What You Need To Know Before Enrolling In A Non-Friable Asbestos Course


A non-friable asbestos course teaches the fundamentals of identifying and removing non-friable asbestos in a given environment. Non-friable asbestos refers to a form of asbestos that has been hardened by exposure to various chemicals or combined with other solid substances such as concrete. As a result, it cannot be pulverised, crumbled or turned to dust.

Although non-friable asbestos is less likely to release harmful asbestos fibres into the air, any amount of asbestos dust poses a health risk, which is why the appropriate training and certification are required for identifying and removing asbestos materials.

Although asbestos has been banned in Australia for more than a decade, the risks of asbestos exposure are most significant in the home renovation industry, especially in older homes or buildings. This is because renovations could lead to unknown exposure, putting workers and potential buyers at risk. This is why accredited non-friable asbestos courses are critical in reducing the risks of exposure and handling of asbestos-containing materials.

The Best Approach To Asbestos Removal. 

In Australia, the majority of homes built from the mid-1980s to 1990 contain asbestos materials, rendering these properties hazardous for residential purposes. However, when these properties undergo construction and renovation, workers are susceptible to direct exposure to asbestos particles, therefore putting their health at risk.

So, while ridding our homes of asbestos is important, it is a hazardous job that requires professional attention and training. This is where a non-friable asbestos course proves valuable, assisting the appropriate identification and removal procedures without harming yourself or the environment around you.
