Following any asbestos work carried out, there are requirements to ensure the work area, tools and workers are decontaminated and asbestos waste is disposed of properly. In addition to this, for licensed removal work a clearance inspection will be required before the work area can be reoccupied for ordinary use.
Asbestos Clearance Certificates are issued by Licenced Asbestos Assessors following licensed asbestos removal works to notify stakeholders that the area is safe for re-occupation. The competent person will Visually inspect the asbestos work area to make sure it has been properly cleaned. Clearance monitoring may be required to ensure that the work area is free of asbestos fibres prior to being certified for reoccupation.
Clause 489 of the WHS Regulation states that “An asbestos assessor licence is required for air monitoring, clearance inspections and clearance certificates for class A removal work (friable asbestos removal work)”.
