Are you asbestos aware? November is Asbestos Awareness Month – a national campaign to make people aware of the dangers of asbestos and inform them how to avoid exposure as well as safe management of asbestos in both residential and commercial properties.
Australia has a long history of asbestos use and a high incidence of asbestos-related disease. Mesothelioma alone causes approximately 700 deaths per year – it is a cancer directly related to asbestos exposure.
Many of us have unknowingly been exposed to asbestos – don't be complacent about the risks.
