A Restricted Asbestos License (RAL) is required by law in Western Australia for the removal of materials that contain non-friable asbestos. Holding a current license allows you individually or your company to remove amounts exceeding 10m2 of bonded (non-friable) asbestos. This licence is monitored and issued by WorkSafe WA, but prior training is required to apply for the licence. Our course is WorkSafe approved.
