Asbestos Training – Sample Naturally Occurring Asbestos

This short video provides training to safely take a sample of suspected Naturally Occurring Asbestos (NOA) from soil, rock or ground for testing in our NATA accredited Asbestos testing laboratory.

Anyone working on ground-disturbing activities (road building, agriculture, forestry, mining, quarrying and urban development) in high potential NOA areas should undertake Naturally Occurring Asbestos training to identify suspected materials and safely take a sample for testing.  You can find a map of high potential NOA areas here: Naturally Occurring Asbestos in NSW Map.

Naturally Occurring Asbestos can also be disturbed by weathering such as wash-aways or natural rock cracking so is a potential hazard for general land users in high potential NOA areas.
