Course Overview

Asbestos-related disease has killed thousands of Australians. Australia and the UK have the highest rates of asbestos-related death in the world. Asbestos is highly toxic, causing a range of lung diseases that are slow to develop but in many cases deadly. While its use is now completely prohibited, there is a growing need to safely dispose of asbestos and asbestos containing material (ACM).

When asbestos containing materials (ACM) are present, or even suspected of being present in the workplace, only qualified personnel are permitted to safely manage or remove it. Any worker removing more than 10m² of non-friable (also known as ‘bonded’) asbestos must be appropriately trained, as outlined in the Work Health & Safety Regulation 2011 and the Code of Practice for the Safe Removal of Asbestos. Non-friable asbestos materials include asbestos cement sheeting, often called fibro, used in many buildings before 1990. The sheeting was used for cladding, roofs and fences and can often be found as backing boards in wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms.

This course is a legal requirement for workers who need to remove more than 10m² of non-friable asbestos.

Please note: Pinnacle Safety and Training will not use any asbestos containing material during this training program.

“What can I do once I complete this training?”

This course is a requirement for obtaining a Class B asbestos removal licence.

In Victoria, an employer or self-employed person requires this licence (or a Class A licence) to remove non-friable asbestos if:

  • the area of asbestos-containing material to be removed exceeds 10m² in total, or
  • the total time for the asbestos removal work exceeds one hour over a seven day period.

For more information on how to apply for a licence, please visit WorkSafe Victoria.

Employed workers: You need to do this course, but do not need a Class A or B licence yourself if you are working under the authority of a licenced operator (e.g. the company or supervisor).

Homeowners in Victoria: WorkSafe Victoria recommends you use a licenced asbestos removalist if disturbing more than 10m² of non-friable asbestos in your home.

Course Outline

Our nationally recognised remove non-friable asbestos course is designed for anyone who may be required to manage or remove asbestos in Australia. This training course is taught by experienced instructors who will outline theory and practical scenarios that are relevant to your work site. This training course is very hands on with at least 50% of the time allotted to the practical aspects of operating in an asbestos worksite.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • Legislation and recent changes
  • Hazards of asbestos and health effects
  • Planning and preparing for asbestos removal
  • Methods of isolation of the work site
  • Carry out asbestos removal process
  • Decontamination
  • Clean up work site
  • Contribute to and use documentation in line with regulatory requirements

Reaccreditation

WorkSafe Victoria’s Compliance Code for removing asbestos in workplaces states that refresher training should be conducted every two years for persons undertaking Class B asbestos removal work. However, it needs to be conducted more often if the work methods, type of equipment being used or type of work changes.

Course Inclusions

  • We supply all equipment necessary for you to undertake training
  • Training conducted by experienced industry experts
  • Plenty of practical hands on training

Mandatory Prerequisites

  • Participants must be at least 15 years of age
  • All participants must hold CPCCOHS1001A - ‘Work safely in the construction industry’ obtained after 11 May 2009 OR CPCCWHS1001/CPCWHS1001 - ‘Prepare to work safely in the construction industry’. This is commonly known as a ‘White Card’.
  • If you do not provide this by the business day prior to your course commencement, your enrolment will be cancelled, and you will not be permitted entry to the course. If this occurs, our terms and conditions will apply and therefore your course fee will not be refunded nor held in credit.

I just completed my upgrade with Pinnacle and was thoroughly impressed with the knowledge and professionalism displayed by the trainer Michael. He displayed a great depth of knowledge and managed to make the entire two-day session relevant to a disparate group of part time trainers. Well done!
