Tradies National Health Month aims to bring awareness to key workplace issues with a focus in safety and health.

In Australia, asbestos remains a hidden danger in homes and buildings. Because asbestosis is a deadly lung disease, it is prohibited from being used. However, asbestosis remains in buildings, such as walls and insulation.
Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 states that a “person conducting a business” (PCBU) is the person responsible for the primary duty under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 to ensure workers’ safety and health to the greatest extent possible. All workers who may come in contact with asbestos fibres or asbestos-containing material (ACMs), have to be trained by PCBUs. For plumbers and electricians working in the ACT, Working Safely With Asbestos Containing Material is a mandatory training program.
Hazardous materials training for Australia wide based learners
Digital awareness training is also available in Australia for other states. Courses Asbestos Awareness for the Workplace elearning teaches you about the dangers of asbestos. This elearning explains how asbestos hazards can occur at work and provides some guidelines for controlling them.
This course, which was co-created by Greencap, is for individuals responsible for managing asbestos in Australian workplaces. It lasts 50 minutes. This course aims to protect workers against asbestos exposure and protect others in the workplace.
This course is not equivalent to any asbestos removal licenses, but will teach you the basics of best management practices.
Asbestos Awareness provides useful resources to tradies who work on residential sites. Asbestos is found in 1 out of 3 Australian homes, so tradies will likely come across it daily during their workdays. Asbestos Awareness Tradie 20 Point Safety Check is a great tool that can be used as a reference to workplace training.
Other tradie workplace courses include Working Safely With Hazardous Chemicals, Confined Spaces Hazard guide and Working Safely With Hazardous Chemicals.
