathing in asbestos fibres can cause asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.

Workers required to remove ten square metres or more of bonded asbestos are legally required to hold a competency in asbestos removal. Workers required to remove less than ten square metres of bonded asbestos are not required to hold a unit of competency though should have received asbestos removal awareness training on the safe removal of asbestos.
