The Work Health and Safety Regulations contain specific obligations for a number of duty holders in relation to safely removing asbestos, including requirements for asbestos removalists to be licensed.
Asbestos contaminated dust or debris (ACD) at a workplace must be cleaned up by a Class A asbestos removalist unless:
- associated with a Class B asbestos removal job
- generated by a removal job of 10 square metres or less of non-friable asbestos
- it is a 'minor contamination' not associated with asbestos removal.
For more guidance and examples of a 'minor contamination' of ACD visit the Safe Work Australia website.
