November Is National Asbestos Awareness Month
Published on 01 November 2016
National Asbestos Awareness Month aims to alert Australians of the dangers of working with asbestos during home renovations and maintenance and educate them about where asbestos might be found.
Whether a home is constructed of weatherboard, brick, fibro or has exterior cladding, asbestos can be found in and around most homes built or renovated before 1987.
Asbestos can be found in kitchens, bathrooms, laundries and under floor covering, behind wall and floor tiles, in cement floors, internal and external walls, garages, ceilings, eaves, fences, extensions to homes and backyard sheds – it could be anywhere.
