Things to keep in mind...

  • class A asbestos removal work requires a licensed assessor to undertake the clearance inspection and issue the clearance certificate
  • class B asbestos removal work only requires a competent person to undertake the clearance inspection and issue the clearance certificate
  • where asbestos must be removed immediately, telephone SafeWork NSW on 13 10 50
  • immediate removal of asbestos may be commenced if:
    • there's a sudden and unexpected event, including a failure of equipment, that may cause people to be exposed to respirable asbestos fibres, or
    • an unexpected breakdown that requires immediate rectification to enable the work to continue.
