Overview & Aim


Our aim is to eliminate asbestos-related diseases in Australia by preventing exposure to asbestos fibres.

To do this, we need to deal effectively with the harmful legacy of asbestos in our homes, workplaces and the environment.

NSP 2019–2023 has four national priorities to focus strategic actions. Together, these priorities aim to improve asbestos awareness and management.
