Asbestos Awareness Week

IT’S Asbestos Awareness Week.

Asbestos is linked with cancers and other diseases, and it’s left a terrible legacy in Australia.

According to Asbestos Free Tasmania, statistics are beginning to surface to show a new wave of the disease mainly due to Do-It-Yourself home renovations.

The week is about raising awareness about asbestos and expressing concern about the prevalence of the substance in our buildings.

So help raise awareness by talking about it with your friends, family and colleagues.

It’s great to be part of a union because a lot of voices are heard a lot more clearly than one little voice in the wilderness – it’s that power of collectiveness that’s so important. I’ve witnessed so many times where a group of people can make such a change. Tania
