National Asbestos Awareness Week 2021

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

National Asbestos Awareness Week is organised by the Australian Government’s Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency, in partnership with state and territory government agencies and non-government organisations and replaces the National Asbestos Awareness Month funded by the NSW Government which ended in 2018.

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.
