NOvember is national Asbestos Awareness Month. In the lead-up to Asbestos Awareness Day (Friday 25 NOvember) all Australians especially homeowners, renovators tradies and handymen need to learn how to protect themselves and families from exposure to dangerous asbestos fibres.

Many wrongly believe ONLY fibro homes contain asbestos. Asbestos products can most likely be found in ANY Australian home built or renovated before 1987, even brick, weatherboard, fibro and clad homes: in garages, kitchens, bathrooms, laundries, walls, eaves, fences and under wall and floor coverings: it could be anywhere!

Don’t play renovation roulette! For more details visit asbestosawarenss.com.au. It’s not worth the risk!

If you suspect you have asbestos in your home, Council Building Services Offers can take a sample and have it lab tested. To book a test contact Council on 1300 ISAACS or email records@isaac.qld.gov.au
