Friable asbestos is a brittle material and is considered more hazardous than non-friable asbestos. Friable asbestos can be easily crumbled or reduced to powder with minimal pressure and by hand.
All personnel removing friable asbestos must be trained to minimise the safety risk friable asbestos can cause.
Why is Friable Asbestos Removal training important?
Friable asbestos is a highly toxic and hazardous material that can be highly harmful to humans, animals and the environment. While the use of friable asbestos and asbestos-containing material (ACM) is now prohibited, there is a constant need to safely dispose of the hazardous material.
Friable asbestos removal is often due to property owners wanting to change friable asbestos material for something less harmful during demolition or renovation projects.
