Agency operatives register to be part of ALFA

ARCA announces that over 700 agency asbestos removal operatives have registered themselves in ALFA, the Asbestos Labour Feedback App.

These operatives are now able to be assigned, by ARCA member agencies, to asbestos removal jobs for ARCA member contractors, and obtain performance ratings. Already over 240 of these operatives have gained at least one rating.

“This is a great start for ALFA,” stated Steve Sadley, Chief Executive of ARCA. “Our member contractors need to comply with various regulations in this licensed industry, such as ensuring that only competent operatives undertake asbestos removal work. ALFA provides our members with operatives’ performance evidence from previous jobs, which is a big step towards giving some reassurance to ARCA members that the agency labour they intend to hire is competent.”
