What is licensable asbestos work?

Licensable work with asbestos refers to activities which involve “significant hazard, risk or public concern”, such as the removal of high risk asbestos contained materials.  

These high risk works can be classified as:

  • Having prolonged exposure to asbestos (e.g more than one hour per week).
  • Working with asbestos that is friable in nature, e.g has the potential to break down into smaller pieces, disperse and be inhaled.
  • When exposure of workers is expected to exceed the legal control limit of 0.1 asbestos fibres per cubic centimetre of air (0.1 f/cm3) (averaged over a four hour period).
  • When the concentration of asbestos in the air is expected to exceed 0.6f/cm3 measured over 10 minutes.
  • Working with ACMs that are in poor condition and may break down during removal.

Examples of licensable work with asbestos include (but are not restricted to):

  • removing sprayed coatings 
  • any work involving loose fill insulation
  • work on asbestos millboard
  • cleaning up significant quantities of loose/fine debris containing ACM dust 

Only contractors with a licence can carry out licensed asbestos removal and all work must be notified to the appropriate enforcing authority prior to it commencing.
