This qualification may also be required by some principal contractors, organisations or government departments where workers are either removing less than 10m2 of non- friable asbestos related work (e.g. maintenance work).
A licensed asbestos removalist must not direct or allow a worker to carry out licensed asbestos removal work unless the removalist is satisfied that the worker holds a certification in relation to the specified VET course for asbestos removal relevant to the class of licensed asbestos removal work to be carried out by the worker. In this instance the licensed removal work is Class B which is the removal of more than 10m2 of non-friable asbestos or asbestos containing material.
Note: There are transitional arrangements in place until 31/12/2014 for persons holding previous certificates. Please refer to our web site for links to relevant WHSQ sites.
