Under the Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016, a PCBU (a company, sole trader, or self-employed person) is required to have an Asbestos Removal Licence issued by WorkSafe to legally remove more than 10m2 of non-friable asbestos (Class B). Unit standards covered: 2138 and 29765
Responsible for around 220 deaths each year, asbestos is New Zealand’s leading workplace killer - but despite its widely known risks, businesses and tradespeople are still failing to protect their workers.
The recent sentencing (the first of its kind under new legislation) for unqualified and unsafe asbestos removal highlights the need for awareness of asbestos regulations.
