The Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency was established on 1 July 2013 to provide a national focus on asbestos issues which goes beyond workplace safety to encompass environmental and public health concerns. The agency aims to ensure asbestos issues receive the attention and focus needed to drive change across all levels of government.


The National Strategic Plan for Asbestos Management and Awareness Progress Report 2015-16 was officially launched by the agency Chief Executive Officer, Peter Tighe at the 2016 Conference in Adelaide last week on 14 November 2016.
The agency has published new guidance and safety information for the removal of less than 10m² of non-friable asbestos particularly aimed at the do-it-yourself home renovators.  
The Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency Annual Report 2015-16 is now available on the website.
