Why Is Asbestos Removal Training in Perth Necessary?
The removal of asbestos requires safety procedures to minimize exposure to harmful airborne fibers. Handling certain types of asbestos-containing material can release fibers into the air. Inhaling asbestos fibers can cause scarring in the lungs, increasing the risk of various asbestos-related diseases, such as lung cancer and mesothelioma.
The use of asbestos mostly ended in the 1990s and was completely banned in 2003. However, many properties were built before asbestos was banned. Older structures are more likely to contain friable and non-friable asbestos.
Friable asbestos includes asbestos-containing materials that are easily crushed or pulverized, such as asbestos cement sheets. Asbestos cement panels may break when handled, which creates health risks. Other examples of friable asbestos include various forms of insulation, such as spray insulation and pipe insulation.
Non-friable (bonded) asbestos products are less likely to release fibers into the air. Examples include vinyl floor tiles and bitumen-based waterproofing material.
Asbestos Removal Course Prerequisites
White card training is a prerequisite for both Class A and Class B asbestos removal certificate courses. If you completed construction induction training before September 2009, you may need to retake your white card training. A refresher course is also recommended every two years.
The Class B (remove non-friable asbestos) course is a prerequisite for the Class A (remove friable asbestos) course. After learning the asbestos removal process for dealing with non-friable asbestos, you can learn how to remove friable material.
