Asbestos Awareness

Asbestos and Asbestos Dust Kills

Unions continue to work towards making our workplaces and homes asbestos free.  We do this by:
  • working to ensure that regulation is such that it protects workers and the community from exposure to asbestos
  • encouraging government to ensure that regulation is complied with, and to prosecute where it is not complied with
  • promoting awareness in the general community of asbestos and the dangers of exposure
  • promoting asbestos support groups to assist those who have contracted asbestos-related disease and their families
