A note on asbestos removal

With serious health implications associated with Asbestos, the removal and disposal of asbestos should be undertaken by a professional.

Hard-bonded (non-friable) asbestos under 10 square metres can be removed without a licence. Over 10 square metres or any amount of friable (loose fibres/soft-bonded) asbestos must be removed by a licensed and trained individual or business.

Should an individual choose to remove asbestos under 10 square metres, personal protective equipment must be used and all necessary safety precautions taken.

As a general rule, if the asbestos containing material can be easily disturbed and become air borne – by the effect of a breeze or simply creating a breeze by walking past it – it is in a friable state. Additionally, if hard-bonded Asbestos is damaged or excessively weathered, it should be considered friable. In both instances, a licensed professional should be engaged to remove the material.
