Sanctions against asbestos licence holders

Queensland Government agencies with responsibilities to enforce the law may sanction licences or other authorisations concerning asbestos and in accordance with their enforcement framework. Sanctions may include adding conditions, cancelling, suspending, disqualifying or issuing warnings to a licence holder. Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ) licences people to remove licenced quantities of asbestos and asbestos containing materials under the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011. WHSQ sanctions licence holders who do not carry out this work safely and competently. A summary of licence sanctions from 2018–2021 is detailed below.
