ACT Asbestos Awareness Training

If you are working in the ACT, The Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 (the Regulation) was amended to impose a duty on the person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) to ensure that all workers engaged by the PCBU, who they reasonably believe will work with asbestos or asbestos containing materials, are trained in the VET course ASBESTOS AWARENESS  10675NAT.  This course is a unique course to the ACT and is difficult to source out of that state.

There has been a recent amendment to the requirements of ACT ASBESTOS AWARENESS training.  There was a “direction” from Greg Jones, Work Safety Commissioner ACT, Delegate of the Regulator dated 8th November 2016.

“For the requirements of section 445 of the Regulation, the Regulator is satisfied that any of the specified VET courses for asbestos removal work or asbestos assessment work are other qualifications that the Regulator is satisfied provides a comparable level of knowledge in asbestos awareness training.

The specified VET courses are:

  • CPCCDE3014A – Remove non friable asbestos
  • CPCCDE3015A – Remove friable asbestos
  • CPCCBC4051A – Supervise asbestos removal
  • CPCCBC5014A – Conduct asbestos assessment associated with removal

Where a worker has satisfactorily completed any of the above specified VET courses, the Regulator is satisfied that the PCBU who has engaged that worker has met their obligation to provide asbestos awareness training in accordance with the provisions of section 445 of the Regulation.

The Regulator agrees that where a worker has completed any of the specified VET courses, WorkSafe ACT will not instigate proceedings or enforcement action for a breach of section 445of the regulation.”
