The focus on this campaign is aimed at tradespeople and DIY home improvers. The ‘Be Asbestos Ready’ campaign is set to  highlight that any home maintenance or improvement work be thoroughly inspected before any work takes place.

Asbestos is dangerous when disturbed so should not be removed without a licensed professional. They will provide advice on correct removal and safety for people’s health.

The NSW EPA have developed messages and short videos for this campaign to make everyone aware of the implications for health and safety of owners and tradespeople involved in renovations. These can be accessed by clicking on the highlighted links.
