  2. When was your property built? Is it built before the 1980s? Does it have asbestos? You better find out. Especially, when you have any renovation plan there. A building with asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) needs special care when it comes to renovating. Fibrous materials are dangerous and have many health risks.

  3. What is asbestos? Asbestos is a term for a group of six naturally occurring mineral fibres belonging to two groups: Serpentine Group – comprised of only chrysotile (white asbestos) Amphibole Group – comprised of anthophyllite, amosite (brown asbestos or grey asbestos), crocidolite (blue asbestos), tremolite, and actinolite.

  5. ASBESTOS HEALTH RISKS • Asbestosis • Lung cancer • Mesothelioma • Pleural disease HEALTH MONITORING Before removing asbestos, you must arrange and pay for health monitoring by a medical practitioner for all asbestos removal workers or workers who may be exposed to asbestos during the removal process.

  6. ASBESTOS REMOVAL LICENCES Class A licence The class A licence allows you to remove friable asbestos, non friable asbestos and any asbestos contaminated dust or debris (ACD). Class B licence The class B licence is more common and allows you to remove 10 square metres or more of non friable asbestos, like fibro sheets. Having a class B licence only allows you to remove the asbestos contaminated dust or debris (ACD) that is directly associated with the removal of non friable asbestos.

  7. Preparing an asbestos removal control plan • A licensed asbestos removalist must prepare and document an asbestos removal control plan for any licensed asbestos removal work. The asbestos removal control plan must include: • Details of how the asbestos removal will be carried out, including the method to be used and the tools, equipment and personal protective equipment to be used • Details of the asbestos to be removed, including location, type and condition of the asbestos.
