Thank you for participating in Asbestos Awareness Week: November 23 - 29, 2020.
Asbestos is still present in millions of Australian homes and can be easily disturbed when doing renovations, home improvements and maintenance.
If a home was built or renovated prior to 1990, there is a good chance it has some asbestos.
Our theme for 2020 is ‘Asbestos lurks in more places than you’d think’ and will be supplemented with the sub-theme ‘before you start, be aware’.
The sub-theme relates to the fact that people are using the extra time we all have at home due to COVID-19 to do home improvements and maintenance. It encourages people to be aware of the potential asbestos risks before they start any work.
The campaign messaging has three parts:
- KNOW the health risks of asbestos exposure
- BE AWARE of where asbestos might be found before you start work (“it lurks in more places than you’d think”)
- CALL a professional to check, remove and dispose of it safely.
The campaign pack provides a range of template materials, social tiles and graphics for organisations and individuals to use.
You can also access these resources individually including in word format:
