When an asbestos removal task is finished, it’s essential that before the area is reoccupied that a visual inspection is undertaken to ensure it is well cleaned and that all asbestos waste has been properly removed.
Note that this is a legal requirement for Class A (friable) asbestos under workplace health and safety legislation.
As per the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011, particular functions in regards to Class A asbestos removal work must be undertaken by an independent and licensed assessor.
These functions are
- Air monitoring during removal
- Clearance inspections
- Clearance certificate issuing
