- Class B asbestos removal

Asbestos removal activities are carefully regulated.

Asbestos removal licenses are often needed in the construction industry. An asbestos removal license holder may be needed to clear asbestos from a site before work activities can resume.
Asbestos remains a health hazard for workers throughout South Australia. The material was banned in 2003 but is still found in older construction materials, such as asbestos cement sheets and floor tiles. However, the main health concerns come from friable asbestos products.
Friable asbestos products are easily crushed when disturbed, such as when attempting to remove the material. Disturbing the material may release small airborne fibers. Inhaling asbestos fibers can scar the lungs and increase the risk of several health conditions, including asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.
Asbestos Removal Training Topics and Course Outcomes

All courses are designed around nationally recognized units of competency. For example, the class B asbestos removal unit of competency specifies that participants should gain an understanding of the following topics:
- Safety requirements
- Preparing for asbestos removal
- Identifying non-friable asbestos
- Signage and barricade requirements
- Decontamination procedures
- Isolation of the removal site
- Carrying out the asbestos removal process
The class B course is necessary for removing non-friable asbestos. To remove the friable form of asbestos material, you must complete the class A course. The class A course includes the same topics, but with a focus on friable material. After the completion of the friable asbestos removal course, you may obtain an asbestos removal ticket for carrying out an asbestos removal control plan.
All asbestos removal work also requires licensed asbestos assessors. An asbestos assessor license is necessary for air monitoring and clearance inspections for class A asbestos removal work. Obtaining an asbestos assessor license involves the completion of the CPCCBC5014A (Conduct Asbestos Assessment) course.
