  1. NEED TO ASBESTOS REMOVAL IN TOWNSVILLE

  2. Detecting Asbestos Materials in Your Property In Australia, asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) were widely used in residential, commercial and industrial properties between the 1940s until the late 1980s. ACMs fall into two broad categories, namely friable and non-friable.

  3. Friable Asbestos

  4. Friable materials can contain a high percentage of fibres and release them into the air when disturbed. Friable ACMs were usually used as: • fire retardants, • sound proofing, • insulation, • lining material on old domestic heaters, • stoves • hot water systems, • the backing of sheet vinyl • linoleum floor coverings • pipe insulation.

  6. Asbestos Removal Work An asbestos removal licence is held by a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU). Workers carry out licensed asbestos removal work on behalf of or for the PCBU who holds the licence. Individual workers do not hold an asbestos licence but must meet certain training requirements. An asbestos removal licence issued by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ) is valid for five years. Reference: http://www.deir.qld.gov.au/asbestos/removal/asbestos-removal-work.htm
