National unit of competency- Supervise asbestos removal- CPCCBC4051A

Course Overview

Thousands of Australians have been killed by asbestos-related disease. The UK and Australia have the world’s highest asbestos-related death rates. Asbestos is very toxic. It causes a range of different lung disease that may develop slowly but are deadly in many cases. Although the use of asbestos is completely prohibited now, there is an increasing need for safely disposing asbestos as well as asbestos containing material (ACM).

Supervisors who are nominated are legally required in non-friable as well as friable asbestos removal jobs (see situations below). To be deemed to be a supervisor requires successful completion of the unit.

The unit specifies the outcomes that are required for supervising the removal process of non-friable and friable asbestos containing material (ACM). The unit includes planning the removal process as well as supervising it, including getting the work site and work area prepared, using compliant and safe perth asbestos removal practices, supervising the removal and decontamination processes and maintaining safety procedures.

Central to effecting performing this role is ensuring that the asbestos removal control plan (ARCP) is complied with. This includes documenting and ensuring that the air monitoring that is required as well as other certification and testing processes are performed by licensed asbestos assessors in accordance with legislation.

Friable Asbestos (any amount)

The licence for class A asbestos removal is for businesses to remove any quantity of friable asbestos (material containing asbestos in powder form or where it can be reduced to powder, pulverised or crumbled through hand pressure when it is dry). License holders of the Class A asbestos removal licence must ensure that a nominated supervisor directly supervise the process of removing the friable asbestos.

For class A asbestos removal, a nominated supervisor must be 18 years old at least and have three years minimum of relevant industry experience. In addition, the nominated supervisor must be certified in CPCCBC4051A Supervise asbestos removal and CPCCDE3015A Remove friable asbestos.

Non-Friable Asbestos (more than one individual removing)

When removal work for class B asbestos is being carried out by multiple individuals, the license holder is required to ensure that there is a supervisor who is readily available for the workers who are performing the asbestos removal work.

A supervisor of class B asbestos removal must be 18 years old at least and have one year minimum relevant industry experience. In addition, the supervisor is required to have certification in either CPCCDE3015A Remove friable asbestos or CPCCDE3014A Remove non-friable asbestos.

Will I need to apply to get a supervisor licence after completing this training?

No. You will need either a Class A or B licence (depending on the kind of asbestos removal you are going to be supervising). Completing this unit of competency successfully is the only thing required for you to be deemed a supervisor. It isn’t necessary to have any additional licence.
