CPCCDE3014 Remove non-friable asbestos

This two-day course provides students with the skills and knowledge they need to safely remove non-friable asbestos while protecting both themselves and the community from the risk of exposure.

Having to remove asbestos contaminated material from a worksite presents a challenge to both workers and the community. For workers, they need to ensure any risk of exposure to asbestos fibres is minimised. Correct handling and disposing of asbestos is critical to protecting the community from the risks of exposure. 

Exposure to asbestos fibres can have long-term health implications. In some cases, the diseases caused by exposure can be fatal.
