Supervise Asbestos Removal Melbourne

As the housing and redevelopment boom continues across Australia, the threat of both friable and non-friable asbestos remains ever-present amongst older buildings and areas zoned for redevelopment.

Even with the required tickets and asbestos removal training, a team of tradespeople cannot legally undertake large-scale (10sqm+) asbestos removal work without the presence of a qualified Asbestos Safety Supervisor on site.

ATTENTION ALL CLASS ATTENDANTS: According to the government, state and ASQA guidelines, Edway Training remains open. Please refer to the booking calendar for the latest schedule.

COVID-19 Action plan

In line with the federal government’s quarantine plan, we have changed our operations:

  • We have increased sanitizing of all surfaces and classrooms
  • We have reduced the number of students in each class to be in line with the government’s requirements
  • Anyone with signs of infection is refused entry into the classroom
  • We are keeping our operations going at a significantly decreased capacity to allow our clients and students to get qualifications to start work during and straight after this crisis passes

We remind all the participants to follow health guidelines:

  • Stay home if you feel unwell or recently visited (14 days) areas where COVID-19 is spreading
  • If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance
  • Follow the directions of your local health authority

We appreciate your support during these difficult times for our country and the world.
