5. No employer shall either directly or indirectly perform any of the functions of application, enclosure, removal, or encapsulation of asbestos in any structure, nor enter into any contract with the owner or the owner's representative for the employer to perform such work or services, without first obtaining a nontransferable license from the Commissioner of Labor, except private employers subject to the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 U.S.C. s. 651 et seq.) who use their own employees to apply, enclose, remove, repair, or encapsulate asbestos in their own facility, or as otherwise exempted pursuant to section 7 of P.L.1994, c.21 (C.34:5A-43).
This license shall be in writing, shall be dated when issued, shall contain an expiration date, and shall be signed by the commissioner. The commissioner may issue employer licenses with such conditions as the commissioner deems necessary, and as adopted by regulation, specifying the scope of work authorized by such license. No license shall be issued by the commissioner unless the employer has completed a course of training certified by, and satisfactorily has completed an examination approved by, the Department of Health. The license shall give the name and address of the employer to whom it is issued. Licensed employers shall post a sign indicating, in letters more than four inches in height, "LICENSED BY THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY FOR ASBESTOS WORK," readily visible outdoors at the work site. The actual license shall be readily available at the work site for inspection by representatives of the Commissioners of Labor and Health and the contracting agency.
