Course Objectives

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required for assessors to visually inspect and use a range of measuring devices to undertake the monitoring of airborne asbestos fibres in the workplace as an integral part of identifying hazards, assessing risks, monitoring the effectiveness of controls, and ensuring that the workplace is free of asbestos fibres prior to reoccupation.

The unit includes the planning of the monitoring process, the selection and use of processes and air-monitoring equipment, the conduct of the assessment process, and the proper handling and interpretation of results.

Asbestos assessment and air monitoring are required during all friable (Class A) asbestos removal and for non-friable asbestos removal where a risk assessment indicates that airborne asbestos fibres may result from the removal activity.
