IF GOVERNMENT DON'T BAN ENGINEERED STONE, WE WILL

As the engineered stone industry places full-page ads in metro newspapers and bombards social media with misinformation, the ACTU Executive have resolved to ban engineered stone by the middle of next year, if government bans are not in place by then. 

This will mean union members will not allow engineered stone to be transported or used on building sites across Australia.

It’s now up to State and Federal governments to step up, draw a line in the sand, and ban it once and for all. SafetyNet understands WHS Ministers are planning to meet, possibly as early as this Friday, to make a decision on the issue. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, a very useful radio segment is can be accessed via the link below. It features Professor Deb Yates and Kate Cole calling out untrue claims made by the Engineered Stone Industry.
