Target Audience

This course aligns itself to the model Code of Practice which has been developed by Safe Work Australia to provide practical guidance on how to manage risks associated with asbestos and asbestos containing material (ACM) at the workplace and thereby minimise the incidence of asbestos related diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer.

This course is aimed at those who are responsible for the management of asbestos in the Australian workplace, aimed to protect workers from asbestos exposure and enforce safe removal practices to protect building occupants and others at the workplace.

Completing this course does not equate to either of the asbestos removal licences, but provides the fundamentals of best practice management.
