Asbestos Awareness

With one in three Australian homes containing asbestos in some form and with the popularity of home renovation programs rising - inspiring an ongoing boom in renovations - now more than ever before homeowners, renovators, tradies and handymen need to get to know asbestos.

Did you know that the NSW Government has a new place for the NSW community to find information on all things asbestos? The website www.asbestos.nsw.gov.au has been created for anyone searching for information on:

  • Checking for asbestos in homes, buildings and plant. 
  • How to safely manage asbestos. 
  • Asbestos removal and disposal.
  • Health impacts of asbestos. 
  • Finding licenced professionals to help identify, test or remove asbestos. 

The website was developed in partnership with local government, state agencies and industry.
