On the occasion of asbestos awareness week, the health and education department under the Queensland government, headquartered in Australia has given some hints and instructions to make your place free from asbestos.

Prior to the above, the Workplace Health and Safety Queensland is about to host an absolutely free asbestos safety session on Tuesday to deliver extremely crucial asbestos safety measures.

The session will be held online where useful tips will be shared about the use of asbestos related products along with the dangers associated with it.

The department also has to focus on the dangers of using high-pressure water blasters to clean asbestos fences and roofs.

This is what Ms. Grace has to say, “If you’re working on a property that was built or renovated before 1990, it is likely to contain products with asbestos in them,” she said.

“More than 3000 asbestos containing materials were used in construction of residential homes in that time.

“Always play it safe before carrying out any renovation work or cleaning the exterior of a home.

“Asbestos products in good condition are not a risk, but if they are disturbed, broken, sanded, blasted with high pressure water or cut, they can release asbestos fibers into the air, putting the health of yourself and others at risk.

“Asbestos fibers are invisible to the naked eye, but they are still dangerous.” 

“Queensland Safety Advocates, Julie and Don Sager also will share their personal story on the risks of home renovations, after losing their son Adam to mesothelioma at just 25.

“Join the safety session to hear from Adam’s parents on how unknowingly working on asbestos in their home changed their lives.

“As part of Asbestos Awareness Week, we are also launching a series of films about how to locate common asbestos containing materials in your home, as well as guidance on asbestos disposal, identifying asbestos inside and outside your home, and what not to do with asbestos.”
