SILICOSIS KILLS

Silicosis, the deadly disease caused by exposure to silica dust, poses a significant risk to over 500,000 Australian workers across the country.

Research conducted by Curtin University suggests that without intervention, up to 100,000 workers could develop silicosis in their lifetimes in Australia.

Join us for a crucial webinar on Silicosis and its impact.

At Trades Hall, we believe that by equipping HSRs with insights into silicosis, we can proactively protect our work groups.

That's why we have organized a webinar featuring Emily Archer, Slater & Gordon’s dust disease expert.

Join us for this important online event via Zoom, where we will identify high-risk occupations, effective silicosis treatment and understand our rights when working with Silica in Victoria.

There’ll be ample opportunity for engaging discussions and an open forum for questions. We look forward to your participation!

Date: Thursday, 29 June
Time: 4:00 PM
Location: Zoom

Note: Please ensure you have Zoom installed on your device to join the webinar.
