National Asbestos Awareness Week 2021

Thank you for participating in National Asbestos Awareness Week: 22 - 28 November 2021

 

Asbestos Awareness Week Stakeholder Campaign Pack

 

Asbestos is still present in millions of homes, as well as public and commercial buildings across Australia.

In homes built before 1990, asbestos can still be found anywhere. This affects 1 in 3 homes nationwide.

This year’s National Asbestos Awareness Week (22-28 November 2021) campaign asks Australians to Think Twice About Asbestos. The campaign challenges complacency by reminding home renovators and tradespeople that the danger of asbestos is far from over.

The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness amongst the public and key trades about the health risks associated with exposure to asbestos fibres, where asbestos products can be found and prompt behavioural change – to contact a licensed asbestos professional.

The campaign pack provides a range of template written materials, print assets and online assets for organisations and individuals to use. Design files are also available for you to insert your own logo.
