What this course does and does not do?

  • This training fulfils the basic skills and knowledge requirements to manage asbestos in the workplace, including hazard recognition to avoid potential asbestos exposures.
  • Learners will gain the necessary knowledge to identify when and where asbestos and asbestos containing material (ACM) may be present, the precautions that need to be taken if it is present and reporting.
  • This course is a tailored to bridge a gap in traditional training for responsible persons or those in a management role. The unique course content is based on combined knowledge drawn from other formal accredited courses, audits, and case studies to bring to attention the work health and safety requirements for those in control.
  • The course also involves understanding each individual’s general duty of care to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all workers, visitors, contractors and others in the workplace.
  • This course does not represent a removal licence or permission to remove asbestos containing material without a license and/or government notification. Practical training for hands on maintenance or removal is provided in Working with Asbestos, or Class B and Class A removal training courses.
  • This course does not represent on-site verification of competency or site assessment and does not abdicate the PCBU’s or their representatives’ responsibility to implement their own safe management systems.
