These materials are more likely to release larger quantities of asbestos fibres when being removed than lower risk materials like asbestos cement.

 

As a result, workers who are employed in removing higher risk ACMs require specific training and follow specific working practices and techniques to prevent any hazards. Employees also use sophisticated Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) for extra safety and are legally required to be under regular medical surveillance in case of any emergencies.
