Asbestos removal licences

WorkSafe issues three types of asbestos removal licence for tasks such as removing asbestos and adding an additional site supervisor.


Asbestos removal notification

You must complete a notification for each job and location where you perform asbestos removal work:

  • at least 24 hours before starting asbestos removal work if the total area to be removed is 10 square metres or less of non-friable asbestos-containing material
  • within 24 hours of starting asbestos removal work if the asbestos removal work is undertaken as the result of an unexpected situation
  • at least five days before the asbestos removal work starts in all other cases, including where asbestos removal work involves friable asbestos or non-friable asbestos greater than 10 square metres
