Asbestos Friable (Initial Course)

CPCCDE3015 Remove friable asbestos

Over the last two decades and due to high profile individual cases and media coverage, there is a heightened awareness of the health impact of asbestos exposure. Such exposure can cause a range of debilitating medical conditions, some of which are life threatening or associated with a marked reduction in life expectancy. Persons carrying out asbestos removal work are expected to have knowledge of how to perform asbestos removal safely on a range of sites and knowledge of relevant legislation, regulations and codes of practice.
Site location for work may be either domestic or commercial, and may be a demolition site, a new work site or an existing structure being renovated, extended, restored or maintained. Apart from construction sites, sites may also include ships, farms and mines (soils) and fences.
