Reports say that around 450 workers at Perth’s new children’s hospital recently signed an “asbestos register” to monitor their health in the future, following the discovery of asbestos as the site.
Asbestos was recently discovered in a roof panel installed in the hospital. The area where the discovery was made has since been isolated.
Some workers, including those showered in asbestos dust were shocked at the discovery. These workers were sent home, with the work clothes covered in asbestos dust, putting their families at risk of exposure.
