Asbestos is still present in millions of homes, as well as public and commercial buildings across Australia.
In homes built before 1990, asbestos can still be found anywhere. This affects 1 in 3 homes nationwide.
This year’s National Asbestos Awareness Week (22-28 November 2021) campaign asks Australians to Think Twice About Asbestos. The campaign challenges complacency by reminding home renovators and tradespeople that the danger of asbestos is far from over.
