Asbestos Awareness Month

Asbestos Awareness Month

November is Asbestos Awareness Month

Each week 13 Australians die of asbestos related diseases and this number is predicted to rise in coming years due to homeowners, renovators and tradies disturbing asbestos and releasing fibres that can be inhaled by adults and kids during home renovations.

Understanding the dangers of asbestos and knowing how to manage it safely can help save lives.

To assist renovators and tradies Council encourages you to visit www.asbestosawareness.com.au where you can find easy to read and useful tools to identify asbestos and to ensure it is then managed and removed safely.
