New dedicated mini sites for electricians and plumbers

18 Aug 2021

The Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency has created and published two new mini sites for electricians and plumbers. 

These dedicated sites contain information about where electricians and plumbers might find asbestos while working, the laws that relate to the management and removal of asbestos, and how they can protect themselves and others from exposure to harmful asbestos fibres.

The new sites display the information found in the Asbestos awareness for electricians brochure and the Asbestos awareness for plumbers brochure in a responsive and easy to read format that can be accessed from computers, tablets and mobile phones.
