Working with Businesses, Major Industries and Australian Homeowners
Asbestos products were very popular and used for years in all types of buildings, including homes and workplaces.
Unfortunately, all types of asbestos are now known to cause cancer.
In Australia, the use of asbestos began being phased out in the 1970s due to concerns about the health issues it causes. Use of asbestos was finally banned in 2003.
However asbestos is still present in buildings that were built before the ban.
Legislation is now in place to protect people from the risk posed by asbestos. So if there is any possibility that asbestos might be present where you’re working, you need to make sure everyone is safe from exposure, and that you comply with relevant regulations.
