Beware of Asbestos, Tradies Warned

Tradespeople in Victoria are being urged to educate themselves about asbestos, particularly how to identify it so as not to expose themselves and others to the deadly substance when engaging in renovation, demolition and maintenance work.

The asbestos awareness campaign was launched by WorkSafe recently and includes radio, online and trade publication advertisements aimed at raising awareness about diseases linked to asbestos including Mesolthelioma, Asbestosis and lung cancer.

According to the Australian Mesothelioma Register, around 60 per cent of mesothelioma cases are as a result of asbestos exposure in the workplace.

In 2016 there were at least 95 mesothelioma deaths in Victoria and 145 new cases.  See more at http://content.safetyculture.com.au/news/index.php/02/campaign-warns-tradies-dangers-asbestos/#.Woh3veclE1l
