Remove non-friable asbestos – CPCCDE3014A
February 8, 2018$500
A class B asbestos removal licence only covers work for the removal of:
- more than ten square metres of non-friable asbestos
- any asbestos contaminated dust or debris associated with the removal of this non-friable asbestos.
The licence does not authorise the removal of friable asbestos (class A asbestos removal work).
Non-friable asbestos is bonded asbestos where there is no loose fibres that can become airborne. It is usually found in cement sheeting, often called fibro, used in many Queensland buildings before 1990.
The sheeting was used for cladding, roofs and fences and can often be found as backing boards in wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms.
Where class B asbestos removal work is being carried out by more than one person, the licence holder must ensure a supervisor is readily available to the workers carrying out the asbestos removal work.
