Why are you required to complete an Asbestos Awareness Training?

ACT and Canberra-based workers are required to take the 10675NAT Asbestos Awareness Course. To be able to work on building sites, workers need to take the 10675Nat Asbestos Awareness Course. Exposure to asbestos can increase your risk of developing an inflammatory lung condition called asbestosis. This condition can cause permanent lung damage and shortness in breath. It may increase the chance of developing lung carcinoma. Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011 require that the proper information, training and instruction are given to assist in the identification of asbestos. This is currently fulfilled by the approved training course, 10675NAT Class in Asbestos Awareness.

No acceptance of training completed prior January 2008 will be given to training previously done. Training that was given between January 2008-June 2014 must have been done through an accredited registered training institution. If the training course fails to meet these requirements then training in the 10675NAT Asbestos Awareness Course will be required.

The purpose and intent of the training course are to reduce the risks to health and safety from asbestos exposure. The Minister's declaring of occupations lists a wide range of occupations where workers can reasonably be exposed. All workers with an occupation in Minister's declaration must take the training. Aside from builders and plumbers bricklayers, stonemasons architects, AC mechanics civil engineers scaffolders and roof tilers all need to complete the asbestos awareness course.

What will you gain from the completion of the 10675NAT Asbestos Awareness Course

The 10675NAT Asbestos Awareness Course was created to help workers learn how to identify and recognise asbestos. This course does NOT address the removal and encapsulation.

Participants should know the potential dangers and health risks associated to asbestos by the time they complete the course. Lung damage also known as asbestosis is the main risk associated with asbestos exposure. Asbestos exposure increases the risk that you will develop lung cancer. The 10675NAT Course is also about asbestos awareness training. Participants also learn the best places to find asbestos and the common materials that contain it.

Asbestos was not banned in Australia until December 2003. However, asbestos is no longer used in domestic construction materials since the 1980s. Although asbestos is no longer being used, it is still common to find in commercial and domestic properties that were built before the ban. Asbestos could be used in a variety of construction materials. It was an affordable material. In older buildings, asbestos may be present in the insulation, tiles wallboards gutters downspouts flashing plaster cement and vinyl flooring.

There may be asbestos in elevator equipment including brake shoes. Alternate properties could also have asbestos-containing areas such as electrical panel partitions or cooling towers.

The training course also discusses the safety procedures required to treat asbestos once it's been identified. In most cases, asbestos must first be reported to the appropriate authorities and encapsulated by a qualified company.

PCBUs can make sure that asbestos awareness training is completed on a building site.
