For Immediate Release:

August 21,2013

POTTS POINT, NSW- Australia’s Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) training company, AlertForce (AF), is now an approved provider of Asbestos B-Class training in Victoria.

Since January 2013, a new set of asbestos training laws have been implemented that all Asbestos-industry professionals are required to adhere to. Now participants from Victoria can enroll in AF’s  training courses and receive up-to-date knowledge and experiences to effectively and safely attend to situations involving asbestos.

The main components needed to attain a B-class license are:

(1) Participants must enroll in Asbestos training courses offered by a licensed training professional, such as AlertForce. To qualify for the license, a company must have a trained Asbestos supervisor. Supervisors in charge of asbestos-related matters must complete the Supervise Asbestos Removal (CPCCBC4051A) course which will train participants to be competent in supervising the removal process of asbestos or ACM. This course will explore areas such as the planning and supervising of the removal of asbestos or asbestos containing material, preparing the worksite, and using safe and approved removal methods.

(2) Employees must complete training in an asbestos removal course such as the Remove Non-friable Asbestos. This course will provide participants with the the skills and knowledge needed to properly remove non-friable asbestos. It will also teach participants the history of the deadly material, as well as control measures, risk prevention, and legal issues related to Asbestos.

“ We at AlertForce are so pleased that we can provide our excellent an unparalleled Class-B training to the asbestos-industry professionals in the Victoria area. Our training courses are of crucial importance for any industry leaders or professionals who want to have quality training in the asbestos removal process! “ says Brendan Torazzi, AlertForce company founder.

Regardless of if a company’s employees had previously completed asbestos-training in the past; AlertForce’s new courses target the most up-to-date, and current asbestos-removal laws and legislation. Successfully completing these courses will render participants eligible to receive the Class B Asbestos License in Victoria.A licence holder is permitted to remove up to 10 m2 of non-friable asbestos or ACM.
