SafeWork NSW Fast Tracks Asbestos Assessments in Light of Fires

When conducting any kind of clean up after natural disasters, such as bushfires and floods, it’s important to be aware of the potential risks of damaged asbestos.

In light of this, SafeWork NSW recently waived it’s 5 day asbestos removal work notification timeframe following fierce bushfires in some parts of the state.

Fast tracking of assessments by SafeWork was implemented to ensure fire damaged asbestos was removed as soon as possible.

SafeWork said fire affected homes may have fire damaged asbestos materials which need to be removed safety for the health and safety of the community.
