The removal of asbestos-containing materials
from homes and workplaces has different obligations for householders and
contractors. Removal of asbestos should only be done with special care to avoid
the release of asbestos fibres into the air.
Home renovators and owner-builders must hold a certificate obtained under
arrangements approved or established by Queensland Health to remove more than
10 square meters of non-friable (also known as bonded) asbestos materials
